I agree it is a cumbersome task to make Samosas home. But its not that difficult plus you can make how many samosas you want. There are no restrictions :). Also do consider the fact of outside Samosas. We have no idea which oil they use for frying and for how many times the same oil is used? . Atleast you or your mother would take care of hygiene, oil etc…. Right!

So don’t you think its worth trying once at home!

Also the best part is you can prepare the filling and outer covering of samosas in advance. You could use it next day when you have too many guests. Isn’t that a great idea.

I hope I was convincing enough for you to make Samosas at home.

Form into a triangular or cone shape with hand.  Put inside the filling and brush some water along the side of the Samosa covering. Once you add the filling close it from all ends.

Repeat the same process with the remaining balls. Just ensure you don’t add too much filling else the samosas might break while frying.

Heat oil in a vessel or kadhai. Once the oil is heated add 3 to 4 samosas to fry. Keep the gasflame low.

Once the samosas become crisp and golden brown in color. Remove them and dab tissue paper on it to remove excess oil.

  2. Cover the filling well else it might crack while frying.
