Ingredients Serving: 10

  1. Yellow Moong Dal (lentils) soaked for 5-6 hours- 1 cup
  2. Green chillies 3-4
  3. Red Chilli Powder- 1 tsp
  4. coriander powder- 1/2 tsp
  5. fennel powder- 1/2 tsp
  6. Roasted cumin Powder- 1/4 tsp
  7. Dry Mango Powder- 1/4 tsp
  8. Garam masala Powder- 1/2 tsp
  9. Kasuri methi (fenugreek leaves)- 1/4 tsp
  10. mustard oil- 3 tbsp
  11. salt to taste
  12. All purpose flour- 2 cups
  13. Refined Oil- 2 tbsp
  14. salt - 1/4 tsp
  15. A few fennel seeds
  16. water as required to knead
  17. Refined oil as required to deep fry


  1. Wash and drain the moong dal. Now grind it in a mixer with green chillies to make a coarse paste.
  2. Heat the 3 tbsp mustard oil in a wok. Once the oil is hot, add in the dal paste and the spices, stir well on a low flame till the dal is dry enough for the filling.
  3. Also knead the dough with the dough ingredients such that the dough is neither too hard nor too soft (like a poori dough).
  4. Pinch small balls and roll them into small pooris. Run a knife in the middle of the poori to divide it into two equal halves. Make a conical shape from each half and close it with the help of water run fingers on the inner side.
  5. Fill the cone with the dal filling and close it again in the same way. Press the closing area using fork marks to ensure it has a proper sealing.
  6. Continue this filling and closing process for the rest of the samosas.
  7. Heat oil in a kadai to deep fry. Switch off the gas once the oil is hot, then let it cool a bit.
  8. Now add the samosas into the oil. Ignite the flame to medium and fry till these samosas turn golden brown in colour.
  9. Once they are cooked, place them on a tissue paper so that the extra oil is drained out.
  10. Serve hot or store in an airtight container as desired.
