Course: Snack
Cuisine: Indian
Servings: 30 mini samosa


  • 2 Potato Large
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 teaspoon Red chilli powder I used my sambar powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Garam masala powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Fennel seeds powder
  • teaspoon Turmeric powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Amchur powder / Chaat masala Optional
  • Salt - As needed
  • 2 teaspoon Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin seeds
  • 2 tablespoon Coriander leaves chopped - 2 tbsp
  • 8 Spring roll pastry sheets Large size
  • 2 tablespoon All purpose flour Maida


  • Firstly keep pastry sheet at room temperature 30 mins prior preparing the samosa.
  • Meanwhile, boil and peel potatoes.
  • Heat kadai with oil and temper with cumin seeds.
  • Then add finely chopped onion, followed by the cooked, mashed potatoes.
  • After that, in goes all the masala powders in the ingredients, with salt and sprinkle a tablespoon of water.
    1 teaspoon Red chilli powder, ¼ teaspoon Garam masala powder, ¼ teaspoon Fennel seeds powder, ⅛ teaspoon Turmeric powder, ¼ teaspoon Amchur powder / Chaat masala
  • Mix well furthermore for 2 minutes in medium flame, lastly add coriander leaves, mix well.
  • Transfer to the serving bowl and cool down.
  • Now, mix all purpose flour (maida) with water to make it a paste. Keep all the ingredients ready.
  • By now the sheets would have been ready for preparing. Peel off one by one carefully.
  • Hint: Keep covered with clean wet kitchen cloth to keep it damp and avoid drying as instructed in the pack.
  • Cut each sheet to 4 equal sized strips as shown in the picture. Spoon a teaspoon of the prepared potato masala in each strip, over the top.
  • Fold as shown in the picture into triangle samosas. Refer video to learn in detail how to fold it.
  • Towards the end spread little maida paste and end sticking the samosa.
  • Keep the prepared samosas covered as well.
  • If you do not have spring roll pastry sheets, you can do the same with maida.
  • Make a stiff dough with 1 cup maida, a tablespoon of oil, salt and water.
  • Keep aside for an hour, knead and make equal sized balls.
  • Roll as thin as possible and cut into square. Use oil half way while rolling in one side to make rolling easy without getting shrunken.
  • Do not make this long (large) as if you fold lot, it won't get cooked inside and will become chewy.
  • Follow the same procedure as above and fold to triangles. But make the strips shorter.
  • Once everything is folded, heat oil and deep fry both sides in medium flame.
  • Once golden in colour, drain in paper towels. You can see both the pastry sheet samosas and the maida dough samosas below.



  • If you do not have fennel powder, instead of tempering with jeera, temper with fennel. Or just skip it and add more garam masala powder.
