 Here I am going to share the authentic way of making the samosa sheet instantly by mixing flour, ghee, ajwain, salt, and water. Firstly we going to make the dough and let them rest for 30 minutes. Then we make a spicy and tangy filling with potatoes and peas. Then we shape the dough into small balls and flatten them . We can make 2 samosas from one dough ball. Next, we are going to fill the cone-shaped samosa sheet with the prepared filling and seal it and fry until gold and crispy. I served this samosa with tangy tamarind chutney.
