  • Add hot oil or warm oil into the flour and crumble the mixture well.
  • Add water gradually and knead the dough into a soft pliable dough.
  • Cover the dough and rest it for 20 minutes.

Step 3(Rolling dough and roasting):

  • Take the dough and divide the dough into small portions of lemon size.
  • Take each dough portion, coat it with flour before rolling.
  • Roll the dough portion into a small circular shape of poori size sheet.
  • Roll all the portions into small chapati size sheets and keep aside.
  • Heat a tawa/griddle, add the round sheets on the tawa.
  • Roast each side for 20 seconds and not more than that.

Step 4 (Stuffing and folding):

  • Take each roasted pastry, apply maida paste all around the corners of the round sheet.
  • Add the stuffing and give a cone shape as shown in the picture or follow the video till the end and seal the cone properly with maida paste.

  • Do not fry on high flame.

  • Serve hot with chutney or ketchup.



  • The samosa sheets if roasted can be frezzed and stored airtight for 2-3 weeks and used when needed.
  • The sheets if not roasted should be used directly and cannot be stored without roasting them.
  • The stuffing if made fresh and stuffed into the patties tastes best when deep fried.
