Samosas are just my favorite snack.Its one of my favorite and a best secret recipe that I have ever tried. Everyone loves it at my home esp. when I prepare it, they all simply love it. I prepare it in a different way not the usual way of preparing samosas though. Most of them mash potatoes and add other vegetables to it put masalas to it and prepare its filling but I prepare it in entirely different way.
I want to share in one more secret with all of you.This recipe helped me to impress an Interviewer from Infosys during my Placement at Infosys!!!!!!!She was fully impressed with my answers. 
Most of them know that we have personnel interviews at Infosys once you have cleared your Aptitude exams. I was very nervous when I got through first round and was selected for the interviews. When it was my turn for the interview I was wondering what sort of questions I will be asked to answer them.
When I entered the interview cabin I noticed there was only one interviewer and she was a pretty and a polite lady going through my resume thoroughly. She was happy that I was good with my academics she asked many questions regarding it how do I manage time? How do I study...etc.She asked me an interesting question What sets you aside from others Priyanka?,I said CREATIVITY. She said to elaborate : I told her Maam I like Mehendi designing a lot its my prime interest and love cooking and experiment the same recipe in many different ways and to see which tastes better. She was fully impressed asked Whats your favorite recipe that you prepare Priyanka? My instant reply was SAMOSAS. She said its very difficult to prepare it rite.
I said no maam its very easy to prepare it. She asked what is my secret ingredient, that makes my samosas crispier .I explained her (will let you know shortly) she was very satisfied and happy with my answers she asked for a treat at my home some day and I told her yes she was welcome at any time. She smiled at me when we met outside after all the interviews, I got a feeling then that I m selected .When results were out I was the one among them the 60 lucky ones.yay!!!!!.
Let me share my secret recipe of samosas with you all…….
a) For Preparation of the Inner filling for samosas..
·         2 ½ tsp of Garam Masala Powder
·         ¾ tsp of chopped garlic
·         ¼ tsp of chopped ginger
·         1 ½ tsp of Cumin seeds
·         5 tsp of Coconut oil
·         ½ cup of sliced Onion pieces
·         4 finely chopped Green chilies (I added ¼ cup of sliced capsicum to it ,it gives a different flavor and I just love it you can also add it if you prefer or else its ok you can skip it.)
·         ½ cup of chopped Carrot pieces
·         ½ cup of chopped Beans
·         ½ cup of soaked Green peas
·         ¼ cup of chopped Beetroot
·         1 full Potato
·         1 full tsp of Salt powder
·         ¼ tsp of Pepper powder
·         ½ cup of chopped coriander leaves
·         1 glass of water
b) For preparation of Dough to cover the prepared fillings
·      ¾ cup of Maida Powder
·      ¼ cup of Wheat flour
·      1-2 tsp of Coconut oil
·      ½ tsp of salt powder
·      ½ tsp of Sugar
·      ½ glass of water
c) 1 cup of Coconut oil or any vegetable oil for deep frying purpose
Lets get started with the preparation of soft n crisp samosas
1) Lets prepare the dough first, Take a medium sized bowl add half glass of water nearly or less than half a glass to this add salt and sugar and stir it well.
2) Now add Maida and Wheat flour to it and keep stirring it till it becomes a medium sized ball of dough then add Coconut oil and bind the ball of dough properly. Keep this aside and start preparing the filling for Samosas.

3) Boil the vegetables like Carrot, full Potato, Beans, Green Peas and Beetroot along with a glass of water in the pressure cooker for about 10 minutes after the first whistle.
3) Take a small Kadai or a pan keep it over the low flame and then add Coconut oil to it (you can also add ghee to it) and Cumin seeds until it starts spluttering.
4) After the Cumin seeds starts to splutter add the Onion + Green Chilies + finely chopped ginger and garlic (I also added capsicums to it ) to it sauté it with salt powder(TIP: If you sauté the Onion with Salt it will get roasted to light brown very soon).
5) Once the Onion start to turn its color to light brown add 2 ½ tsp of Garam masala (you can add chat masala as well but I dont add it).
6) Add Pepper powder to it Mix it well.
7) Add in the boiled vegetables (mash in the potato before you put vegetables to kadai).Cook for about five minutes.
8) Mix them properly (I add a little fresh cumin seeds and chop garlic a little it does taste good) and put the flame off. Add Coriander leaves to the Filling prepared.
9) Start making small balls out of the samosas dough and now start to use your belan and make these small balls turn into small rotis.
10) Add the filling to these small rotis and fold it in such a way that it looks in a form of triangular shape.
11) Heat the oil and deep fry these triangular shaped samosas in it.
12) Samosas after deep fry taken in white tissue to drain extra oil in it. Yummmmmmmmmy Samosas are ready to be tasted with tomato sauce or with green mint chutney.
It takes exactly half an hour to prepare it. I love it a lot .Its nice feeling that I get now after sharing my secret recipe with all my friends. Hope you love it as everyone does at my home.
Till I post in my next recipes eat healthy good food and stay fit……….
Thank you all once again
