Step 6 – Now take a ball of dough and roll it out very thinly and cut into half. Now wet the straight side with a little water using your fingertips.
Step 7 – Fold it in such a way that you get a cone First bring one edge to the centre, then bring the other and place it overlapping the first. Now you will get a cone. Fill the cone with potato stuffing. stick together and fold it. If there is excess length at the back, you can make a pleat and then fold it to form a triangle. Make it sit and shape it nicely. You can make a design using a fork.
Step 8 – Now heat oil in a kadhai .To check if the oil is hot enough, drop a small piece of dough into the oil, if it raises to the surface immediately, then the oil is hot enough to fry the samosa. Now reduce the flame to medium and maintain the same oil temperature throughout frying. Drop 2-3 samosa into the oil gently and fry both sides until golden Brown.
