About Halwaai style Aloo Samosa. Recipe

Samosa is that one thing we all crave for round the clock. I mean who can resist flaky samosa pastry, stuffed with a spicy, mouthwatering aloo (potato) filling thats deep fried to golden? Oh no, Not me for sure! And the reality kicks in, as Its hard to find a decent crust samosa here.All we are offered is the samosa made using phyllo sheet or puff pastry.These people never get that the samosa crust is way too different from those rolled store bought pastries. When patient enough you make yourself or just drool until you pay a visit home.Country of residence : Ireland

  6. Divide the dough into eight equal portions.
  7. Roll out each dough portion into oval shape and cut it into equal halves.
  8. Brush water along the half of the flat edge of the semi oval.
  9. Overlap the wet half over the dry other half .
  10. Press and seal along the corners to form a cone.
  11. Perfectly sealed cone.
  12. Add a spoonful or two of prepared and cooled potato filling in the cone.
  13. Fold a centimeter of the curved edge of the dough as shown in the image.Press firmly to seal.
  14. Now bring both the edges together and press firmly. Apply little moisture if needed.

  16. Back of the samosa.
  17. Place the filled and shaped samosas in a thali or a pan with high edges and rest them atleast for half an hour.
  18. Later start heating oil in a kadai for deep frying the samosas.
  19. Oil temperature has to be medium hot.
  20. Slowly slide in the samosas and fry on low medium heat until golden.
  21. This is a time consuming process. Do not rush here.
  22. Keep turning them around and continue to fry until golden on all the sides.
  23. This might take around 20 to 25 minutes.
  24. Once golden remove them with a slotted spoon on to a paper towel lined plate.
  25. Repeat and fry the rest.

My Tip:

Knead a stiff dough. Resting the dough and frying in minimum heat is key for flaky crust of the samosa.
