Ajwain Samosas With Potato & Soya Masala

Its non stop snow here and we guys need some deep fried fritters to enjoy with a cup of coffee while its snack time here, today i prepared this mini and delicious ajwain samosas using potato and soya chunks masala as filling..These tiny samosas tastes marvellous when served along with a cup of tea, ajwain added in the outer layer gives a beautiful flavour while having at the same time helps for easy digestion, needless to say once i fried these mini samosas, they just vanished within few minutes..U doesnt even need to serve them with ketchup and kids will definitely love this mini samosas since they were cute and easy to eat with a healthy filling prepared just with smashed potatoes and scrambled soya chunks along with onions and few spices...

Ajwain Samosas

For Ajwain Dough:
1cup All purpose flour
1tsp Ajwain seeds
1tsp Baking powder
Salt
1tbsp Olive oil

Knead everything with enough water as a smooth and soft dough, keep aside closed with a damp cloth for an hour..

Potato & Soya Masala:
2nos Potatoes
25nos Soya chunks (cooked & grounded)
1no Onion(big & chopped)
1tsp Red chilly powder
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
1tsp Coriander powder
Few curry leaves
Salt
Oil
1/2tsp Cumin seeds

Heat enough oil,let crack the cumin seeds, add immediately the chopped onions, curry leaves, sauté until they turns transculent, add now the grounded soya chunks, red chilly powder, garam masala powder, salt and coriander powder, sauté everything for few minutes.

Finally add the smashed cooked potatoes, cook everything in simmer,put off the stove and let them get cool completely..

Make tiny balls from the dough, dust with few flour and roll them as circles, cut in the middle of the circles, make two demi cricles, just fold the sides to make a cone, now gently put some already prepared potato and soyachunks masala inside the cone, press the sides tightly until they gets sticks.

Continue the process until the masala and dough get finished, u can get almost 35-40numbers of this mini samosas..Also u can stick the edges by using a simple flour and water paste..

Heat enough oil for deepfrying, gently drop the samosas, fry until they turns golden brown,enjoy with ketchup or with a cup of tea..

  25. It is definitely healthy and there is another option of making it more healthy by baking the samosas instead of frying.
