  1. Whole wheat flour: 1 cup
  2. Sooji/rava- 1/4 cup
  3. Coconut oil or Cooking Oil: 1 tsp+ 1 tsp
  4. Lukewarm water: 1 cup ( may be required)
  5. Salt to taste
  6. Milk: 2 tbsp for brushing
  7. Filling Ingredients:
  8. Coconut oil: 1 tsp
  9. Chopped onion: 1 cup
  10. Grated carrot: 1 cup
  11. Finely shredded cabbage: 1 cup
  12. Cauliflower florets: 1 cup
  13. Green chilli: 1 medium finely chopped
  14. Garam masala: 1/4 tsp
  15. Lemon juice: 1 tbsp
  16. Salt to taste


  1. Add the flour, sooji, salt, 1 tsp oil into a bowl.
  2. Pour little water at a time and make a soft pliable dough. Knead it well and shape into a ball.
  3. Once done, apply oil to the outside of the ball dough. Cover it with a damp cloth and keep aside for 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Next, heat oil in a sauté pan/wok. Add in the chopped onions and sauté until the onion turns slightly golden brown in colour.
  5. Add in the cauliflower florets, chopped chillies and cook on a low flame until it is 3/4th cooked.
  6. Put in the chopped carrots, cabbage, salt, garam masala powder and cook until it is just tender.
  7. Make sure not to overcook it. Switch off the flame and pour in the lemon juice. Mix this well and keep aside.
  8. Preheat the oven to 176 degrees celsius. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper and keep it ready.
  9. Pinch a lemon sized dough and shape it into a ball. Then roll it into a 5-6 inch diameter circle.
  10. With the help of a sharp knife cut it into two equal semicircles.Place a teaspoonful of filling at one end of the semicircle.
  11. Bring the corners of the semicircle together and gently seal the edges with your fingers properly.
  12. Follow this process with the rest of the dough. You can make approximately 25 bite-sized samosas or 10-12 big samosas.
  13. Brush both sides of the samosa with milk and line them on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.
  14. Place the baking sheet on the middle rack of the oven. Bake at 176 degree celsius for 35-45 minutes or until they turn light golden brown.
  15. Remember to turn it over once in between this time and coat it again with milk.
  16. Serve hot with ketchup or some fresh mint chutney.
