onion samosa

2.In another bowl add flour and water to make a glue like consistency which is needed to seal the  ends.Take the readymade sheet out from fridge and keep it in room temperature  for at least 30 mins before making it.

3.Take a pastry sheet and place small amount of the filling on one side.and keep folding in form of a triangle till the end and at the end apply the flour paste and stick it.Repeat the same for all sheets..

4.Heat oil a pan and drop the prepared samosa, 3 or 4 at a time don't crowd it.Fry it well and when done drain excess oil in a paper towel.

Serve hot with ketchup  as side for tea/coffee.


1.For home made sheets :

 add flour/maida,salt ,oil  and mix well.Slowly add water and make a non stick dough similar to chapathi dough.Make balls and roll it in to thin sheets,cut in form of  rectangle  to make samosa/spring roll pastry sheets.

2.If the filling oozes out water add little poha/aval to it which will absorb the water.
