Onion Samosa

These onion samosas are my all time favorite snack. Also favorite for many of my school friends. We used to get these hot samosas in our school canteen and its tastes heavenly. Few days back while I was chatting with my school friends, we were recollecting our old memories, and it was my friends who suggested to try these samosas. Thanks to them, I tried it and the end result was too good.

It was very crispy and the onions inside were very crunchy. With very few ingredients, we can make this samosa for a tea time snack. Also they used to sell these in any road side tea shops. It's a favorite snack for many. Kids will love these as they are deep fried and also they are very crispy and crunchy.


For making wrap:
Maida/All purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tbsp

For stuffing:
Onion - 1 (chopped lenghtwise)
Flattened rice/Poha/Aval - 1/4 cup
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Cilantro/Corriander leaves - 1/2 bunch (finely chopped)
Salt - to taste

Maida - 2 tbsp
Water - 3 tbsp
Oil - for deep frying


1) In a bowl, put all the ingredients for making wrap and mix well.

2) Knead the flour by adding water little by little. Make a thick dough of it. Cover it and keep aside for about 20 to 30 minutes.

3) Now prepare the filling. In a bowl, place all ingredints. Just give a gentle mix and keep it aside for 15 minutes. (While adding salt to onion, it leaves water and thats why we are adding poha in this)

4) Now make a medium ball size dough and spread it by applying some flour. Make it thin, so that you can get crispy samosas.

5) Now trim the sides and make square like shape.

6) Then cut across and get rectangles. If you make very big size chapathis, you can get about 3 rectangles even.

7) Now place 1 tbsp of the stuffing in one corner, leaving some space in the corners. Please bare my clicks :(

8) Take that corner nearby and place it one the other side as in the picture.

9) Meanwhile mix maida in water and keep aside. Now use that maida paste to stick the corners of the sides. Then again fold to the other end and stick all corners.

10) Spread all the dough and keep the stuffing and fold it. Keep it aside.

11) Now heat oil in a fan for deep frying the samosas. Once the oil is hot, drop 2 or 3 samosas for frying. Do not make it too clumpsy.

12) Fry till its turns brown in color. It takes about 3 minutes to get well cooked. Remove from the oil and place in paper towel.

Crispy, crunchy and yummy samosas are ready to taste.
