  • Mix the boiled peas with the whole potatoes and then throw some coriander leaves.
  • Add the dries including red chili, salt, garam masala powder, and mango powder to season your filling mixture.
  • Now divide the dough and roll each part with the rolling pin into a long samosa Patti.
  • Fill each of them with the potato filling in the center, shape it like samosa and then seal the edges with butter.
  • Heat the oil in a large frying Kadai and deep fry your samosas until golden browned. Drain the oil from your samosas.
