For the dough

    • 1 cup maida
    • 1 tsp Salt
    • 2 tbsp oil
    • 1/4 cup water

  • 2 medium size potatoes boiled and mashed
  • 1/2 cup fresh green peas
  • 4-5 chopped cashew nuts
  • 1 finely chopped green chilli
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tbsp green coriander
  • 2 tsp oil


Step 1

Add all the ingredients for making the dough in a large bowl and knead with water. Add more water if needed. Knead well till the dough is soft.

Heat oil in a pan for deep frying and fry the samosas till they turn golden.
