How to Make

  • Sift ragi flour in a ceramic bowl, add water and mix well to have the consistency of a pancake batter.
  • Cook the batter in the microwave for 30-40 sec. Remove from the microwave and allow it to cool.
  • Knead semi-hard dough by adding more ragi flour, ajwain, and salt, then let it rest.
  • Heat a pan, sauté cumin until it begins to sizzle. Add ginger, green chilies, cashew nut, and raisins.
  • Cook for another 1-2mins. Quickly add chopped cucumbers, turmeric powder, boiled peas, potatoes to the pan.
  • Mix everything well and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Season with salt.
  • Add fresh coriander and mint leaves.
  • Set aside to cool down for later use.
  • Divide the dough into small circles and then flatten it to oval or oblong shapes and cut into half.
  • Smear water over edges and join them to make a cone. Fill the cone with the mixture and close the edges.
  • Heat oil in a pan and fry the Samosas until done. Drain them on kitchen paper towel and serve with tamarind or mint chutney.
