Samosa



Samosa !!! Samosa is everyone's favorite. Yesterday only I made these delicious samosas and in my family everyone loved it.  Earlier I don't use to add garlic in potato filling but when I came to know that my Father-in law likes garlic flavor in the filling so I thought to give it a try. This time I added garlic and I also loved that test. It's depends on your choice to select filling according to your taste, there is no hard and fast rule..



RECIPE:

Cooking time: 20-25 mins
Preparation Time: 20-25 mins

Ingredients:

For Dough:
  • All purpose flour/maida: 1& 1/2 cup
  • Salt to taste

  • Divide potato mixture into equal size ball.





  • Roll out the ball into thin puri and divide into 2 parts by cutting through center.
  • Now take a semi-circle piece, and make a fold in the shape of a triangle. Seal along the fold and place a ball of the stuffing inside. Wet your finger and run it along the edges of the dough with water and seal to enclose the stuffing.
  • Press the ends firmly so that the filling does not come out during the deep frying process.
  • Heat sufficient oil in pan/kadai.( Heat the oil till hot but not piping hot.)
