Samosa

Samosa, Bangalore life shows so many varieties of samosa’s. Here the Punjabi samosa are most popular one. All the condiments will definitely have a fresh batch of Punjabi samosa. So all these years we buy that punjabi samosa without another choice.

Sometimes really made a strong mind to never buy them, because both the samosas are entirely different from texture to flavour. Its a long back when I was preparing myself to be a food blogger I made a Todo list to make few recipes, there my favourite south Indian samosa listed top. I tried few times but faced a big flop, even though after years my love for the samosa knock again, and thanks to Google and Youtube learned few trick things to make these beauties. 

Im not person who use frozen products in my pantry, so I never thought to try homemade samosa in store bought samosa sheets. I should tell here, Why this much craze over this fried snack. People from Duthie school school will never forget the break time. We have no idea in those days Where they bring such a big cartoons of samosa’s and snacks to our School canteen. During break we rush to canteen to reserve few pieces of samosa and Palkova.  In those samosa the filling will be the tapioca stuffed one. Those are the best samosa I ever had. 

In this recipe I used Aloo peas for stuffing, You can change the stuffing to your choice. After so many trials and errors finally I learned to make a perfect samosa. Scroll down for the complete recipe. Write me up if you have any doubt. Remember Homemade stuffs are the best to feed our family. So please try and let me know your experience too.

Heat a Kadai with Oil, Drop the samosa into the hot oil
 
 
 Flip and cook all the sides of the Samosa. 
 
 
Flip them again and cook to make the outer cover crisp. Turn the flame to high to make the outer crust. 
 
 
Almost done. 
 
 
Drain them out form the oil, and set them in Colander or keep them in kitchen towel. 
 
 
 

Notes

    • Knead a soft Dough, to check press the dough with your fingers it should poke smoothly without any stickiness.
    • While spreading the sheet, use a thick rolling pin, which helps to make a smooth even spread for the sheet. 
    • Experts will fold the samosa without heating the sheet, in this above recipe Heating the sheet helps to get a good grip. 
    • Just heat the sheets for 15 – 20 secs, if the sheets get over cooked the layers may tear easily. 
    • You can use your choice of Stuffing.

  • yarnsnknots – Welcome to my hobby endeavour, Crocheting has been a passion for me from my childhood. Learning it from my mum at an early childhood age, the crochet needle has been my best friend. Little did I believe that this hobby will launch me in for a big success - The Guinness World Record. This was after I had retired and successfully navigated through my best roles of a homemaker, a mum and a government officer. I attribute this success primarily to constant passion. Here is my experience, you may not think you are doing much till the time is right. So, keep that fire in you gently kindled at all times. The second most important one is never above learning, as learning never stops. The third, age is that number that holds you back, do your best at every year you get and it cannot hold you back. Now, are you ready to see my creations? Head over to the posts and dont miss to comment on my posts. If you wish to purchase some of these items, email me yarnsnknots@gmail.com Enjoy your hobbies and draw inspiration from mine.

    I agree with you, making homemade things from scratch is the best decision ever! We can control everything from salt to sugar to oil. Samosas are my major weakness my dear, and I just like you have fond memories of my school and college days when I had them during breaks etc. It was damn cheap and super flavourful. As South Indians, we normally didnt make this much at home, it was usually the bajjis or bondas that were more popular but the craving for punjabi flavoured samosas were always there. Loved your version of the pastry sheet making and then frying to get the perfect texture. Beautiful capture.
