Dry mango powder - 1 tsp
Kasuri methi (Optional) - 1tsp
Turmeric (Optional) - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste


For Stuffing:
  • Heat oil. 
  • Add Coriander seeds, cumin seeds, onion seeds, fennel seeds. Let them splutter.
  • Add boiled potatoes,  salt, dry mango powder, turmeric, Kasuri methi and red chilli.
  • Mash and mix them well.
  • Stuffing is ready!

For Dough:
  • For 1 cup sooji, you will need 2 cups of water.
  • Heat water in a pan. 
  • When it starts boiling, Add salt and carom seeds.
  • Add sooji. Keep on stirring until it reaches dough like consistency. 
  • Keep it aside in a separate container. Let it cool down a bit. 
  • When it is warm, Knead it. Add some oil while kneading it.
  • The dough should be very soft. Just like normal dough for chapatis.

For samosa:
  • Take a small section of dough. 
  • Add little oil on your palm and make it flat, just like chapati. Don't worry it starts breaking. It is very easy to fix.
  • However, if you find it difficult then take a polyethene sheet.
  • Apply oil on it. Place that small section of the dough. Cover it.
  • Start making it flat. This process is similar to Sabudana thalipeeth.
  • Keep it on a well-greased plate.
  • Cut it into two halves.

  • Put some stuffing in both the sections.

  • Fold it as demonstrated in the pics below.

  • Deep fry these samosas on high flame until they are golden brown.
  • You can air fry/bake samosas as well.
  • Serve it with your favourite chutney.
