Onion Samosa

This week for the Blogging Marathon#31, I chose to cook with the theme of Mini Serving and the first post is a savoury snack Onion Samosa or Irani samosa. With the onion prices sky rocketing, one could cook these with ease at home and beat the inflation too:-)

All purpose flour      1 cup
Oil                            1 tsp
Salt                           as needed
Water                        as needed
Aval/ Poha               1 cup
Onion                       2
Green chillies            1
Chilli powder            1 tsp
Chat masala              1/2 tsp
Cumin powder          1/2 tsp
Coriander                   2 tbsp
Salt                           as per taste

In a big bowl mix the flour with salt and oil

Add the necessary amount of water and knead it into a smooth pliable dough

Let it rest for some time
In another bowl mix poha, cumin powder, chat masala, chilli powder, onion, green chillies, coriander and salt.Mix well

Pinch small marble sized balls from the dough
Make them into very thin chapathis.Cut into rectangular strips

Place a tawa on fire and cook these strips on both sides very lightly. Few seconds on both sides. Remove it from the tawa as soon as you see the bubbles appear

Now apply maida to one side of the strip and fold it as shown

Make it into a cone and put the filling in it

Seal it with the prepared maida paste
Make all the samosas the same way
Now heat the oil in the medium flate and once it is sufficiently hot fry few of the samosa at a time. When the start browning, flip it to the other side and fry again

Remove it from the hot oil with a perforated laddle and drain it on an absorbent paper
Serve hot

These samosas look perfect. crisp and stiff just like store bought ones. Mine always turn out chewy. I like the step where you cook the strips on the tawa before filling them. Will try that next time.
