  3.  Now by adding water, knead it into a stiff dough.
  4. Heat oil in a pan.add cumin seeds.
  5. Add mashed potatoes, masala powders and green chillies.
  6. For shaping the samosa, make a 5 inch diameter circle with some dough and cut it into 2 halves.
  7. Now take one semi circle and join two corners of straight line to form a cone.
  8. Place a tablespoon of stuffing in the cone and apply water at the edges to seal it.
  9. Fry these beauties and serve hot with green chutney and tamarind chutney.

My Tip:

Always fry samosas on medium flame. Frying on high flame may result in formation of air bubbles on samosa.
