Easy to make Tortilla Veggie Samosa
Samosas, traditionally they are made of All-purpose flour also known as maida. But, here’s is a simple and easy way to make samosa for either beginners or bachelors that want to avoid the kneading of the dough and rolling. Tortillas make this process of making samosas very easy and simple. Tortillas are made of whole wheat and maize (corn) flour so this is a healthier choice of wrap then maida (all-purpose flour). Let me share a recipe that you will enjoy making and eating.
A little bit about the “Samosa”. Normally, they are made with maida (all-purpose flour) stuffed with the traditional mashed potato mixture and fried till golden brown and served up with fresh chutney, such as Coriander Chutney, mint chutney or tamarind sauce. Samosa can be served up as an appetizer, snack, lunch or just food on the go. Samosas can be plated up with other dishes like: Samosa and chana or Samosa chat.
Tortilla Vegetable Samosas
Flour tortilla: 10 (Size-6 inches),
2 Medium size potatoes: peeled and chopped finely
1 Medium size Onion chopped finely
½ cup - Green peas
½ cup - Carrot: chopped into tiny pieces
Fresh Coriander leafs chopped : 6 springs chopped finely
1 tbsp - Garlic Paste
1 tbsp - Ginger Paste:
½ tsp - Red chilly powder: adjust to taste
½ tsp - Garam masala powder
2 tsp - Coriander powder:
½ squeezed - Lemon juice:
1 tsp - Cumin seeds:
Salt to taste
2 tbsp - All-purpose flour
2 tsp - Oil
Oil for frying
Heat the pan at medium heat and add oil once oil hot add cumin seeds.
Add in the Garlic/Ginger paste. Cook for 1 minute. Then add in the chopped onion mix and cook till light pink about 1 minute.
Then add in chopped potatoes, carrots and peas. Mix well and cover and cook. In between keep stirring to avoid it from burning.
Once the vegetables are half way cooked add in the spices: Red Chilli Powder, Coriander Powder and lemon juice mix and let it cook covered for another 5 minutes. Stir in between.
Once all vegetables cooked add in the salt to taste and Garam Masala and mix well. Lightly with your spoon or spatula mash the vegetables.
Now add the chopped Fresh Coriander leafs and give a final mix. At this point make sure to do a taste test and adjust spices or salt to your preference.
Transfer the mixture in a bowl and let them cool completely.
In a bowl mix together flour and water together and make a thick paste.
Now cut tortillas in half. Fold one corner to the other corner to form a cone shape and seal the edges of the tortilla with flour paste.
Stuff vegetable filling inside and seal all the surfaces properly using flour paste. Fill all samosa and make sure to keep the filled samosa cover with a cloth or tissue paper to avoid drying out.
Now heat oil on medium heat for deep fry. Once oil is hot add in the samosas carefully. Turning occasionally till they become golden brown and crispy.
Samosas are ready and can be served up with some tamarind sauce or ketchup.
You can add fresh green chilly paste or chopped instead of red chilli powder.
You can add any other vegetable of your choice or substitute the existing from the recipe. Can use frozen pea and carrots.
Vegetable mixture should be completely cooled down before stuffing.
Make sure that all sides and corners of the tortilla are properly sealed before deep frying them.
Keep sufficient oil in pan to ensure that samosas float in oil and don't touch the surface.
