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.

Making Potato Stuffing:

Take a pan and heat up oil in it. Add cumin seeds then add ginger garlic paste, red chili powder, red chili flakes, Salt and turmeric powder. Add 1 tbsp. water and cook on medium flame for 3 – 4 minutes. Keep stirring. Now add mashed potatoes and boiled peas. Mix them well with all the spices.

Making Potato Samosa:

Take the samosa dough and divide it into equal balls of 2 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 potato stuffing. Now press the top corners together to seal your samosa. Repeat this process with all dough balls.

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 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.
