While I can't vouch for it being anywhere close to accurate for any  
particular region, I have seen items _called_ samosas made with  
phyllo dough and any of several fairly standard samosa fillings,  
which could be spread (or even sprayed) with oil instead of butter,  
and also seen those thin Shanghai spring roll wrappers used.
