Making Samosas
  1. Divide the dough into 2 small portions. Roll into a disc and cut at the center to make two halfs and apply water on the edges. Shape the dough into cones and stuff the shrimp mixture into the cone. Brush plain water around the top edge and seal shut.
  2. Heat oil in a fryer. Once the oil is hot, turn down the heat and then gently slide in the samosa. Fry till golden brown on all the sides. Once done, lift it from the oil and drain on paper towel and serve immediately.
