Onion Samosa / Mini Samosa

Second Day of Blogging Marathon #20 , under the theme Cooking with Onion.Once i selected the theme i got Onion Bajji only in my mind!!When i talked with Sangee of Spicy Treats , she said she'll be making Onion Samosa for the theme.Fortunately she didn't post it  :) , she posted some other three interesting recipes with onion..So i gave my try!!It tasted really good,using onion n frying in oil,makes a wonderful flavour!I had these type of small Samosa'a in Chennai earlier..Now to the recipe,

Recipe Source : Here
  1. Wheat Flour-1 cup
  2. Maida - 1 cup
  3. Oil-1 table spoon
  4. Salt
  5. Water- little
For stuffing (Inside the samosa) :
  1. Onion- 1 small cup (Diced)
  2. Poha-1 small cup
  3. Salt- totaste
  4. Chilli Powder
  5. Cumin Powder
  6. Green Chilly- 2 nos (Chopped )
  7. Cilantro -  1 tablespoon (Chopped) 

  • Take a wider bowl add maida,wheat flour ,oil and salt.Give a nice mix in hands.
  • Add little water at the time ,and make a soft dough.Cover and rest it for 15 mins.
  • In another bowl,mix all stuffing ingredients and mix well.Keep it aside.
  • Take a small cup/bowl add one tablespoon of maida and little water,mix well.Make it to a nice paste.
  • Now,make a thin chapathi out of the dough,using some dry flour.
  • Heat a chapathi pan,once it hot put the rolled chapathi for 10 secs in each side, and take it out.Do the same for all remaining dough.Don't over cook it.
  • Now,cut the chapathi's in to a 2 and half inched ribbon.Trim the edges.
  • Apply the maida paste in one side of the ribbon.Gently make it in to a cone.Keep the onion poha stuffing.
  • Apply the maida paste again , before folding and covering the Samosas.Seal well in all the edges.Do the same with all remaining things.Make it in to small Cocktail Samosas.
  • Medium heat the  oil in deep frying pan/Kadai.Once it hot,add in samosa's 4 - 4 at a time and half fry and remove it.Cool it for 5 mins.Then fry the samosa's again to get a more tasty and nice color.
  • Drain it in kitchen towl, serve it hot /Worm with or with out any side dish.

  • Onion by itself will lose moisture.So it will lose crispness ,serve it immediately.
  • Before storing allow the samosa's get down to cool.Then store it in air tight box/zip lock bag.
  • Store this Samosa's only for 2-3 in fridge.
