King Samosas

I used to think making of this king samosas is a big thing and very tedious work. But when I saw this recipe in TV inspired me to do this samosas at home. It was simple and easy. 1 ½ cup of Maida gives us nearly 12 to 13 samosas. We can do it at home and we can make a healthier filling why to get it from outside. It was easy and very tasty too. I made this for ifthar today and I felt really happy when I made it myself.  Have a look and hope u all will surely like it.


Ingredients
Maida or all purpose flour  1 ½  cup
Butter or Dalda 1 tbsp
Cooking soda 1tsp
salt to taste
water to knead the dough

For the filling
Potatoes   2 no (boiled and diced)
Green chilies   2 to 3  (finely chopped) 
Coriander leaves chopped  4tbsp
ginger garlic paste  1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil 1 tbsp 

Mix in a Separate bowl with little water
Turmeric powder  1 tsp
Coriander powder   2tsp
Red chilly powder  1tsp (according to taste)
Chat masala 1tsp (according to tase)
Cashew nuts  (finely chopped ) 2 tbsp
Cumin seeds  1/2 tsp
lime juice of 1/2 lime

Oil for deep frying

Method:
For the dough
Take the maida, salt Seive well to mix evenly  and  take butter and cooking soda in a bowl nicely mix well till u get a nice froth . now add the flour and crumble well u will find a crunchy effect in it..
 Start adding water little by little and knead properly .Make a stiff dough and let it rest for 15 to 20 min.

Inner filling :

cashews and turmeric powder mix it well and  cook for few min.The add the mixed masala which we mixed with some water and kept ready.Now add the diced potatoes, salt and coriander leaves.sprinkle the lime juice over it. we  can make any stuffing of our choice with many variations.

To Make Samosa
Make rolls of the dough depending on the size of samsosa we want. Roll the dough in a oval shape. Cut that  oval shape into half. Take that half apply water on edges ,take one end  bend it in canter and taking other end overlap it on the first edge making it a triangle or cone. Fill the cone with the stuffing and seal the edges of Samosa nicely (we will get the perfect shape.we can use the  spring roll sheet  also. Now fry the samosas in the oil till they turn golden brown.  Enjoy the samosas with green chutney  or tomato sauce.
