Mini Samosas ...!!!

While checking out some Sanjeev Kapoor recipes, I came across Samosas!!! Wow, I thought why not try??
So here it is….. :)
Recipe serves 3 to 4

For cover
2 cups plain flour (Maida)
2 tbspn. Warm oil
Water to knead to dough

For Filling

4 potatoes medium size, boiled, peeled & mashed
3 green chillies finely chopped
1 tsp. ginger crushed
1 tsp. Garlic crushed
1 tbspn. Coriander seeds
2 tbspn. Fresh finely chopped coriander
½ lemon juice extracted
½ tsp. turmeric powder
1 tsp. chilly powder
1 tsp. sugar
Salt to taste
Oil to deep fry

Method for Dough

Take the flour; add oil, salt and little water. Mix well till crumbly. Add more water little by little kneading it into soft pliable dough. Cover it with wet cloth for 15 to 20 minutes. Beat dough on surface & knead again. Recover.

Method for filling
Heat 3 tbspn. Of oil, add ginger, garlic, green chillies, and coriander seeds, stir fry for a minute, add fresh coriander leaves, lemon juice, turmeric powder, garam masala, chilly powder. Stir fry for 2 minutes. Add potatoes. Further stir fry for 2 minutes. Cool, keep aside.

To proceed
Make a thin 5” dia round with the dough. Cut in 2 halves. Run a moist hand around the diameter. Join & press together to make a cone.
Place a tbspn. Of filling inside the cone, seal the third side as above.
Put in hot oil, fry on low – medium flame. Don’t fry on high flame, otherwise the Samosas will become soggy & oily.
Drain on kitchen paper. Serve hot with tamarind chutney or tomato ketchup.
