Microwave your Samosa !!

Ingredients :

For dough :

1. Wheat flour - 2 cup
2. Water
3. Ajwain - 1 tbs
4. Salt to taste

Procedure :

Mix all the above ingredients except water and mix it thoroughly. Now add little amount of water gradually and make a stiff dough. Keep it covered with a wet cloth for 10 minutes.

Ingredients :

For stuffing :

1. Potato (cut into small 1/2 inches pieces) - 2 medium size
2. Peas - 1/2 cup
3. Salt to taste
4. Oil - 1 tbs
5. Jeera - 1 tbs
6. Jeera powder- 2 tbs
7. Dry mango powder- 2 tbs
8. Green chilly cut into small pieces
9. Coriander (Dhania) powder- 1 tbs
10. Hing powder- 1/2 tsp

Procedure : 

First heat the oil in a pan and add jeera into it. When there would be a crackling sound of the jeeras, add green chilly, peas and potato and fry it for 2 -3 minutes.Now add all the masala powders and mix it well. Next add a little water so that the potatoes get cooked ( if you do not want to spend more time to cook the potatoes, you can boil them in a cooker with one whistle and then add to the mixture).When done remove it from the gas and let it cool down.Next take the dough and make elongated size rotis and cut the roti into two equal halves. Take one half and fold it like a cone and press the side of the cone so that it sticks (you  can also use few drops of  water to stick it). Now stuff the cone with the mixture and stick its ends in a samosa shape. Keep the samosas in a baking tray and bake in preheated oven (180 degree C)for 20 to 25 minutes turning them every 5 minutes. It will gradually turn out brown in color. Now serve them with Sauce and tamarind chutney.


  1. Do they get dry or hard? As a chef, I would be interested in trying this but I am unsure of the consistency. My man is very picky with Indian food and as yet, I have never disappointed. Your help is much appreciated.

  2. If you make proper dough with a little bit of stiffness and heat the samosas properly from all the sides then only you will get a crisp brown surface. It will not be hard. You need not necessarily heat the samosas for 20 to 25 minutes as the timing may vary for different microwaves. All you need is heat till the surface is brownish. I hope it helps.
