For the pastry
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup oil or ghee
  • A pinch of salt
  • Water, as needed
For the filling (Follow our recipe for the potato mixture in Aloo Tikki Chaat Toast)
  • 2 medium potatoes, boiled and chopped into small cubes
  • 1 cup peas (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, grated
  • 2 green chilies, finely chopped (adjust to taste)
  • 3-4 tbsp Chaat Party
  • 1tsp Cumin seeds 
  • S&P to taste
  • Oil for frying




  1. Prepare the Pastry:

    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and a pinch of salt
    • Gradually add the oil or ghee while mixing, until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs
    • Slowly add water and knead to form a smooth, stiff dough. Cover it and let it rest for at least 30 minutes
  2. Prepare the Filling:

    • Boil cubed potatoes in salted boiling water until fork tender and once cooked mash them up in a bowl with salt
    • Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a pan on medium heat. Add cumin seeds if using and let them splutter for about 1-2 minutes
    • Add the chopped onions and sauté until golden brown
    • Add the minced garlic, grated ginger, and chopped green chilies. Sauté for another minute
    • Add the mashed potatoes and peas and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally
    • Add 3-4 tablespoons of Chaat Party and s&p and mix well 
    • Cook for another 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and let the filling cool
  3. Assemble the Samosas:

    • Divide the dough into equal portions and roll each portion into a ball Roll out each ball into a thin oval or circle, about 6-8 inches in diameter
    • Cut each circle in half to form two semi-circles
  4. Forming the Samosas:

    • Take one semi-circle and fold it into a cone shape, sealing the edge with a little water
    • Fill the cone with the vegetable filling, being careful not to overfill
    • Seal the open edge of the cone to form a triangular samosa. Press the edges firmly to ensure they're sealed
  5. Frying the Samosas:

    • Heat enough oil in a deep pan or pot for deep frying. Test if it's hot enough by dropping a small piece of dough in; if it sizzles and rises to the surface, it's ready
    • Gently slide in the samosas, a few at a time, and fry until they turn golden brown, turning occasionally. This should take about 5-7 minutes per batch
  6. Drain and Serve:

    • Remove the samosas with a slotted spoon and place them on paper towels to remove excess oil
    • Serve hot with cilantro mint chutney, tamarind chutney, or your favorite sauce


  • You can customize the filling with your favorite vegetables like adding carrots, tomatoes, green beans or add some minced meat like beef, pork or chicken for a non-vegetarian version. Enjoy your homemade vegetable samosas, they are so good!!
