Vegetable Samosa

A very spicy and tasty mouthwatering snack. I used to have samosa's and kachori's a lot when I was in India. Here also we do get samosa's nowadays in some restaurants. Even frozen samosas are available nowadays. But the taste or fun of eating samosa that we get back in India in the small road side shops is not there.. But any ways I gave a try to this last weekend.. It came out quite good...

For the pastry
1 cup plain flour (maida)
1 tbsp semolina (optional)
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp oil
1/4 cup warm water
For the vegetable
1 cup green peas
2 big potatoes
2 green chillies
1 1/2 tsp dry mango powder (amchoor)
1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp coriander powder
1 1/2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp red chilli powder
2 tsp oil
salt to taste

For the pastry
1. Mix all the ingredients of the pastry and make a stif dough and keep in a wet muslin cloth for 1/2 an hour.
2. Then make round balls of the dough and roll them into chappatis. Cut the chappati in half and then make the edges wet and stick to make a cone shape.
For the Filling
1. Put oil in a vessel. When it is hot add cumin seeds.
2. When the cumin seeds crackle add peas and fry for 2-3 min. Then add garam masala, coriander powder, green chillies finely chopped and mix.
3. Then add boiled and cubed potatoes and salt and amchoor powder. Check the taste of the vege if you want more spicy then add red chilli powder.
4. Remove from pan and put the filling in a plate to cool.
Final stage
1. Heat oil in a deep frying pan.
2. In the cones made from the dough put the filling and close the samosa cones nicely.
3. Make all the cones similarly and then deep fry till golden brown.
