How to make it

  • Place the flour and salt in food processor and process for a few seconds.
  • Add shortening and process until fat is well distributed through the flour.
  • Add the water through the feed tube with the motor running until a ball of dough forms on blades.
  • Take out the dough and gather it into a smooth ball.
  • Coat the ball with a little oil and place it in a bowl.
  • Cover it with a moist towel or plastic wrap and let it rest for 1/2 hour.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan.
  • Add coriander and cumin seeds and fry until fragrant, about 15 seconds.
  • Add onions and ginger and fry for 4-5 minutes.
  • Add potatoes and peas and stir rapidly for about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Add remaining filling ingredients, mix well, and set aside.
  • Knead the dough again for a minute and divide into 2 equal portions.
  • With your hands roll each into a 1/2 inch thick rope and and cut into 8 equal parts.
  • Roll each part into a smooth ball.
  • Roll each ball flat into a 6 inch circle, and cut in half. Each half will make one samosa.
  • Form a cone with the semicircle of dough, sealing with water.
  • Place about a tablespoon of filling in the cone, then pinch the opening shut, pressing tightly and sealing with water.
  • Continue with the rest of the dough and filling.
  • Heat peanut or corn oil to 350 in a heavy pan or deep fryer.
  • Drop in 8-10 samosas and cook until light brown, about 12 minutes.
  • Remove and drain on paper towels.
  • Continue with the remaining samosas.

    This sounds awesome, I have tried other recipes and in a pinch used egg roll wrappers, like when we were camping. I will definately try this one. Great post.
