Vegetable Samosa


Potato 1 boiled and peeled
green peas cooked 3/4 cup
cauliflower florets 1 cup cooked carrots chopped 1 Tbsp
onions 2 chopped
ginger 1/2 " piece chopped
green chillies chopped 2
curry leaves and coriander leaves few chopped
fennel seeds / perumjeerakam powder 2 pinches
cumin seeds / jeerakam powder 2 pinches optional
garam masala 1/2 tsp
pepper powder 1/4 tsp
chilli powder 1/2 tsp
coriander powder 1 1/2 tsp
turmeric powder 1/4 tsp


Heat oil saute chopped onions. When transparent add chopped ginger and green chillies. Saute for a while. Add chopped cauliflower , carrots and saute. Break potato (don't mash it like we do for cutlets) and add it to this along with green peas. Stir after adding all the powders and curry leaves and coriander leaves too. Add salt too.

For making dough,
Samosa dough is always prepared using maida and baking powder. I wouldn't use much of maida for cooking except for making cake. So I make dough using a mixture of atta and maida.You can take the equal amounts of maida and atta for this. Or use it as you desired. Add ghee or oil while kneading the dough. Fill the mixture in the samosa cones as you see in the above picture and deep fry them. Serve with hot chilly or garlic tomato ketchup or some green chutneys..!


  1. nice one, i dont add baking powder and had hot oil or ghee while kneading the douh, this way, it remains flaky and crisp for a longer time.

  2. always feel samosa is a lot of work, never tried it :)

  3. Nice step by step instructions...made with aloo stuffing some time back

  4. Samosas look yummy and crispy Seena!

  13. Lovely-looking samosas, Seena. I was curious- did the addition of atta make the samosas any less crispier than they would be with the maida alone?

  36. Hi Seena,

    Tried ur spicy french toast also,that too came out nicely.

  37. Thank you Priya!
    I too love both recipes, lemon juice idea is nice..
    Hope to see u again! :)

  38. Hi Seena,
    I tried making your samosa..The inner part of the crust is not getting done(When you bite it,you will see white color of th crust)But when I fry it longer,nothing changes except that it gets dark brown in the outer.I think I made some silly mistakes..Any idea what went wrong?

  39. Hi Paru,
    sorry, was busy with kids exams, so late to reply.. :)
    the inner part will not look the same as outer part. Fry on a medium heat, other wise the outer part would be cooked soon and the inner will remain uncooked..

  40. Wow! Samosas are my favorite snack too. Your step by step instructions tempts me to try it out soon. Thanks for the recipe Seena.


  41. Thank You so much for this recipe. I made it already so many times and my family so happy...
    Best Regards from Lithuania. :)
