Indian snack recipe for Christmas


Please watch the video for ingredients.



Add flour to a container. Add salt and mix it in properly. 

Add 3 tablespoon of cooking oil and rub it in until well incorporated. 

Add water in little amounts until all the flour is incorporated into the dough. Knead for about 5 minutes. 

Cover it with a plastic bag for 15 minutes. 

Divide it into smaller portions. Roll the portions into a diameter of 7 inches each. 

Apply oil and sprinkle some flour onto the rolled dough.

 Roll another dough and place it on top of the first dough. 

Apply oil and sprinkle some flour on top of it, do this for like 5-6 pieces of rolled dough. 

Roll the pieces altogether to a diameter of ten inches. 

Make patterns using your finger on the tip of the final rolled dough to help see when the dough is ready for peeling while cooking.

Place the sheets of dough on your cooking pan. 

Keep tapping the dough as it cooks, to help them join together. 

Carefully peel off the first sheet of dough. Cut them into four pieces each. 

Cover them with polythene paper to avoid them drying up. 

Make a thick paste using flour and water to help the samosas stick together. 

Take one of the quarters and place it with the circular edge facing you and fold it into half. 

Apply glue on that top edge then fold the other part up, pressing the tip down so that it does not let in oil. 

Fill it up to three quarters, to allow the other quarter to help with folding the inner flap. 

Apply glue on the exposed part then cover it all up, ensuring that you pinch all the corners so as not to let in oil while frying. 

Put the samosas into the ready heated oil and fry until golden brown in colour. 

Cook for about 2-3 minutes per side then place them on kitchen paper to absorb the excess oil. Ready to be served.
