Do not overheat the oil, since this will cook only the outer covering and the inner layer will remain uncooked even if the samosa has turned dark brown on the outside.
you can change the toppings & name the samosas accordingly. for example: if you put peas in it ;it will be called peas samosa, same way if keema( minced meat) is added to it it is keema samosas.


serve with green chutney, tamarind chutney or tomato ketchup.

Ingredients

4 large potatoes, boiled and mashed
1/2 cup boiled and drained green peas
1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
1 tsp dried mango powder (amchur)
1 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp fennel seeds (saunf) powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
1 tbsp chopped cashewnuts (kaju)
1 tbsp ghee (clarified butter) or oil for cooking
salt to taste
3 cups plain flour (maida)
1/2 cup plain flour (maida), for rolling out
1 tbsp heated ghee ( clarified butter) or oil to add to the maida ( all purpose flour) dough
Oil for deep frying the samosas
Method

  1. Heat the ghee(clarified butter) for the stuffing and add the cumin seeds and cashewnuts.
  2. When the seeds splutter add the dry powders and fry for 10 seconds.
  3. Add the mashed potatoes and green peas, salt and mix well.
  4. Cook on a low flame for about 10 minutes. keep it aside.
  5. Prepare the cover for the samosa by combining the maida (all purpose flour, plain flour), hot ghee(clarified butter)/ oil and salt .
  6. Add enough water and knead the dough. set aside for about 10 minutes.
  7. Divide the dough into round portions. take each portion and coat it with some maida (all purpose flour, plain flour) so that it does not stick to your hands.
  8. Roll it into a not too thin perfect round. with a pizza cutter, make 2 semi circles of that round.
  9. Take one half circle. dip your index finger into the cold water and apply it to the straight edge of the semi circle. now hold the semicircle in your hand.
  10. Fold the straight edge , bringing together the watered edges. seal the watered edges. you will now have a small triangular maida (all purpose flour, plain flour) pocket.

  12. Deep fry in oil till golden brown and serve hot.
