Tips To Make Simple Samosa Recipe

 

  • Amount Of Moian: To make perfectly crispy samosa at home, you have to strictly follow maida and oil ratio of 5:1; here I use 60 ml oil for 300 grams of maida, beyond this samosa crust may break while frying, similarly less oil make samosa crust hard.  

 

  • Cooking Method: At first, heat the oil in medium flame when oil is hot enough then add the samosa and fry them in the medium-low flame till it becomes slightly golden brown. In this way, you not only make samosa crispy but also does not form any blister on samosa crust.

 

  • Perfect Samosa Dough: For preparing a crispy samosa recipe dough must be stiff and nonsticky, and most importantly it should be rest for at least 30 min before making samosa shape and filling.

 

  • Thickness Of Samosa : Make sure to prepare samosa sheets in equal medium thickness size, too thick will become uncooked from inside similarly too thin samosa will easily break-in oil.
