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:
1 cup maida  
3 spoons coriander leaves  
3 spoons mint leaves  
1 spoon ginger  
½ spoon chilli powder  
salt to taste  
a little water  
for deep frying oil  
1 cup cooked mashed potatoes  
1 ½ cups mixed vegetables cooked  
¼ cup onion chopped  
2 green chillies minced  
3 spoons oil  
½ spoon garlic minced  
½ spoon garam masala  

Cooking procedure
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:
You can eat it without any chutney, ‘coz mint and coriander were already added. But if you want a chutney, you can serve it with sweet tamarind chutney.
