Now, before jumping to the samosa recipe we answered some questions that you may have regarding the samosas.
How do you keep samosas crispy for a long time?
When the skin of samosa turns crispy, these are warm throughout. You may let them cool on a wire rack to prevent them from getting soggy with oil. You may even transfer them onto paper towels and reheat in the oven to maintain its crispiness for a longer duration.
How do you seal samosa?
You can wrap your samosa using fingers and some water at samosa’s tip and fold it one last time. Keep pressing the sealed end with fingers until it’s perfectly sealed.
How do you roll a samosa triangle?
First, take small pieces of dough and roll them into a full circle using a rolling pin. Once the dough is perfectly flattened in the form of a full circle, you can cut it in two halves or semi-circles. Fold each semi-circle individually to form a cone shape. Fill these cones with potato stuffing and seal the end with water to form a perfect triangle.

Steps to Make Crispy Samosa at Home:-
Step 1: Make samosa dough
For making samosa dough, you need all-purpose flour/maida, salt to taste, ajwain (carom seeds), four tablespoons desi ghee and water to bind the whole mixture into dough. You need to ensure that there is firm texture while kneading. Once it’s prepared, leave the dough aside for a while.
Step 2: Prepare aloo (potato) masala stuffing
For preparing samosa at home, you need to prepare aloo stuffing by putting a pan on medium flame. Let it heat for a while and add desi ghee into the pan. Now add coriander seeds and let them turn slightly brown.
After that, add the ginger-garlic paste into the pan, along with some green peas. Stir it properly and then add green chillies, salt, kitchen king masala, coriander powder, garam masala powder, and haldi (turmeric) into the mixture.
Stir it well and add mashed aloo (potatoes) to it. Also, add freshly chopped green coriander leaves into the mixture. Keep stirring it for a while and your aloo stuffing is ready. Take out the mixture in a bowl and let it cool for a while
Step 3: Make round dough balls, flatten them and cut into half
In this step, you have to take small pieces of dough and turn them into round balls. Now flatten the round dough balls into a circle using a rolling pin. It is best to wear gloves and mask while preparing food in the kitchen for avoiding any sort of contamination. After rolling a dough ball into a complete circle, cut the circle in half.
After that, take the semi-circle in one hand and dip another hand in the water to apply it on the inner side to fold the edges to give it a cone shape. Once the cone shape is formed, start adding aloo masala stuffing into the cone, apply some more water on the open ends and seal it nicely with your fingers.
Step 4: Fry the samosa in a pan
Now, put some oil in a pan, add the triangle samosas into it and start heating the pan. Remember, that you don’t have to pre-heat the oil. Just put the samosa into the oil and then turn on the stove (as shown in the video below).
Always keep the flame on low while deep frying the samosa. Don’t turn the flame too high; otherwise, the samosa could burn. Keep stirring the samosa till it turns golden brown.
That’s how your samosa recipe is prepared. You can enjoy it with green (mint) chutney or red (tamarind) chutney.
