|Roll the dough in thin circles, Cut it open in the middle|
To assemble the samosas, take one of the half moons, put about a tablespoon or two of the desired filling (potato, peas/corn or spinach). Fold from one side towards the center and then from another side (seal by gently dabbing the edges with water).
|Take a semi-circle match end to end, this would make a cone|
|Now we will get our fillings into the cone|
|Formula is simple - A good Samosa = A good Filling !!|
|Make sure you wet the sides a little to seal the ends !!!|
|Here our Samosa is ready for action !!!, A few more to go though....|
|And now Battalion of Samosas is waiting on the kitchen island for being fried shortly...|
|Loved the dash of green cilantro on Samosa Skin|
