For the stuffing

  1. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan and add the cumin seeds.
  2. When the seeds crackle, add the asafoetida and ginger-green chilli paste and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
  3. Add the potatoes and green peas, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes. Mash lightly using the back of the spoon.
  4. Add the garam masala, dry mango powder, coriander seeds and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring continuously.
  5. Add the coriander, mix well and cook on a medium flame for another 1 minute, while stirring continuously.
  6. Divide the stuffing into 4 equal portions and keep aside.

How to proceed

  1. Knead the dough well till smooth and elastic and divide the dough into 2 equal portions.
  2. Roll out a portion of the dough into 150 mm. X 75 mm. (6" x 3") diameter oval.
  3. Cut the oval horizontally into 2 equal portions using a knife.
  4. Take a portion and join the edges to make a cone.
  5. Stuff the cone with a portion of the stuffing and apply little water on the edges to seal it.
  6. Repeat with the remaining dough and stuffing to make 3 more samosas.
  7. Heat the oil in a kadhai and deep-fry the samosas on a medium flame till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides. Drain on absorbent paper.
  8. Serve hot with green chutney.
