Vegetable Samosas are absolutely favorite food. I could gladly live off of them forever. I have tried and tried to nail the perfect recipe but I just could never get it or how to assemble them correctly. But finally I have mastered the samosa thanks to the video that I posted below.
1 cup all-purpose flour
Water to knead dough
2 tablespoons oil
salt (to taste)
3-4 Potatoes, boiled, peeled & mashed
1/2 cup Green Peas, boiled
1-2 Green Chilies, chopped
1/2 teaspoon Ginger
1 tablespoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon Garam masala
Salt to taste
Red chili powder to taste
1/2 teaspoon amchur
Mix salt and oil, adding a little water at a time. Knead well for several times into soft dough. Cover it with moist cloth and keep aside for 15 minutes.
In an 8-inch skillet add oil potatoes, coriander, garam masala, red chili powder, amchur salt, green chills ginger and green peas; mix well.
Make small rolls of dough and roll it into a 4"-5" diameter circle. Cut it into two parts like semi-circle. Now take one semi circle and fold it like a cone. Use water while doing so.
Place a spoon of filling in the cone and seal the third side using a drop of water.
Heat oil in a 4-quart sauté pan or electric fryer on medium heat until golden.
Yields: 8 servings
