How to make tasty Samosa at Home

17 Sep 2023

To make samosas, you'll need the following ingredients and follow these steps:




For the pastry:

1. 2 cups all-purpose flour

2. 1/4 cup vegetable oil

3. 1/2 teaspoon salt

4. Water for kneading


For the filling:

1. 2 cups boiled and mashed potatoes

2. 1/2 cup boiled green peas

3. 1 tablespoon oil

4. 1 teaspoon cumin seeds

5. 1/2 cup finely chopped onions

6. 1 tablespoon ginger-garlic paste

7. 1-2 green chilies, finely chopped (adjust to your spice preference)

8. 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

9. 1 teaspoon garam masala

10. 1 teaspoon ground coriander

11. Salt to taste

12. Chopped cilantro leaves for garnish




1. **Prepare the Dough:**

   - In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, and oil.

   - Gradually add water and knead until you have a smooth, firm dough.

   - Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for about 30 minutes.


2. **Make the Filling:**

   - Heat oil in a pan over medium heat.

   - Add cumin seeds and let them splutter.

   - Add chopped onions and sauté until they turn translucent.

   - Stir in ginger-garlic paste and green chilies and cook for a minute.

   - Add turmeric, garam masala, ground coriander, and salt. Mix well.

   - Add boiled mashed potatoes and green peas. Cook for a few minutes until well combined.

   - Remove from heat and let the filling cool.


3. **Assemble the Samosas:**

   - Divide the dough into equal portions and roll them into balls.

   - Roll out each ball into a thin oval or circle (about 6 inches in diameter).

   - Cut each circle in half to form two semi-circles.


4. **Fold and Fill:**

   - Take one semi-circle and fold it to form a cone shape.

   - Seal the edge with a little water to make a triangle pocket.

   - Fill the pocket with the potato-pea mixture.

   - Fold and seal the open edge, forming a triangular samosa.

   - Repeat with the remaining dough and filling.


5. **Fry or Bake:**

   - Heat oil in a deep frying pan over medium-high heat.

   - Once the oil is hot, gently slide in the samosas and fry until they turn golden brown and crispy.

   - Alternatively, you can preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and bake the samosas on a greased baking sheet for about 25-30 minutes, turning them halfway through for even cooking.


6. **Serve:**

   - Drain excess oil on paper towels if you fried them.

   - Serve samosas hot with chutney or sauce of your choice.


Enjoy your homemade samosas!
