Preparation

  1. Make soft dough using flour, semolina, salt, ghee & a little water.

  4. Heat 1 tsp. of oil in a pan, add cumin, green chillies, ginger. Saute & then add in the mashed potatoes & frozen peas. Add in the spices and salt to taste. Mix well for about 2 to 3 minutes and close off the heat. Cool filling.
  5. To make samosas, take a lemon sized ball of the dough, lay it on a flat surface & with the help of a rolling pin, roll it out into a slightly oval shape about 5 to 6 inches. (Watch video below on link)
  6. Cut this into two semi oval shapes.
  7. Now smear a little water along the straight line of the semi circle & fold this into a cone shape.
  8. Next, fill this cone with a little potato filling & then fold the edges smearing a little water along the edges.
  9. Make as many samosas as you wish with the remaining dough & filling as desired.
  10. When ready to make samosa, take oil in a wok or deep frying pan & heat over medium heat.
  11. Now, fry the samosas, a few at a time in medium hot oil for a few minutes until golden brown.
  12. Serve hot with mint chutney or ketchup or any condiment of your choice.
