Samosa

Last night I invited a few friends on an indian dinner and I tried to cook new recipes, so the next few post are gonna be about indian food.

I learnt how do samosa from a lady on youtube: Manjula.
















Ingredients:

Dough:
1 cup of flour
1 tablespoon semolina flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon oil
1/4 cup lukewarm water

Filling:
3 boiled potatoes, chopped in small cubes
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1/4 teaspoon masala
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup frozen peas

Make the dough with flour, semolina flour, salt, oil and water. When the dough is ready leave it aside for 15 minutes. In the meantime heat the oil in a pan. Add the frozen peas and the spices, then mix. When the peas are tender add potatoes and mix. Cook for about 15 minutes. Cool them a little bit.
Put the dough in 4 pieces. With the rolling pin make it thin and round shape. Cut it in half. Make out a cone and fill it with the filling. When you filled it put the edges of the dough together. You should have a triangular shape. I'm not really good at explaining this, Manjula in her video is a lot better than me. Be careful, it should be attached well. When you did all the samosas deep fry them in hot oil.
