Sautee all the ingredients starting with the veggies in a pan with 3 tsp oil.
Start adding the powders when onions becomes translucent.
Once the raw smell of goes off, stuffing is ready.
Knead all the ingredients with enough water just like you make chappatis. :- But dough should be hard enough(not very pliable) to hold the stuffing.
Cover the dough ball with a damp cloth and keep aside for 15 minutes.
Divide the dough ball into small balls of even size.
Dust the counter top with flour and roll out each of these balls into around 3 cm diameter.
Take the small rotis and shape into a cone(just like the ones peanut vendor makes using paper).
Press the cone tip with your finger, so that it is sealed.
Take a tablespoon or more of the filling and keep in the cone.
Seal the cone by gently folding the open end of the sheet.(Tip:- you can damp the end with water and press).
In a pan, add enough oil for frying and once hot fry the samosas 2 at a time to a golden brown color.
Drain oil in a paper towel and enjoy with ketchup or coriander chutney.
