FOR THE FILLING
350gm ground chicken
1medium onion chopped
1medium potato chopped
½teaspoonsalt or according to your taste
1green chili deseeded and chopped
½teaspoongaram masala powder
TO FRY THE SAMOSA
Enough oil to deep fry the samosas
FOR THE DOUGH
2tablespoonGhee or melted butter
¼cupwarm water you may need lessthe dough should be a little firm.
MAKING THE FILLING
In a pan, add the ghee and when hot add the onion and sauté until translucent.
Now add the potatoes and sauté for two minutes. Add the ground chicken and cook for three minutes on medium high heat.
Add the spices and stir for one minute.
Reduce the heat and cook until the chicken is cooked, and the potatoes are soft.
Note: You can add half a cup of boiling water to the filling if it is getting too dry and is not thoroughly cooked yet.
MAKING THE DOUGH
In a bowl, add all the ingredients (except water) and mix well.
Gradually add the water and knead until you get a smooth and not sticky dough. The dough should have a little firmness to it.
Cover the dough and let it rest for 15 to 20 minutes.
PREPARING THE SAMOSA
Make 4 equal balls from the dough. Take one ball and roll with the rolling pin into a medium thickness circle around 6 inches. (You won’t need flour to roll this dough).
Use a knife to cut the circle in half.
Take one-half and fold into a cone — seal along the fold.
Place this cone between your thumb and index finger. Fill the cone with the filling, might take two tablespoons or little less.
Wet the edges of the dough with water and pinch to seal (I sealed the dough without adding water, and it didn’t open while frying but make sure to pinch firmly. Now you should have a triangle shaped samosa. Repeat this step with the rest of the dough and filling.
Cover the samosa with a cloth and keep it aside for 20 minutes in a cool place. This step helps the samosa to have fewer bubbles on the pastry when frying, but you can skip it and immediately fry the samosa.
In a medium pan, heat the frying oil. Add the samosas but do not crowd the pan. Fry on medium heat until the samosa is golden brown. The frying time may take from 7 to 8 minutes, depending on the size of the samosa.
