Minced Chicken-Spring onions samosa

Posted on Updated on


Homemade chicken samosa – Ramadan special samosa is one of the favorite dish made in Muslim homes for Iftar.
This crisy and cruncy samosa’s can be prepared even with any veggie stuffing like potatoes ,carrots and peas.
Since its a month of ramadan , I prefer using minced chicken(you can even use minced meat instead).It also makes
the best party dishes as its universally loved by everyone 🙂 The un-fried prepared samosas can be refrigerated for a couple of days, this makes it quite easier during Ramadan. An hour before breaking the fast it can be deep fried and can be served warm.And remember one thing at start your samosa might get distorted , but “Practice makes perfect samosa” so never give up 🙂  am sharing the recipe for making chicken samosas with you all, a perfect treat for everyone during Ramadan and on any day.
Have a blessed Ramadan everyone!

For filling samosa

1.I use the ready made samosa patti sheets, Peel off one by one carefully. Keep covered with clean wet kitchen cloth to keep it damp and avoid drying.

2.Fold as shown in the picture into triangle samosas. Refer video to learn in detail how to fold it. Once the triangle shape pocket is ready , fil in 1 to 2 tbsp of
prepared chicken stuffing into it.

3.Towards the end spread little wheat paste and end sticking the samosa.

4.Keep the prepared samosas covered as well, preferable with wet kitchen cloth for this too.

5.Once all the samosa’s, heat oil and deep fry both sides in medium flame.

6. Fry till the samosas turn golden brown in color.

7. Transfer to a kitchen paper towel.

8. Seve warm along with tomato ketchup or chili sauce or any green chutney.

Notes
Instead of adding all the spices, you could even cook the chicken using store bought meat masala.
The stuffed unfried dough can be refrigerated for a few days, thaw well before frying.
