Traditionally, samosas are served with chutney or chole, but this one which is a personal favourite of mine, is a bit different. I have experimented serving them with a coconut kadhi and to add some crunch to the dish, I have added chopped spring onions. This chaat is a meal in itself! The coconut kadhi uses coconut milk which is the liquid extracted with water from the coconut flesh. Coconut milk are now available in tetra packs at grocery stores, so you need not go through the effort of extracting it!
- Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and knead into a firm dough using water. Knead well.
- Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and roll each portion into 125 mm. x 50 mm. (5" x 2") oval. Keep aside.
- Heat the oil in a pan and add the cumin seeds. When they crackle, add the asafoetida and ginger-green chilli paste.
- Sauté for 1 minute and add the potato, green peas, capsicum, amchur, coriander-cumin seed powder, garam masala and salt.
- Mix well and mash lightly.
- Remove from the fire, cool, divide into 12 equal portions and keep aside.
- Divide each samosa covering oval into 2 halves.
- Make a cone from each part and stuff with the filling.
- Seal the edges carefully usign a little water. Repeat with the remaining oval halves and filling to make 11 more samosas.

- When the curry leaves splutter, add the ginger and red chilli and stir for a few seconds.
