Samosas: Samosas are a popular Indian fast food made with a crispy pastry shell filled with a spicy potato and pea mixture.


  •     2 cups all-purpose flour
  •     1/2 cup ghee or vegetable oil
  •     1/2 teaspoon salt
  •     1/2 cup water
  •     1 cup boiled and mashed potatoes

  •     1 teaspoon cumin powder
  •     1 teaspoon coriander powder
  •     1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
  •     Salt to taste

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, ghee or oil, and salt. Mix well and add water gradually to form a dough. Knead the dough for a few minutes until it becomes smooth.
  2. Cover the dough and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, peas, cumin powder, coriander powder, red chili powder, and salt. Mix well.
  4. Roll out the dough into a thin sheet and cut it into circles using a cookie cutter or a lid.
  5. Place a spoonful of the potato mixture in the center of each circle and fold it into a triangle shape. Press the edges to seal.
  6. Heat oil in a deep frying pan over medium heat. Carefully place the samosas in the hot oil and fry them until they turn golden brown.
  7. Remove the samosas from the oil and place them on a paper towel to drain the excess oil.
  8. Serve hot with chutney or ketchup.
