Spinach Potato Samosa

Seriously its really hard to feed greens to kids, but thank god my kids love greens very much especially spinach. They just love it to the core. I can add spinach in anything and my kids can have them without any hesitation. Obviously i'll cook spinach atleast twice a week for our lunch. Recently i tried adding some chopped spinach in samosa along with potatoes. Trust me these spinach potato samosa was a big hit among my dearies and they enjoyed thoroughly with their favourite sauce.

Usually i'll avoid deepfrying samosas and go for the guilt free baked ones, but this time i opted for deepfrying. Dunno how to feed greens to your kids, just give a try to this fantastic crispy samosas, am sure your kids will definitely enjoy these deep fried beauties.Sending to Viji's SYS-W series - Hidden Ingredients.




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

Stuffing:
2nos Potatoes (cooked & mashed)
1cup Chopped spinach
1no Carrot (chopped finely)
1tsp Red chilly powder
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
1tsp Cumin seeds
Oil
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.

Heat enough oil,let crack the cumin seeds, add the chopped spinach, chopped carrots, saute until the veggies gets half cooked.

Add now the spice powder, mashed potatoes and salt, cook everything in simmer for few minutes, put off the stove.

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 spinach potato masala 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..
