Samosa- An all time favourite snack


For the dough-

1 cup Maida
Salt to taste
3 tsp oil
1/2 tsp thymol seeds

For the filling-

4 big boiled potatoes
1/2 cup boiled peas
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
1/2 tsp chat masala powder
1/2 tsp cumin seeds powder
1/2 tsp coriander seeds powder
Salt to taste
Few cashews
1/4 tsp lime juice
Finely chopped coriander leaves
1/2 tsp ginger paste
1/2 tsp cumin seeds

Add salt, thymol seeds and oil to the maida and mix well. Add very little water to get a stiff dough and keep it covered for 15 to 20 minutes.

Heat oil, add cumin seeds, dry masala powders, cashews, ginger paste, salt, potatoes and peas. Mix well and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add finely chopped coriander leaves and lime juice.

Roll out the dough into medium sized chapatis and cut it into half. Apply little water on the sides and fold it into cone shape. Fill in the potato peas mixture and close the other ends as well. Ensure that it is closed well on all sides, else the filling will come out. Repeat for the rest of the dough.

Heat oil on a low flame and fry these samosas. When cooked on a low flame, the samosa get cooked well and also crispy.

Serve with green chutney or sweet chutney or tomato sauce.
