Homemade Samosa Pastry

Homemade Samosa Pastry

A samosa is a neat little package of a filling of minced vegetables/ minced meat wrapped in a flaky dough and deep-fried to perfection. One simple but important technique to know before making these deep-fried treats is to make those neat triangular packets in which to stuff the filing. So here is a step by step process to make the pastry dough and  then assemble the samosas.

Ingredients:

  • All-purpose Flour: 1-1/2 cups
  • Salt: 3/4 tsp
  • Oil: 2 tbsp
  • Water: 1/4 cup

Steps:

To make the dough: Mix all purpose flour, salt and oil in a bowl.  Break the lumps to make sure all the oil is well incorporated into the flour. Add water and knead to get a stiff dough. Cover the dough with moist napkin and keep aside for 20 minutes.

Divide the dough into equal portions. Take each portion in hand and make a smooth ball. Roll each ball with rolling pin into a disc with an even thickness.

Cut the disc in half (2 semi circles) using a knife.

Fold one edge in half and brush the other edge with water. Join the edges to make a cone, press the edges to make a tight seal.

I would love to hear what kind of filling will go well in a samosa other than those which are traditionally used.
