Tortilla Samosas with Green Chutney

Tortilla Samosa and Green Chutney | The Full-time Foodie

Happy Spring Forward!!! Just kidding, this is probably the worst part of daylight savings.  I woke up this morning to my alarm feeling quite exhausted and realized it was because my internal clock was still an hour behind.  Yes, I’m one of those people who feels like even an hour of sleep is precious!  But on a happier note, it was a beautiful day out today!  I can’t remember the last time I was outside and felt like my jacket wasn’t necessary.  Very soon it’ll be down to cardigans and light jackets- can’t wait!!!!!

He’s a keeper So today I’m going in a completely different direction and sharing one of the most staple recipes in the Konkani world- Dalithoy.  My Konkani peers, no matter how much they associate themselves with our culture or know the language, certainly recognize Dalithoy.  I swear if there was a Konkani flag of some sort, a picture/illustration of …
