Procedure

Dough for Samosa

  • Take flour, semolina, carom seeds and salt in a mixing bowl. Heat 1 tbsp oil and add in to flour. Mix this well and remove all lumps. Start kneading the dough by adding little water at a time. Dough should be little stiff. Cover the dough with plastic wrapper and let it rest for 20-25 minutes. Meanwhile make the stuffing for samosa.
Potato stuffing / Stuffing for samosa

  • Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds, pinch of asafoetida, green chilies, ginger, and curry leaves. Cook for few seconds. Add grated potato and mix well. Cook for 2 minutes. 
  • Add green peas, coriander powder, cumin powder, dry mango powder, turmeric powder, garam masala and salt to taste. Mix this really well and cook for 2-3 minutes. Keep stirring continuously.
  • Finally, add chopped cilantro and lime juice. Now, stuffing is ready. Let it cool down. Make 10 balls of stuffing and keep them aside.

Making of samosa

  • Make 5 equal sized balls from dough. Take one ball and roll it like a thin roti. Cut it into 2 parts. Apply few drops of water on edges and fold it like a cone as shown in picture. Place one stuffing ball in it and seal the bottom really well. Follow the same procedure to make rest of samosa.
  • Fry them nicely from both sides till nice brown color. Serve them with any chutney or ketchup. I served them with black chickpeas curry. Click here to see the recipe - Black chickpeas Curry.
