Samosa is eaten as a starter or as a snack. This is a triangular shaped stuffed pastry which is generally fried or nowadays even baked for the benefit of weight watchers. The filling (veg/non veg) can be of your choice whereas the filling that's followed from many years is boiled potatoes and peas along with some spices. Veg Samosa + Sweet Chutney and Green Chutney combo shared with a group of friends for an evening Chai will make an attractive menu...

• Next add Green Peas and cook until tender.

• Then add Chopped Potatoes and stir fry for 3-4 min. Put the Garam Masala and Amchur Powder and mix well. Add Salt as per your taste and mix well again.

• Let this filling cool to room temperature.

Making of Samosa:

• Firstly make a paste with 2 spoons of Water and 1 Spoon of All Purpose Flour and keep aside.

• Then using the prepared dough, take a lemon sized dough and roll it into 6 inch diameter circle and cut the circle in half.

• Spread little amount of prepared flour paste along the edge of one semicircle. Now pick this semicircle in your hands and fold it into a cone shape.

• Fill this cone with approximately 3 tbsps of filling and close the cone into a triangle shape and pinch it properly so that it is completely sealed.

• Repeat the same steps to make rest of the Samosas.

• Heat oil in a frying pan, place few samosas at a time and deep fry until golden brown in colour on a medium heat.

Vegetable Samosas are ready to hit the table with chutney!

Tip: If you feel that making the pastry is a cumbersome procedure you could as well use filo pastry sheet for frying and puff pastry sheet if you are baking the samosas.
