However, samosas are also prepared with chicken and beef stuffing. In the month of Ramadan, people make one bite snacks which are easy to eat because of their smaller size. One bite chicken and cheese samosas are so much light and delicious. They are best to serve on Iftar and on a tea party. So let’s begin to make these one bite chicken and cheese samosas.
For Samosa Dough:
All-Purpose Flour: 1 Cup
Oil/Ghee: ¼ Cup
Salt: ½ tsp
Cumin Seeds: 1 tsp
Water: to knead dough
Cheddar Cheese (Shredded): ½ Cup
Mozzarella Cheese (Shredded): ½ Cup
Chicken (Boiled & Shredded): 1 Cup
Onion (Finely Chopped): 1 medium
Ginger Paste: 1 tsp.
Garlic Paste: 1 tsp.
Green Chili (Finely Chopped): 2 – 3
Fresh Coriander (Finely Chopped): 2 tbsp.
Red Chili Flakes: ½ tsp.
Red Chili Powder: ½ tsp.
Turmeric Powder: ¼ tsp.
Coriander Powder: ½ tsp.
Salt: ½ tsp.
Black Pepper: ½ tsp.
Vinegar: 1 tbsp.
Cumin seeds powder: ½ tsp.
Oil: ¼ cup
Kneading the Dough:
Take all-purpose flour in a bowl and add salt and cumin seeds in it. Mix it well with the help of your hands. Now add oil/ghee in the flour and rub it with your palms to make a flour and oil crumble. Now slowly add water and keep mixing it with your hand to make a smooth non-sticky dough. Cover it and keep it aside on room temperature for 15 – 20 minutes.
Method to Make Stuffing:
Take a deep frying pan and heat up oil in it. Add onion and fry till translucent in color. Now add ginger garlic paste and fry for a minute. Also add shredded chicken with all other spices i.e. Red Chili Flakes, Red Chili Powder, Turmeric Powder, Coriander Powder, Salt, Black Pepper, Vinegar and Cumin seeds powder. Add a little bit water to mix all dry spices and cook for 4 – 5 minutes on medium flame while stirring. In the end, add green chili and fresh coriander. Turn off the heat and let it cool on room temperature. Now mix shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese in the chicken and mix it well. Chicken and Cheese stuffing is ready to be stuffed into the one bite samosas.
Making One Bite Chicken and Cheese Samosas:
Take the samosa dough and divide it into equal balls of 1 inch diameter. Now roll out the dough ball on a flat surface to give it a round shape. Now cut it into two equal halves with the help of a knife. Take one half and fold it into a cone shape with your hand. Hold it properly so that it doesn’t open. Use a spoon to fill it with the chicken and cheese stuffing. Now press the top corners together to seal your samosa. Repeat this process with all dough balls. You can make around 14 one bite chicken and cheese samosas with this dough.
Now heat up the oil in a deep wok and fry samosas on medium low flame. Keep them stirring to avoid burning. Fry them until light golden in color. Take the one bite chicken and cheese samosas out from the oil and put them on a tissue paper to drain the excess oil. Serve them hot with green chatni, yogurt raita or with tomato ketchup.
