Easy Samosa Recipe Preparation:
✅ Start by preparing the dough. Take 2 cup maida, add ½ tablespoon salt.
✅ Add ½ tablespoon carom seeds; crush it with your hands.
👉 Note: Carom seeds will give a nice flavour.
✅ Add 4 tablespoon oil and mix well.
👉 Note: always check the proportionate of maida and oil. If you are using 1 cup maida, then add 2 tablespoon oil. This proportion is very important to make crispy samosa.
✅ Use warm water in winter to prepare the dough. In summers, you can use normal water. Knead the stiff and hard dough.
👉 Note: knead a bit hard dough; don’t knead the soft dough as you prepare for chapatti.
✅ Use minimum water to prepare the dough, keep it aside for 20 – 30 minutes, so that it may absorb all the water.
👉 Note: you can keep it aside for 2-3 hours as well. The more you keep it, the more it will become crispy.
✅ Now prepare the stuffing for samosa.
✅ Take a pan, add 1 tablespoon oil and heat it. Add 2-3 green chillies and ginger and roast it.
✅ Now add peas, add 1 tablespoon water, cover the pan and wait till the peas get tender.
✅ Add potatoes, don’t use the grater to crush the potatoes, crush the potatoes with your hand, and put it in the pan.
👉 Note: If you grate the potato in grater the stuffing will not become good.
✅ Add ¾ tablespoon salt, 1 tablespoon coriander powder, ½ tablespoon garam masala, ½ tablespoon cumin powder, ½ tablespoon red chilli powder, ¼ tablespoon amchur powder. Mix all the ingredients well.
✅ Stir it and roast it well.
✅ Roast till all the water evaporates.
👉 Note: if you leave the moisture in stuffing, the samosa will become soggy.
- Add coriander leaves and allow it to cool.
- Now the dough is set, divide the dough in a small portion.
- Using the chapatti roller, roll it in an oval shape.
👉 Note: Do not roll much thick or thin. Roll it evenly.
✅ Divide it into 2 equal parts. Apply some water (just like you apply glue to the paper) to the line from where you divided the roll.
👉 Note: we apply water so that surface can stick and the samosa will not open while frying
✅ Give it a cone shape. And press both the ends using your fingers and thumb till the end.
- Add stuffing, keep some space, and do not fill it completely.
- Apply water to both the dead ends.
- Twist a bit and make a plate to backside of the samosa and now paste both the sides together.
- Similarly assemble all the samosa.
- Keep aside all the assembled samosa for about 2 hours, so that they can further get dry.
- Now take a pan, and the oil should be medium hot.
👉 Note: we do not use very hot oil to fry the samosa, use medium-hot oil to fry.
✅ Keep the flame low and put the samosa in the pan.
✅ Keep it in the same position for about 5 minutes; do not stir it at least for 5 minutes otherwise, the samosa may open.
- Now stir it, and fry till they get brown.
- If you want to fry another batch of samosa, turn off the gas, and let the oil cool.
- After that keep the stove at low flame repeat the process.
- Samosa is ready to serve.
Serve it with sweet or green chutney.
