The perfect snack for after work chai time, the most loved party food, the one that makes fried food absolutely irresistible is delicious Samosa ..

Here is what we need -

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 medium sized potatoes
  • 2-3 green chilies
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbs green peas
  • 1 sp garam masala
  • handful of cilantro
  • 1 sp coarsely crushed coriander seeds
  • 1 sp fennel seeds (I avoid it as not a big fan really)
  • salt per taste
  • 1/2 cumin coriander powder
  • oil for deep frying and 1 tbs oil to make the batter
  • 2 tbs semolina
  • 1 tbs oil to add in the dough
  • 1/2 sp cumin seeds

Make the dough ready first as it should sit for 30 minutes before its ready to roll.

This should make 8 to 10 samosas.

Take flour in a bowl. Add semonila, salt and oil to it. Slowly by adding spoonful of water make a tight dough. wrap the dough in a cling plastic wrap.

In a pan take 1 tbs oil. once hot add cumin seeds, green chili and garlic paste.

Cut boiled potatoes in big pieces. Add it to the pan. Add salt, cumin coriander powder, coarsely crushed coriander seeds, garam masala powder and green peas. switch off the stove. Let the mixture cool off.

In another heavy bottom pan take oil for deep frying. Keep it on Medium heat.

Lets make the dumplings ready to fry. Divide the dough into equal parts. Roll out each ball into 6 to 7 inch round shape. Cut it into 2 halves.

Take some water to close all the ends of samosas.

When you cut it into halves, make a cone out of it using some water to stick the edges. put spoonful of mixture in the cone. and close the third side making a triangular shape.

This way keep all samosas ready and fry 2-3 in a batch.

enjoy this delicious snack with green chutney, ketch up or just as!
