Instructions
 

HOW TO MAKE THE DOUGH

  • In a bowl or in a stand mixer attached bowl, add all-purpose flour, oil/ghee, salt, and carom seeds. Knead it properly until it forms like a dough. Do not over mix the dough. Otherwise, samosas will turn hard.
    (Note: Add water little by little, as needed. Do not add too much water as dough needs to be stiff).
  • Once the dough is prepared, cover it in a damp cloth. Let it rest for 30-40 minutes before preparing the samosas.

HOW TO MAKE THE STUFFING

  • First, you need to boil the potatoes. You can either boil in the instant pot or in a stovetop pressure cooker. 
    To boil in an instant pot, add 2 cups of water to the pot along with the potatoes. Pressure cook for 8 minutes at the high-pressure level and let pressure release naturally.
    When boiling in the stovetop pressure cooker, add potatoes and 2 cups of water, and pressure cook for 3-4 whistles. Once pressure is released, remove the potatoes.
  • Peel the potato skin, and using a potato masher or fork, mash the potatoes in a bowl.
  • Heat oil in a pan at medium heat and add cumin seeds and coriander seeds. When they change color, add chopped ginger and green chilis. Fry for 1-2 minutes, and then add potatoes and mix.
  • Then add all the spices, including red chili powder, garam masala powder, roasted cumin powder, anardana powder, mango powder, salt, and fennel seeds powder.
  • Lastly add green peas and paneer and mix until everything is combined properly. Remove the potato stuffing in a bowl and let it rest until the filling cools down.

HOW TO ROLL THE DOUGH

  • Cut the dough into equal-sized balls. Add few drops of oil between your palm and roll the ball until smooth. (see pictures above for more details)
  • Place one ball on the working bench, and using a rolling pin, roll it until thin throughout. It should be even and thin. (see pictures above for more details)
  • Cut the rolled dough from the middle so that you get two half-circular pieces. Both the pieces should be of even size. (see pictures above for more details)

HOW TO SHAPE SAMOSAS

  • Apply some water on the straight edge and bring it together so that it forms like a cone. The cone should be wide enough to add the stuffing to it. Open the cone and add 1-2 teaspoons of potato stuffing. Push the stuffing a little so that samosas are evenly filled with the stuffing. (see pictures above for more details)
  • Apply some water on the edges to seal the samosa. Press the edges together so there is no opening, and the stuffing is properly sealed. (see pictures above for more details)

HOW TO FRY SAMOSAS

  • Heat oil in a Kadai or in a frying pan for 5-10 minutes before adding samosa. Once the oil is hot enough, then place samosas in the oil.
     (Note: Do not overcrowd samosas for even frying).
  • Fry until one side is golden brown, then flip the samosa. Cook the other side of the samosa until golden brown.
  • Transfer the prepared samosa to the paper towel to remove excess oil. Serve it with sweet tamarind chutney and green chutney.

HOW TO MAKE SAMOSA IN AN AIR FRYER

  • Preheat the air fryer for 5 minutes at 375 degrees. Place some prepared samosas in the air fryer basket and brush some oil. Air fry for 10 minutes at 375 degrees and then flip the samosas. Then again, air fry for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. For deep brown color, you can air fry at 400 degrees for 2 minutes and serve.

HOW TO BAKE SAMOSA

  • Preheat oven at 375°F fro at least 15-20 minutes. Arrange the samosas in the baking sheet and brush some oil. Once the oven is preheat, place the baking sheet in the oven. Bake for 30- 40 minutes at 375°F until golden brown in color.

Notes

You can either store it in the refrigerator for 3-5 days and reheat it in a microwave, or oven, or in an air fryer. Or you can store them in freezer-safe bags or containers and freeze them for 2-3 months. When reusing, just place in the oven or air fryer and cook until hot and crispy.
