Vegetable Samosa

After trying umpteen number of frozen samosas and fresh samosas from super market and restaurants I nearly lost the interest in eating samosas and least did I think of making it at home, can blame my laziness and hot oil phobias for that !

Since the weather here has been too chilly for kids for outdoor play ,we have a playdate arrangement going on every week and this time when friends came over to our place , I made some chocolate doughnuts and this samosas and they went down really well :) After all, on a chilly day who can say no to samosas with a hot cup of tea even if its a bit distorted ...bliss ! Earlier I only used to make my hubby and lil one wait for food till my photo session finishes but this time I didnt get time for clicking it before friends came, so I made them wait !

Ingredients ( makes 12 samosas )
For dough
Flour/Maida - 1 cup
Rice flour - 2 tbs
Ajwain - 1/2 tsp

For filling
Potatoes - 2 large
Green peas - 1/2 cup
Coriander leaves ( finely chopped) - few
Redchilly powder - 1tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Fennel seeds - 1/2 tsp

1.In a bowl add all the ingredients for dough , add water and knead until u get a smooth dough.Let the dough rest for 15-30 minutes.
1.Meanwhile boil poatoes , mash and keep it aside.
2.In a sucepan add some oil,sputter fennel seeds.
