  • Spring onion (1/2 cup)

  • Green chili (3 tablespoons)

  • All-purpose flour (2 cup)

  • Oil (4 cup for frying)

  • Cumin seed (2 teaspoon)


  • Boil and Prep Potatoes
  • Place potatoes in a large pot and boil for approximately 30 minutes over medium heat.
  • Once boiled, use a fork or knife to check if they’re tender. Remove from water and peel.
  • Mash and Season Potatoes
  • Mash the boiled potatoes using a masher, grater, or grinder.
  • Add salt, paprika, turmeric, green chili, green coriander, cabbage, and spring onion. Mix thoroughly for the right consistency.
  • Prepare Sealing Paste
  • In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour with some water to create a thick paste. This will be used for sealing.
  • Make Samosa Dough
  • Mix all-purpose flour with cumin seeds and a pinch of salt. Gradually add water to achieve a pizza dough-like consistency.
  • Knead the flour mixture into a soft dough. If it’s too sticky, add a little more flour. Allow it to rest for 15 minutes.
  • Shape and Fill Samosas
  • Grease your hands and form small dough balls. Refrigerate them for 15 minutes.
  • Roll out each ball into a flat disc using a rolling pin. Create a pocket and fill it with the prepared potato mixture. Seal the edges using the flour paste.
  • Fry Samosas
  • Heat oil in a pan for deep frying. Once hot, carefully add the samosas.
