Mattar Paneer Samosa


For filling-

1 cup crumbled paneer
1/2 cup cooked peas
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
Finely chopped coriander leaves
Few raisins

For outer cover

2 cups all purpose flour/maida
Salt to taste
Bit of ajwain/thymol seeds
2 tsp oil

Oil to fry

Mix all the ingredients for outer cover and use water to make a stiff dough. Keep covered under a wet cloth for atleast 1/2 hour.

Mix all the ingredients for the stuffing and keep ready.

Divide the dough into medium sized balls and roll out one of them. Cut in the center to get two pieces. Make cones from the pieces using few drops of water to seal the corners. Stuff the paneer filling and press the corners to seal the samosa. Repeat for rest of the dough and stuffing.

Heat oil and deep fry the samosa on medium flame till golden brown and crisp. Drain the excess oil on a tissue paper and serve hot with sweet chutney or sauce.
