Samosa Dough

  • 250 g Plain Flour
  • 3 tbsp Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Ajwain Seeds
  • Water as needed

Samosa Filling

  • 150 g Potatoes peeled and diced
  • 100 g Carrots peeled and diced
  • 100 g Peas
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • Salt to taste


  • In a mixing bowl, combine the plain flour, vegetable oil, salt, and ajwain seeds. Mix well.
  • Gradually add water and knead the mixture to form a smooth dough. Cover it with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  • While the dough is resting, prepare the filling. Heat some oil in a pan, add cumin seeds, and let them splutter.
  • Add the diced potatoes, carrots, and peas to the pan. Cook them until they are tender.
  • Add the coriander powder, garam masala, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, and salt to the cooked vegetables. Mix well and cook for a few more minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool.
  • After 30 minutes, divide the dough into small portions and roll each portion into a thin oval or circle.
  • Cut each oval/circle in half to form two semi-circles.
  • Take one semi-circle, fold it into a cone shape, and seal the edge with a little water.
  • Fill the cone with the prepared vegetable filling.
  • Seal the open edge of the cone to form a triangular samosa. Press the edges to ensure they are sealed properly.
  • Heat oil in a deep frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, gently slide the samosas into the hot oil and fry until they turn golden brown and crispy.
  • Remove the fried samosas from the oil and drain excess oil on a paper towel.
  • Serve the delicious Vegetable Samosas hot with chutney or sauce of your choice.
