Samosa is a very good snack for little hunger here in India; very easily available and also you can make it at home also. It is also very popular snack sold at road side vendors and also a part of tea parties. It is served with green hot & sour chutney or red sweet & sour chutney; some time people love to have it with chole (chicken peas with gravy). I like my samosa with green hot & sour chutney!!! How you want?

- Now add ½ cup of water and start kneading the dough, if require add more dough. Make this dough like roti dough; not too much soft not too much hard; it should be firm and smooth.
- Cover the dough with a damp cloth and set aside for some time until filling is not ready.
- Now in pan heat 2 tbsp. oil and simmer the heat; add roughly crushed fennel (सौंफ़) seeds & fenugreek (मेथी) seeds. Sauté a while.
- Add ginger - garlic (अदरक - लहसुन) paste and sauté till row aroma of garlic (लहसुन) goes away.

- Turn off the gas and let it cool so you can easily handle it.
- Now it’s a time to make samosa wrapping; take dough knead once more and make equal size small ball from this dough – usually from 2 cup all purpose flour (मैदा) dough makes 7-8 ball.
- With the help of rolling pin & board make flat rounds (just like puri).
- With the help of knife half cut each flat round.
- Pick up one half and brush it with a little water along the straight edge of the wrap.
- Take one edge of the straight side, and place it on the other edge of the straight side to make a cone shape. Little press the corner of the cone to seal it.
- In this cone now add the stuffing; I usually add 1 ½ tbsp and it fill my ¾th space in a cone. Not go up to this.
- Now brush the inner side of unfilled wrapper area with water and seal it by pressing the edges together.
- Place this samosa in graced tray and make sure they do not touch each other; also cover with damp cloth.
- Repeat steps 17 to 21 for all wraps.
- Once all row samosa’s ready deep fry them in hot oil.
- Serve hot with chutney & tea/coffee in the evening or in any small get to gather.
• If you like, while making dough you can add celery (अजवाइन) seeds. I don’t like celery (अजवाइन) seeds in my samosa so I did not write in my recipe above.
