 Ingredients List

  • 1 c All purpose flour
  • 1/2 c Lukewarm water
  • 5 ts Vegetable oil
  • 1 pn Salt


4 To 5 medium size potatoes
1/2 bn Or 6 to 7 stems coriander
-(cilantro) leaves
1 ts Cumin seed
1/2 ts Red chili powder (optional)
1 ts Black pepper
1 c Frozen peas
Salt to taste
2 ts Vegetable oil

Making Dough: Add pinch of salt and oil to the flour, and mix it well. Add
water slowly to flour and knead well to make a soft dough.

Making Filling: Boil potatoes. When tender, peel and cut into small
pieces. Boil peas and set aside. Pluck cilantro leaves, wash, chop and set
aside. In skillet, heat oil. Add cumin seed followed by potatoes and peas.
Add salt and pepper. Mix well and let simmer for 5 minutes. Let cool and
add coriander (cilantro) leaves.

Making Samosas: Take a ball of dough and roll it round, flat and very thin
like a tortilla. Cut in half. Bring the two ends of the straight end
together in the form of a cone, and seal the end with water. Put about 1
teaspoon of filling in the cone pocket and seal the top again with water.
Deep fry samosas in oil at medium heat until brown. Serve with chutney or
ketchup. (You can use egg roll skins or flour tortillas instead of making
dough and use the same filling. Make into any shape you want.) Makes 14 to
16 samosas.
