Description: Samosas are omnipresent!! They’ve become such a popular snack worldwide and I haven’t come across a single person yet who doesn’t like samosas.
The word ‘Samosa’ originated from the Persian word sanbosag and it made its way to the Indian subcontinent by Turkic dynasties. Many variations of the fillings and shapes can be found in the preparation of samosa. I’ve tried this ring shape which looks great but cumbrous to make, however I find it relatively easier than the standard cone/triangular shape. I have also substituted standard potato filling with pizza filling which turned out to be delightful. Check out the recipe below and enjoy this delicious snack.
- 3 cups plain flour/wholemeal flour (I’ve tried both and wholemeal tastes equally good)
- 2 tsp carom seeds
- 2 tbsp oil
- 1 tsp salt
Mix all the ingredients well and use water to knead the dough. Add little water at a time and knead a stiff dough. Cover and let it rest for at least 20 minutes.
- 8 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 onion, medium sized, chopped
- 1 pepper, chopped
- 1/3 cup corn
- 1-2 tbsp ketchup, depending on taste
- 1 tbsp mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp pizza/pasta sauce
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1-2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp red chilli powder
