For the filling:


  1. Prepare the dough:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, carom seeds, ghee, and a pinch of salt.
    • Mix well until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
    • Gradually add water and knead to form a smooth dough.
    • Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 20-30 minutes.
  2. Prepare the filling:
    • Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds. Let them crackle.
    • Add ginger paste and green chili paste. Sauté for a minute.
    • Add boiled and mashed potatoes, boiled green peas, coriander powder, garam masala, amchur powder, red chili powder, and salt.
    • Mix well and cook for 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavors to blend.
    • Turn off the heat and garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves. Set the filling aside to cool.
  3. Assemble and shape the samosas:
    • Divide the dough into small lemon-sized balls.
    • Take one ball and roll it out into a thin oval shape.
    • Cut the oval in half, creating two semi-circles.
    • Moisten the straight edge of the semi-circle with water.
    • Fold the semi-circle into a cone shape, overlapping the moistened edge over the dry edge.
    • Fill the cone with a spoonful of the prepared filling, leaving some space at the top.
    • Moisten the open edges and pinch them together to seal the samosa.
    • Repeat the process for the remaining dough and filling.
  4. Deep frying the samosas:
    • Heat oil in a deep frying pan over medium heat.
    • Gently slide the samosas into the hot oil, ensuring not to overcrowd the pan.
    • Fry the samosas until they turn golden brown and crispy from all sides.
    • Remove them from the oil using a slotted spoon and drain on a kitchen towel to remove excess oil.
