Potli Samosa Recipe: How To Make Potli Samosa
First, we need to prepare the dough for the samosa. For this, add maida and salt in a bowl. Mix well. Add oil and start mixing the dough until it becomes crumbly. Gradually add the water and knead to form a stiff dough. Cover it with a damp cloth and set aside for 30 minutes. After some time, knead the dough again and divide it into small portions.
To prepare the filling, heat some oil in a pan. Add jeera and fennel seeds and allow them to crackle. Add green chillies, ginger, onion, and fry for a few seconds. Add coriander seeds, dry mango powder, garam masala and salt. Cook for around 1-2 mins. Finally, add the mashed potatoes and give everything a nice mix. Take it off the heat, add kasuri methi and coriander seeds. Mix well and keep aside.
To make the potli, take a small dough ball and roll it out into a thin disc. Now, take some stuffing and place it in the center of the rolled disc. Brush the edges of the disc with water. Bring the edges together to form a potli. Gently press and seal the potli. (Make sure the stuffing remains in place).
Heat oil in a kadhai set on medium-high flame. Slide the potlis in the oil and deep-fry until golden brown and crispy. Potli samosa is ready! For the complete recipe of potli samosa, click here.
