Samosa - Evening Snack

Welcome to the 18th edition of blogging marathon. I have chosen Kids Friendly Snacks for the first week and the first dish I am going to serve you is Samosa. Who only does not like this deep fried delicacy, right from Bengal till Kanyakumari, you can see this samosa in the tea stalls, cafe' s , coffee shops, chat shops, restaurants etc.. This is a very popular snack in every household, it is either store bought or home made. I made this for my nieces and they simply loved it. 


Maida - 3 cups
Oil - for deep fry 
Ajwain - a pinch
Salt to taste

For the filling

Potato - 3 big 
Jeera - 1 tbsp
Green Peas - 1 cup
Onion - 1 cup sliced
Red Chili powder - 2 tbsp
Garam Masala powder - 1 tsp
Salt to taste

Method :

To prepare the filling

Boil and mash the potatoes
Boil the green peas and keep aside
Heat oil in a wok and add the Jeera
When the Jeera sputters add the sliced onions
Saute for a minute till it is translucent
Now add the mashed potato and boiled green peas
Add the red chili powder, salt and mix well.
Let this mixture cool
You can add coriander and mint leaves for flavoring

To prepare samosa

Make a dough with the Maida, salt and oil. 
Divide the dough into small balls

Keep the filling ready for the samosa

Roll out the dough into thin chapatis

Cut the whole circle into two halves

Make a conical shape out of one half and fill it with the potato curry

Seal the samosa well using a little water.

Samosa is ready to be deep fried. Prepare the whole batch of samosas and keep it ready for deep fry

Meanwhile heat oil in a wide wok and deep fry the prepared samosas in them

Samosa is ready to be devoured with pudhina chutney

This hot samosa is being served at Blogging Marathon#18 and Kid's Delight-Evening snack hosted by Vardhini and started by Srivalli

Kamalka what a wonderful step by step post..but if I were u I wud add some oil to the dough ..this will give the crust more crunchiness and a better texture., though they look very tempting.
