The Black Jubah said...

Wow, my all time favourite. If I go anywhere, when I see samosas I would buy it.My kids would not like the onion filling, do you have the cheese filling or potato filling? What is Maida flour? does wheat flour means whole meal flour or flour used to make capati?
Thank you.

Manasi said...

Thank you Jay! These look so good-I just love vegetable samosas!

Those look fab! Samosas are indeed the king of street food, and rightly so! Thats a brilliant step by step process Jay! Thanks for sharing!

Such a clever way to make and shape the little cones. I racking my brain to come up with a substitute for the onions since too much onions doesn't agree with me anymore. Any ideas? Beautiful food photos, as always, Jay.

Keep writing...

Jay said...

Thank you all for visiting my space...your feedback encourages me a lot..! Will be around your space soon..:)

Jay said...

Hy Prathy, to get the triangle to round shape again , I rolled it to thinner size & cut it to round shape by placing a plate on it.
do giv a try & lemme know..:)

Jay said...

Hy Black Jubah, you can alternate the filling of onion with potato masala or any veg masala..def it tastes great.
And maida flour is All Purpose flour available at all Indian stores. Wheat flour is whole wheat flour or Atta flour.

Jay said...

Hy Kathleen, thanks for your lovely compliment..
you can add potato masala filling & enjoy the spicy taste of samosa..;)

Sharanya said...

i have made dem before from vahchef videos...tried dem again on seeing your post....the outer layer became hard dis time...is it because of addition of maida??do let me know where i could hav gone wrong..want to try tem again

Jay said...

Hy Saranya,
the main key to get crispy exterior of samosa, is the consistency of the dough, it should be smooth & soft and let it rest for 20 to 30 mins by covering with a damp cloth..
do giv a try & lemme know..:)

radha said...

Looks great. My samosas have never really been crisp. Want to try this one with the addition of poha and the layering of the covering. Bookmarking
