A simple and delicious Indian snack, now famous worldwide.


1 cups all purpose flour

2 tbs Semolina flour ( if available )

2-3 boiled potatoes

5 tbs Olive oil

2  chopped onions

2 tbs minced fresh ginger

2 tbs minced garlic

3-4 green chilly

1 tbs turmeric powder

1 tbs coriander seeds

1/4 tbs Cinnamon powder

1/2 tbs coriander powder

1/4 tbs ground pepper ( if available )

1/2 Cup green peas

1/2 tbs chopped fresh cilantro leaves ( or coriander leaves )

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

2 tbs salt


Mix together the flour, 2 tbs oil and 1/2 tbs salt.

Add little water and knead the mixture for 5-8 min or till it turns into soft dough. Dough has to be kneaded well; otherwise, the samosas will not come out as crisp. Cover with a moist cloth and set aside for 30 minutes.


Heat 3 tbsp oil in a pan.

Add ginger, garlic, green chilies and coriander seeds.

Stir fry for 1-2 minute, add onions and saute till light brown. Add cilantro (fresh coriander), lemon juice, turmeric, cinnamon powder, coriander powder, chilly, ground pepper and 2 tbs salt, and fry for 2 min.

Add mildly mashed boiled potatoes. Stir fry for another 5 minutes, and set aside.

Making shapes of Samosa

Divide dough into 10 equal portions ( or depending upon the size of samosa we wish to prepare), and roll them into small balls.

Roll each ball into into a thin circle, about 6-inches in diameter. Cut each circle in half (2 semi-circles).

Put 2 teaspoons of filling in the center of each semi-circle. Brush the edges of semicircle with water and fold the dough over the filling. Press the edges together to seal.

Repeat the same process with remaining ingredients.


There are two ways to make samosa

1) Fried Samosa

In a pan preheat the oil on medium heat.

Deep fry the samosa till they turn light brown. Avoid cooking at high heat as the samosa crust will be too soft and not crispy.

2) Baked Samosa

Preheat the oven to 180 C. Place the samosas on a baking tray and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, turning them halfway through cooking until they turn light brown.
