Samosas (Fried)

READY IN: 1hr 30mins




  • Peel potatoes, cut the larger ones in half, and boil for 20 minutes or until soft.
  • Mix together the flour, butter, fenugreek powder, and salt until the dough has a shaggy consistency from the butter chunks.
  • Add a little water, until mixture becomes crumbly. Keep adding water, kneading the mixture till it becomes a soft pliable dough.
  • Knead the dough until dry ingredients are fully blended.
  • Wrap in plastic wrap and set aside for 20 minutes.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a pan. Add ginger, garlic, and coriander seeds. Stir fry for 1 minute, add onions and saute till light brown.
  • Add cilantro, lemon juice, turmeric, peppers, and garam masala.
  • Stir fry for 2 minutes.
  • Break potatoes into small pieces, but don't mash them, and add to the pan. Stir fry for 2 minutes. Set aside and allow to cool.
  • Heat enough oil to immerse the largest samosa to 375°F.
  • Divide dough into 8 equal portions.
  • Use a rolling pin, roll a piece of dough into a 5" oval, as flat as you can make it. Cut in half.
  • Run a moist finger along the perimeter of each half. Place a tablespoon of the filling into each half.
  • Fold the dough over to fully cover the filling and press any loose pieces together. Shape each half into a triangle. Repeat for remaining dough and filling.
  • Fry samosas, ensuring that they aren't crowded in the pan. Remove and place on cooling rack when golden brown.
