Step By Step Method

  • STEP 1 To begin with, in order to prepare the stuffing for samosa, place a pan on medium flame and pour oil. Once heated, put cumin seeds and once the seeds start changing color, immediately add garlic, ginger and green chili paste and salt according to your taste. STEP 2 Then, combine dry mango powder, coriander powder, coriander leaves, garam masala along with turmeric and red chili powder. Keep stirring the mixture the whole while. Next, add boiled potato and stir yet again. With the help of the back of a spoon, mash the entire mixture altogether. STEP 3 Now to prepare the dough, take a large bowl and combine all-purpose flour along with cumin seeds, salt and black pepper according to your taste. Then, add ghee and start kneading. Make sure the dough turns out to be somewhat firm in its texture. Cover the dough with a muslin cloth and keep aside for about half an hour. STEP 4 Once done, roll out few small-sized balls from the dough. Flatten them further with the help of your palms and then with a rolling pin. Give them a round shape and cut it in half. Now dipping your hands in water, fold the edges of the semi-circle in order to give it a cone shape. STEP 5 Take the filling and stuff the prepared mixture in it. Seal the ends properly by pressing the edges lightly with your fingers. Then, heat oil in a pan and deep fry the samosas until they turn golden brown and crispy enough. Serve with any dip of your choice. Enjoy it as a tea-time snack.
