Ingredients:

• 260 grams of all-purpose flour 80 grams of butter

• salt to taste

• 1/2 cup water

• 1 tablespoon carom seeds

For Stuffing

• 2-3 tablespoon of vegetable oil

• 1 tablespoon cumin seeds

• 2 tablespoons coriander seeds

• finely chopped green chili

• 50 grams of peanuts 50 grams of green peas 50 grams of chopped cottage cheese or paneer

• 1 tablespoon of chili flakes

• Finely chopped coriander leaves

• salt to taste

• 4 medium-sized boil potatoes

• 1 tablespoon mango powder A pinch of Asafoetida or heeng powder

Steps

  • In a bowl, mix all-purpose flour with half a cup of water, a pinch of salt and ajwain seeds. Ensure that your dough is not soft but slightly stiff. Once you have kneaded your dough, keep it aside. Just take a teaspoon of maida and a half a tablespoon of water and make a paste that will later help you seal the samosa cones. *It is time to make the filling. On medium heat, place your pan and heat a tablespoon of oil and to it add thing powder and cumin seeds. Once the cumin seeds begin to crackle, add the four boiled potatoes in a mashed form, finely chopped green chili, all the spices mentioned and dry fruits. Add a tablespoon more of oil and stir it occasionally for 15 minutes until the filling has soaked in all the spices and its slightly golden. Then, add finely chopped paneer cubes and stir it for a good five minutes on low heat.

  • It is time to make small balls with the kneaded dough. Make little balls and then using a rolling pin, flatten them into the size of puris. Then with a knife, cut it into two semicircles of equal size.

  • Now, take each semicircle and fold it so that it looks triangular and apply some maida paste to seal the deal. Can you see the sides of the semicircle overlapping? If yes, you are doing it right!

  • Next, fill the cone with the filling you just made and seal the bottom circular edge by putting the maida paste lightly and pressing with your fingertips.

  • Now, in a frying pan, deep fry the samosas until they are crispy and golden-brown in color.

Serve it with coriander chutney, mustard or tamarind chutney!  What are you snacking on this evening?
