Being a favorite for many (including me), who can say 'NO' to a plate of samosa with some tomato ketchup on the size? Will you??

For the Dough

  • Flour - 1 cup
  • Sooji/ Rava - 1 tbsp
  • Corn flour - 1 tsp
  • Ajwain seeds - 1 tsp
  • Salt - as required
  • Water - for kneading
  • Oil -1 tsp
How to make it:

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add water and knead into a soft dough, for about 5 minutes. Apply some oil and let it stand covered for sometime.

For the Filling

  • Potatoes - 2 big, boiled and cubed
  • Onion - 1, finely chopped
  • Green chillies - 1 or 2, chopped
  • Peas - 1/4 cup, cooked
  • Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Corriander powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - as required
  • Cilantro - few, chopped
  • Oil - for frying
How to make it:

Heat oil in a pan, add cumin, onion, green chillies and fry until onion turns light brown. Add the cooked peas and fry for a while. Add red chilli powder, corriander powder and garam masala. Add potatoes and salt. Mash potatoes slightly (not all of them). Add some chopped cilantro. Mix well.

To make samosas

Make evenly sized balls out of the dough. Roll flat into a round shape. Cut into semi-circle with a Knife. Take one semi circle at a time. Apply water along the cut edge and fold into a cone. Hold it between your thumb and index finger just like holding an ice-cream cone. Add the potato filling inside the cone. Fold and seal the ends by applying little water. Deep fry in oil until golden brown. Serve hot with tomato ketchup!

For crispier samosas, keep the un-fried, filled samosas in refrigerator for at least an hour or two.
