For the samosa stuffing:

Shelled green peas cup
Oil 2 tbsp
Cumin seeds 1 tsp
Green chillies chopped fine 2
Finely chopped ginger 1 tsp
Potatoes peeled and cubed 2 big
Red chilli powder 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Dry mango powder(amchoor)
or Lemon juice 1 tsp
Garam masala 1/2 tsp
Chopped coriander leaves 2 tbsp

For the samosa pastry shell:

Plain flour (maida) 1 cup
Baking soda 1/2 tsp
Baking powder 1/2 tsp
Ajwain(optional) 1/2 tsp
Ghee (clarified butter) 3 tbsp
Salt to taste
Water as required for kneading
Oil to deep fry


1.Cook the peas in boiling salted water for about 10 minute(s) or till soft. Refresh in cold water and drain well.
2.Heat the oil in a pan. Toss in the cumin seeds and let them crackle. 3.Add the green chillies and ginger. Fry briefly. Add the potato cubes and mix well. Add the red chilli powder, salt, dry mango powder and garam masala powder.
4.Toss well. Sprinkle some water. Cover and cook on low-medium heat for about 10 minutes or till the potatoes are cooked.
5. Mix in the cooked green peas and put off the heat. Let cool. Mix in the coriander leaves.
6.To make the samosa pastry shell, sieve together the plain flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix in the carom seeds and ghee / oil. Add water little by little whilst mixing with fingers to make a stiff dough, the consistency of a shortcrust pastry.
7.Keep covered with a damp cloth for about 15 minutes.
8.Divide the dough into 16 equal balls. Apply a little dry flour to each ball when rolling into a circle of 4" diameter. Cut each circle into two and lightly dampen the edges of each semicircle with water. Shape each semicircle onto a cone by pressing the cut edges together. Place a spoonful of the potato-pea filling into the cone and seal the edges well (apply some water on the edges if they do not seal well). Repeat this procedure with the rest of the balls.
9.Deep fry in medium-hot oil in batches on medium flame till crisp and golden brown. Remove onto a paper towel.

Serve hot with: Green Chutney (Hari Chutney) / Tomato ketchup.
