Snacks : Green Samosas
|Number of servings: 5|
||This is not the regular version of samosas. I have mixed coriander and mint in the flour to give it a green colour and a different taste. Try this out, you will like it.|
|List of ingredients:|
|3 spoons||coriander leaves|
|3 spoons||mint leaves|
|½ spoon||chilli powder|
|salt to taste|
|for deep frying||oil|
|1 cup||cooked mashed potatoes|
|1 ½ cups||mixed vegetables cooked|
|¼ cup||onion chopped|
|2||green chillies minced|
|½ spoon||garlic minced|
|½ spoon||garam masala|
|Grind the coriander, mint and ginger in the mixer to get a nice paste. Use very little water
while grinding. Add salt and a little chilli powder to the maida and mix well. Now add this
green paste and make a nice pliable dough using warm water. Keep aside|
Heat oil in a kadai. Add the onions and fry till golden brown. Now add the mixed veggies and potatoes. Add salt, chillies, and garam masala, and mix well. Fry for a few minutes. Remove from flame, and let it cool. When manageably cool, divide the filling into balls.
Divide the dough into ½ the no of balls.
Now make a nice thick chapatti of the balls. Cut the chapatti in ½. Roll again with the rolling pin. Now place the filling in the center and cover the chapatti over it, in a triangular shape. Do so with the rest of the dough.
Heat oil in a deep pan, and fry the samosas. Serve hot.
|Any additional information:|
