Samosas

Samosa Is A Traditional Chat Menu Item In India. It is perfect combination for evening chai time. So, I Was Tempted To Give A Try When I Started To Cook. I Used 3:1 Ratio Of Wheat Flour And Maida. Whole Wheat Flour can also be Completely used For preparing samosas. the whole process is lengthy but we can split the process by making Samosa Sheets previous day and Refrigerate it To Save Cook time

Ingredients:

Preparation Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 30 mins

For Outer Layering:

  • green chili -1 finely chopped
  • coriander leaves
  • Oil as required

Method:

For dough preparation:

  • take a bowl, add flour, ajwain seeds and salt
  • prepare dough by adding water partly
  • once dough is formed, apply oil on top and cover it with damp cloth

For Stuffing:

  • in a pan, add oil. Once hot, add cumin seeds and allow it to splutter

  • spread it out into round/oval shape using chapathi rolling pin
  • cut into half. repeat the process for all the remaining dough
  • heat a dosa tawa, once hot, place our prepared sheets for 10 seconds each side. this step is to provide sturdy outer layer for samosa ( we can store many sheets in Refrigerator for about a week and use later)
  • apply maida paste (maida mixed with water) on sides, cover it partly
  • place our samosa stuffing inside it and close the edges using maida paste
  • repeat the procedure for all the samosas
  • heat a pan, add oil for deep frying. once hot, place samosa carefully. Normally, it will take 5-7 minutes to get fried
  • flip over the other side once bottom part turns golden brown
