Vision: All i wanted to do is to challenge myself and feed as many people I can at a music festival i was working at and also to make some extra money.
I asked the people organising the music festival and they agreed to let me sell it if I give them a 20% cut from whatever I make. And Then I got a food handeling permit which was $15 for 2 hours of questioning, super easy.
Step 1: Find the Things You Need.
I followed this recipe here http://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/samosa-recipe-pu...
I got potatoes from the farm I work at. The lady at the farm said she would sell me the potatoes for $1 per pound if i dig them myself. So i did that and dug around 25lbs. Also she let me pick plums from her plum tree and with that I made plum chutney.

All the rest of the produce I got from the local store. Also I got an electric fryer on amazon to fry the samosas in.
Step 2: Setup Work Station
My Samosa station was setup outside where I had a stove, my fryer, couple of trays, a rolling pin, and few bowls for the filling and dough.
Step 3: Menu
I designed this quickly on adobe illustrator and printed few pages from the library in town and cut each one out.
Step 4: After You Have Made Samosas, Hire Friends to Help You Sell Them.
I hired a couple of friends to help me sell the samosas while I prepared them. Each one of them got 20% of total amount they brought in.
Step 5: Have Fun While You Are Working.
I was playing my ukulele around while my friends were selling the Samosas for me. We ended up selling 800 Samosas. Everyone was selling it at a different price and we had few deals like 3 for $10 and 7 for $20.
Everything sold out. And Everyone made money. We made friends with a lot of amazing people and spent some time with the band members.
Looking forward to do this again soon! Hope you liked it.
Thank You :)
