Street Food on my Dining Table


Sinfully deep fried samosas...made my Mom's way- not perfected in terms of measures but still tasty when hot
The outer
Mix thoroughly 2 - 3 tbsp ghee in 3 cups maida- take a fist ful of maida in your palm and try to make it into a laddu. If it holds together- the consistency is ok or else add more ghee. Add salt, ajowain and black jeera (mangrella). Make into a really stiff dough.

The Filling
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan, add peanuts and fry. Add half- 1 lemon juice, 1/2 spoon turmeric, 1 spoon coriander powder, 1-2 green chillies, 1/2 tsp ginger paste and mix well. Add boiled poatoes and mix them well. Cover and cook on medium flame for 5-7 minutes

Making the samosa
Take a small ball of the dough and roll it into a thin round. Cut the round piece into half- into 2 semicircles.
With the index finger rub a little water on half of the straight edge of the semi circle. Fold the semicircle and join the straight edges and make a cone. Fill the stuffing, close the open edges and deep fry on medium - low flame.
You could also make yummy samosa chaat using left over ones!
