Samosa is a great afternoon snack or as an entree and you can use the filling of your choice.

This is a popular street food in India. You can bake the samosa instead of frying. The amount of water added to make dough depends on the quality of the flour.

Preparation Time: 40 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 8 samosas

For the dough pastry
1/2 cup plain flour
1.5 tbsp ghee or oil
1/4 cup lukewarm water
1/4 tsp salt

For the filling
2 potatoes
1/2 cup green peas cooked
1/2 cup onion chopped
1/4 cup capsicum chopped
1/2 tsp black pepper powder
2 cloves
1/8 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp fennel seed
1 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

  • For the pastry dough, mix the flour, salt, ghee/oil and water. Add water a little at a time and knead to a firm dough. (You don't have to use exactly 1/4 cup water). Cover the dough and let it sit for 15 minutes.

  • Prepare the filling - Peel and cook the potatoes. Mash the cooked potatoes with a fork and set aside.

  • Grind the cloves and mix with cinnamon powder. This is the spice mix used for flavouring.

  • Now prepare the filling. Heat oil in a pan. Crackle the fennel seed. Saute the onion and capsicum until soft. Then add the spice mix and black pepper powder.

  • Add the mashed potato and cooked green peas. Stir and cook for 3-4 minutes.

  • Divide the dough into 8 balls. With a rolling pin, roll each ball into 6-inch diameter pastry circles.

  • Place a spoon of the vegetable filling in the center of the rolled pastry.

  • Fold together all the edges and seal and press to the center. You can make any shape you want.

  • Heat oil in a pan. Deep-fry the stuffed pastry in hot oil until both sides are golden brown. Remove from oil and place in a tissue paper to remove excess oil.

  • Serve with your favourite sauce.
