Samosa from Kawan Paratha

Samosas are yummy snacks/appetizers to have but often not considered a regular option to prepare at home mainly because of efforts required. If you ever thought about preparing it but gave up thinking its tough then here is a relatively easy way. The trick is, use ready made frozen parathas (ex: Kawan is one of the known brand here in US) as your outer samosa layer. So all you need is prepare the stuffing. Thaw the frozen parathas for few mins, cut them into half or quarter pieces based on your intended somosa size, fill the stuffs and you are ready for baking or you can deep fry it too. 














So here is the recipe.. Hope you like the recipe.

Ingredients:
2-3 potatoes boiled
1 carrot chopped
green peas a handful
1 tblsp gingergarlic crushed
1/4cup chopped onion
2-3 green chillies chopped
fresh curry leaves 
red chilli powder 1tsp
cumin-coriander powder 1tsp
roasted fennel seeds powder a pinch
garam masala 1 tsp
turmeric powder-a pinch
amchur powder as per your taste
oil 2 tblsp
1tsp cumin-mustard seeds
salt to taste
chopped coriander leaves
Frozen khawan parathas (4-5)

method:

Microwave carrots for 2 min and peas for 1 min. Roughly mash the boiled potatoes. 
Heat oil in a pan. Splutter cumin-mustard seeds.
Add chopped onion, green chilli, curry leaves to it. Saute till onions are translucent. Add crushed ginger garlic. saute for 2-3 min till raw smell goes away. 
Add turmeric powder, fennel seeds powder, cumin-coriander seeds powder , garam masala, amchur powder and salt. 
Saute it and now add boiled potatoes, peas and carrots. Mix well. saute for 8-10 min in a low flame till masalas are well coated with veggies. sprinkle some coriander leaves and your masalas are now ready for samosa stuffing. let it cool for some time.



Preheat oven to 350 F .

Cut paratha into half, place filling at one side and fold like a pastry, use a fork or knife to press the edges to  seal.

Brush  melted butter/ milk over pastry.
Bake for 15 -18 minutes or until golden brown.  I baked them for 15 mins and broil them for 2 min for nice golden color. 

Your samosa is ready to devour with ketchup or sweet tamarind chutney.
