Onion Samosas

Onion samosas, love them very much. These onion samosas are my all time favorite snack.I tasted my first onion samosas long back when we went to beach with my parents. My mom will rarely buy finger foods and if she dont bring anything with her while going out, she will definitely get these crispy samosas from a usual onion samosa vendor.These samosas will be very crispy outside and the onions inside will be very crunchy.Thats makes the difference when compared to the other samosas.

With very few ingredients, we can make this samosa in a jiffy for a tea time snack. Kids will love these as they are deep fried and also at the same these samosas will be very crispy and crunchy.This samosas suits prefectly for a birthday party, a crowd pleaser, a prefect starter, thats why am sharing this beauties today as our this week's theme for blogging marathon is occasional and my choice is birthday party..Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#27.


Wrap:
1cup Maida 
1/2cup Wheat flour
Salt
2tbsp Oil

Stuffing:
2nos Onions (chopped lengthwise & finely)
1/2cup Flattened rice/poha
1tsp Chilly powder
3tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
1/4tsp Chaat masala powder
Salt

Paste:
2tbsp Maida
3tbsp water

Take the maida, wheat flour,salt and oil in a bowl, add gradually enough water and knead as soft and stiff dough,keep aside for half an hour.

In an another bowl, take the onions,poha,chilly powder, coriander leaves,garam masala powder,chaat masala powder and salt, mix everything well and keep aside for 20minutes.

Poha will absorb the water from onions,thats why we are adding poha in this stuffing.

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 onion,poha mixture inside the cone.

Meanwhile prepare the maida paste by mixing the flour and water together.

Use this maida paste  to stick the edges..continue the process until the masala and dough get finished..

Heat enough oil for deepfrying, gently drop the samosas, fry until they turns golden brown.

Enjoy with ketchup or with a cup of tea..
