  • to taste Salt
  • 1 tsp Red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp Red chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp coriander powder


Samosa pastry

  • In a large bowl, place the flour, salt and ghee, mix thoroughly with your fingers until the ghee is well dispersed in the flour and resembles a crumb
  • Slowly start incorporating water
    Please note this dough is made with minimum water, so the less you add the better the dough is, but it is also hard to knead the dough when there is less water
  • Knead the dough until it comes together. Cover and let it rest covered with a damp cloth for 40 minutes

Samosa filling

  • While the dough is resting, make the filling. Heat a medium-size pan on low heat
  • Add ghee, onion, garlic, ginger, chilli and all the spices mentioned in the filling recipe and fry it well until fragrant
  • Once well-toasted add the cooked potato and mash it with the spoon
  • Finally, switch off the fire and add the peas, lemon juice and fresh coriander leaves, mix well
  • Leave the mixture aside to cool down

Shaping samosas

  • Shape the dough into a log shape and cut into 6 equal pieces, taking each piece flatten the dough with a rolling pin until it resembles like a circle
    leave the rest of the dough under the damp cloth to avoid it from drying out
  • Cut the circular-shaped dough right in the middle,
    Take one part and apply water on the straight edge/side.
    Now bring the two ends of the straight edge together and pinch them to form a cone. 
  • Fill the cone with 1 tablespoon of the mixture, then apply water to the open side of the dough and pinch the end so the cone is closed
    ( Refer to the video)
    keep the dough under a moist cloth to avoid it from drying out
  • Once all samosas are made, heat a pot of oil on medium heat, once the oil is hot fry the samosas for 3-5 minutes, until it is golden brown and crispy
  • Drain the samosas on a paper towel and enjoy them hot with a nice cup of tea
