Indian Samosa Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsps ghee (clarified butter)
  • Salt to taste
  • 5 large potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed roughly
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp raw mango powder (aamchoor)
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • Salt to taste
  • Vegetable/ canola/sunflower cooking oil for deep frying

Preparation:

  • Mix the flour with the ghee and salt to taste. Add a little water at a time to it, to make a firm, smooth dough. Keep aside.
  • In a pan, heat 2 tbsps of oil and add the cumin seeds to it. When they stop spluttering, add the coriander, tumeric, red chilli, raw mango and garam masala powders. Fry for just a few seconds.
  • Add the potato to this spice mixture and mix well. Season with salt.
  • Simmer and cook for 7-10 minutes. Keep aside.
  • Divide the dough you made earlier in to golf ball-sized portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each ball out into a circle roughly 7-8″ in diameter (and approximately 1/6″ thick).
  • Cut each circle into 2 with a sharp knife.
  • Take one semi-circle and lightly wet its straight edge with water. Fold it into a cone, joining this wet edge and pressing gently to seal well.
  • Fill this cone 3/4 full with the potato filling made earlier. You can put any semi-dry filling you desire into Samosas – minced meat, spinach, etc.
  • Lightly wet the open edges of the cone and press together to seal well. Use all the dough up in a similiar manner.
  • Deep fry the Samosas till golden. Drain on paper towels.
  • Serve hot with Tamarind Chutney and Mint-Coriander Chutney.
