notes and tricks:

  • firstly, do not skip adding ghee while kneading flour. it makes samosas crunchy and avoid bubbles on the crust.
  • in addition, add the water accordingly and knead knead dough tight.
  • furthermore, don’t roll the samosa crust too thick otherwise it will take too much time to cook from inside.
  • also, don’t roll the samosa too thin, as you many not enjoy he real taste.
  • when you drop the samosas to hot oil, make sure it is not very hot. the oil should be just about to boil. as a result, samosas would be uniformly cooked.
  • also keep the stuffing of potato into chunks. also, do not mash the stuffing smooth.
  • finally, to samosa stuffing, add raisins and cashews if you prefer.

  3. Hi Archana and Sudarshan,

    I just recently stumbled upon your website/blog . I have so far tried your Sandwich Recipes and recently I also tried your Punjabi samosas – this is my first attempt at making samosas and they have come out fine, although I think I should have added more ghee to my dough , since I saw some bubbles on the fried samosas. I should thank you both for making the presentations of each and every recipe very simple and easy to learn. Keep it up. All the very best to both of you.

    Regards,
    Radhika
