  2. Add coriander and keep aside to cool.

To Proceed :
  1. Make small rolls of dough and roll it into a 5"-6" diameter circle.
  2. Cut it into two parts like semi-circle.
  3. Now take one semi circle and fold it like a cone. Use water while doing so.
  4. Place one or two spoon of filling in the cone and seal the third side by applying water on the edge.
  5. Heat oil in a wok and deep fry till golden brown (fry on a medium flame).
  6. Serve samosa hot with chutney/ ketchup.

For fried chili:
Green Chilies-5 nos
Salt- pinch to sprinkle
Oil-1 tsp to fry.

 Method of preparation:
    1. Slit the green chilies and fry them in hot oil for few seconds.
    2. Drain on paper towel and add salt to it. Serve as a spicy side for samosa.
   1. Any veg of your choice can be used.
   2. Raisins and nuts can be used for rich taste.
   3. Do not use more water while kneading. Samosas wont be crispy then.
   4. You can add 2 tsp of corn flour while kneading the dough to make the samosas crispy.
   5. While rolling the dough it would be hard to roll as water used is less, but this helps to make samosa                crispy.
