Tofu & Mixed Veggies Samosa

Dunno wat happened to sun god here, he is showing his head very rarely and the climate is super nasty here in Paris, two days back its raining like anything and today its suddenly too hot.People who went for summer vacation to the north part of France says that they spend a chilled summer vacation as its raining there so much frequently.

I prepared this tofu mixed veggies samosa for our evening snacks two days back, while it raining outside like anything as everyone at home love to enjoy deep fried foods when the weather is too down.I tried a quick and easy filling with cubed extra firm tofu and mixed veggies like carrot,potato and bellpepper,spiced with usual spice powders. These crispy samosas tastes simply awesome when served with a cup of hot coffee.My kids enjoyed these beauties with ketchup and they just loved it.Sending to Celebrate-Olympic Games guest hosted by me and to Vardhini's Dish it Out-Paneer/Tofu & Bellpeppers guest hosted by Usha.


For dough:
1cup All purpose flour
1tsp Ajwain seeds
1/2tsp 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..

Tofu & Veggies Masala:
1cup Extra firm tofu (cubed)
2cups Mixed veggies (chopped carrot,potato & bellpepper)
1no Onion(big & chopped)
1tsp Red chilly powder
1/2tsp Garam masala 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 the onions turns transculent.

Add the veggies,cubed tofu,cook for few minutes,finally add  red chilly powder, garam masala powder and salt, sauté everything for few minutes.

Springle some water, cook everything in simmer until the masala turns thick and veggies gets well cooked,put off the stove and let them get cool completely..

Make tiny balls from the dough, dust with  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 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 15-20numbers of this 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 or coffee..
