Steps to Make the filling for aloo samosa

  • Crumble the boiled potatoes and keep it aside.
  • In a large bowl, take ½ tsp ajwain, 250 grams all-purpose flour and ¼ cup oil, salt as per taste and mix well till the flour forms breadcrumbs like texture.
  • Add water parts by parts and mix the flour to form a dough. The dough should be hard and not soft.
  • Cover the dough with a cloth and keep aside for at least 30 minutes.
  • Take a Kadhai, heat oil in it and add ½ tsp cumin seeds.
  • As soon as the cumin seeds start to crackle, add the 1 tbsp ginger paste and saute it for a minute.
  • Now add the remaining dry ingredients, 1 tsp garam masala, ¾ tsp red chili powder, ½ tsp cumin powder and saute it well.
  • Add the crumbled potatoes, some salt, and mix them well again.
  • Taste the potato filling and add some salt if required, sprinkle some chopped coriander leaves and keep it aside.

Steps to Make the Potato Samosa

  • Knead the dough that was kept aside for a minute or two.
  • Take small gold ball sized portions from the dough.
  • Using a rolling pin, flatten a dough ball in perfect oval shape. Apply some oil before flattening it.
  • Using a knife, cut the flatten dough from the center and divide it into 2 equal parts.
  • Apply water on the straight side. 
  • Now, lift the straight side and join them to make the shape of a cone. Seal the cone by pressing this straight side so that while frying, the filling doesn't come out.
  • Fill the cone with one or 1½  spoon full of potato filling. You can add filling according to the size of the cone. I made them small, so only used 1 teaspoon to fill.
  • Now, apply some water on the opposite edges which are open. Seal this edge with 1 pleat.
  • Similarly, make all the samosa before deep frying. In a Kadhai, heat oil for deep frying.
  • Keeping the flame on low, as soon as the oil is hot, slip as many samosas as you can.
  • Let it fry undisturbed for a minute, then flip them and fry this side as well for a minute.
  • Keep repeating this 1-minute process till your samosas turn golden in color.
  • Your samosa is ready to be served. Serve it hot with pudina chutney or ketchup.
  • You can also make samosa sandwiches or aloo toast using the potato filling.

Notes

  • Don’t use less oil while kneading the dough. Otherwise, your samosa won’t be crunchy after frying.
  • You can add some crumbled paneer with the potato or any other veggies you want.
  • Don’t keep the flame on medium or high while deep frying the samosa. It will not cook the samosa from inside and in turn, your samosa will not turn crispy.
  • Keep the dough hard and stiff. But don’t knead it too soft or too hard.
