Now to prepare the dough, take a dough kneading plate and combine all-purpose flour along with carom seeds and salt. Mix and then, add ghee and start kneading using a little water. Ensure that you add water gradually and make a firm dough. A soft dough will not make your samosas crispy. Cover the dough with a muslin cloth and keep aside for about half an hour.
Step 4 / 5
Roll The Dough In Small Puris And Cut Into Half
Once done, roll out few small-sized balls from the dough. Flatten them further with the help of your palms and then with a rolling pin. Give them a round shape and cut it in half. Now dip your hands in water, fold the edges of the semi-circle in order to give it a cone shape.
Step 5 / 5
Fill The Semi-Circle With Potato Filling And Deep Fry
Take the filling and stuff the prepared mixture in it. Seal the ends properly by pressing the edges lightly with your fingers. Then, heat oil in a pan and deep fry the samosas until they turn golden brown and crispy enough. Serve with tomato ketchup and green chutney. Enjoy it as a tea-time snack.
To make Samosas cripsy, make sure you knead a tight or stiff dough as the soft dough will not yield best results.
Before kneading the dough, keep it in mind that you do not need to overwork on it and mix the oil with flour at least 5-6 times. This will ensure you have crispy Samosas.
You should keep aside the dough for at least 40-60 minutes for best results
While rolling the dough ball, keep it thin and do not use any flour in it. You can use a little oil to roll the ball evenly.
Always fry the Samosa on low flame irrespective of how much time it is taking to fry. This will also ensure that your samosas are blisters free and cooked from inside.
