Cover each potato with a moist napkin. Pierce with fork 5 times on each side. Put in plate and microwave 10-12 minutes to cook. Let cool, peel and mash with potato masher.
Meanwhile, blend mint, 2 jalapenos, ginger, whole coriander seeds (dhaniya) and fennel seeds with 2 tbsp water.
Heat 1½ tbsp oil in a nonstick pan. Add spices and mix. Cook for about a minute on medium-low.
Add the paste from step two to the pan. Mix and cook 1-2 minutes. Add mashed potatoes to pan and mix thoroughly. Cook 2 -3 minutes. Turn off gas, set aside to cool.
Preheat oven to 410F. Prepare puff pastry sheets. Unroll and lightly roll out the sheets. Use a 5 inch circle cutter to make circle cut outs. Cut each circle in half. Brush edges with heavy cream.
Fill with potato filling, a few jalapeno pieces and cheddar cheese. Fold and press to seal. Brush with heavy cream to get a nice browned exterior when baking.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Fill with samosas and bake for 17-20 minutes. Until gold and crispy.
