How to Make Quick and Easy Samosa

  • Add garam masala, pepper, amchur and jeera powder, mix well and again cover for 5-8 minutes.
  • Add cashew nuts and resins in the end and keep on flame for 3-5 minutes.
  • Keep aside to cool.
  • Roll small balls of the dough like chapati.
  • Cut each in two parts (like semi-circle), then take one semi circle and fold it in the shape of a cone. Use water while doing so.
  • Stuff the mixture of potatoes, peas and spices in that cone and seal it by taking a drop of water on your finger.
  • Heat oil and fry.
  • Serve hot with tamarind chutney or green chutney.
