Preparation for stuffing
Pressure cook potatoes, peel the skin and cut it into cubes or mash it slightly.
Finely chop onions, ginger and green chilli.
Add cubed potatoes, coriander leaves and mix well. Switch off the flame.
Add few drops of lemon juice to taste. Now our potato stuffing is ready.
We will proceed to prepare the samosas –
What you need – oil for deep frying samosas
Now repeat the same process for the rest of the dough. All the samosas are sitting (pic below) waiting to be fried in oil.
Now you can make lovely samosas just like you get in hotels and road side stalls at your home itself.
Serve Samosa with green chutney or tomato ketchup.

want want want
I am most decidedly not of Indian decent 🙂 This is my first time making anything Indian, so I thought I would start with my restaurant favorite. Your recipe looked easy to follow! They came out really well! The dough was SUPER easy (and I hate making dough). The only problem I came across is that the filling was a little less flavorful than I was hoping and used to. Perhaps next time I will use half the potato? It did make a LOT of filling! The flavors are definitely delicious, just not strong at all. Also, my filling is very dry.
Thank you so much for a successful first recipe! I can't wait to try other dishes on your blog!
I tried samosa,it was a blockbuster hit.We were out of samosa to stop eating it.Thank you so much.Good luck in posting new innovative recipes.
Tasty n easy receipe
Hi I made this today. The edges were crispy but the rest of the Samosa was tough and not so crispy. Did I fry too long ? Or did I not roll the dough thin enough? Please can you give me tips on improving the crispness? Thanks!
For crispy somosas, the rolled out dough should very thin.
It's really a nice recipe. I tried and it came out very well!
i am just a kid but i am going to try it.
Going to try this thanks for sharing.

I've just made your delicious potato filling! I'm using it in puffed pastry hand pies, which are baked with an egg wash on top for browning. I can tell you that they are amazing. I am making them for a NYE party tomorrow and wanted to let you know that baking is good too! Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe 🙂
Padhuji, samosas came out very well. Our family enjoyed them with tea. I made green chutney also. That became a hit. Thanks for the recipe.
If we use wheat flour instead of maida
