A hot, crispy samosa paired with a delicious chutney!

In this article, I'll be sharing a recipe for tempting samosas and chutney that you can easily make at home. So, let's get started!

Ingredients for the Samosas:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon carom seeds (ajwain)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 medium-sized potatoes, boiled and mashed
  • 1/2 cup green peas
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon grated garlic
  • 1 green chili, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garam masala
  • Salt to taste
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying

Ingredients for the Chutney:

  • 1/2 cup mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup coriander leaves
  • 1 green chili
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions for the Samosas:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, salt, carom seeds, and 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Mix well.
  • Gradually add water and knead the dough until it is smooth and pliable.
  • Cover the dough with a damp cloth and set it aside for 30 minutes.
  • In a pan, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.
  • Add cumin seeds and let them splutter.
  • Add grated ginger, grated garlic, and chopped green chili. Saute for a minute.
  • Add finely chopped onions and saute until they turn translucent.
  • Add green peas, coriander powder, garam masala, and salt. Mix well.
  • Add boiled and mashed potatoes and mix until all the ingredients are combined.
  • Let the filling cool down.
  • Divide the dough into small balls and roll each ball into a thin circle.
  • Cut each circle into two halves.
  • Take one half and form a cone by bringing the two edges of the straight side together.
  • Fill the cone with the prepared filling and seal the edges by applying some water.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a deep pan.
  • Once the oil is hot, carefully drop the samosas into the oil.
  • Fry the samosas until they turn golden brown.
  • Serve hot with chutney.

Instructions for the Chutney:

  • In a blender, add mint leaves, coriander leaves, green chili, grated ginger, lemon juice, and salt.
  • Add 1/4 cup of water and blend until it forms a smooth paste.
  • Adjust the seasoning as per your taste.
  • Transfer the chutney into a serving bowl.

Tips for the Perfect Samosas:

Make sure the filling is not too dry or too wet. It should be just right to ensure that the samosas hold their shape and do not break apart while frying.

When sealing the edges of the samosas, make sure that the edges are well-pressed and sealed. This will prevent the filling from oozing out while frying.

Fry the samosas
