Directions For Making Dry Samosa

  1. Heat 1½ tablespoons oil in a small kadai (pan) to roast all stuffing ingredients. Add dry coconut, coriander seeds, fennel seeds, cashew nuts, almonds, raisins, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, garam masala and dry mango powder; sauté them over low flame for 1 minute.
  2. Add crushed gathiya, sugar and salt. Mix and roast dry stuffing mixture for a minute. Turn off flame and transfer it to a bowl. Let it cool for 5 minutes. Dry fruit mixed stuffing for dry samosa is ready.
  3. Mix maida, salt and 3 tablespoons oil in a large bowl. Knead a semi-stiff dough (like paratha dough) by adding lukewarm water as needed.
  4. Divide dough into 9 equal portions and give them a shape of ball (like medium size lemon). Roll out each ball in to thick circular puri having approx. 5-6 inch diameter. Cut it straight through center and divide it into two equal parts.
  5. Give each part a shape of cone as shown in the picture.
  6. Put approx 1-2 teaspoons stuffing mixture in cone. Lightly wet open edges of cone with water and press them to seal properly.
  7. Heat oil over low flame for deep frying. When it is sufficiently hot, carefully slide or drop 5-6 stuffed triangles in oil and deep fry them over low flame until they turn light brown. Deep fry remaining stuffed triangles. Crispy and spicy dry samosas are ready. Serve them with tea or coffee. You can store it for 15 days in an air tight container at room temperature.
