3 cups All purpose flour
500ml oil
required salt
For filling
1. In a broader vessel add chopped
onion,Poah,cumin powder,chilli
powder,salt .Mix them thoroughly
and allow it to rest for 15
minutes.In this preparation, I did
not fry the onions because the
water discharged from it will be
absorbed by Poah.
For the pastry cover
Add a tablespoon of oil to 3 cups
of all purpose flour, and mix it
thoroughly with flour in such a way
that it must form a lump when you
press it with your palm.Now add
water little by little to get a stiff
dough.Let it rest for 20 minutes.
Steps to make samosas
Knead the dough for 5 minutes
before dividing it into balls,until it
becomes soft and smooth.
Make equal balls of lemon size
from the dough.
With the help of roller pin make
thin breads of 1mm thickness.
Cut in the middle,now you will
have two semicircular halves.
Stuff the samosa cover with filling
as it is shown in the photos. You
have to fry them immediately
otherwise the edges will split or
you can use a paste made by
mixing a tablespoon of cornflour in
little water to bind the edges.

In a deep frying pan add 500ml of oil,and fry the prepared samosas in a
medium flame till it becomes golden brown in color and edges become
crisp.Remove them from pan in a serving plate and serve it with sauce.
You can replace Poah with carrot gratings or any vegetable,but fry it for few
minutes before use along with chopped onions.
If the samosas are not crispy, fry them in two stages.Fry them to 70% in the
first stage and after a interval of 10 to 15 minutes fry them again to golden
brown in the next stage.
