Chicken Samosa

For this weeks Marathon I choose to cook samosa's with different fillings. Samosa's are one of my favorite snack. The outer part of samosa is made with all purpose flour and the filling depends on ur taste. Those who like non veg  samosa's, they can make the filling with chicken, keema etc.... For veggies the filling can be simply potato and peas, mixed veggies, paneer etc.... There are lots of options for the filling. For the day 1, am making Chicken Samosa. I had left over Chicken Fry which am going to use for the filling. Here goes teh recipe....


We need:


Chicken curry or fry 1 cup
Maida / All purpose flour 2 cups
Salt to taste
Ajwai / 1/4 sp
Butter 2sps melted
Oil for deep frying.


Method:

I have taken the chicken pieces and very little gravy from Chicken fry.
Make chicken pieces into small pieces.
Add salt, ajwai and melted butter to maida and mix well for 5 minutes.
Now add little water at a time to make smooth dough( not too smooth)
Cover with lid and rest the dough for 30 to 40 minutes.
Heat oil in deep frying pan.
Make this dough into 8 equal balls.
Roll each ball as poories with rolling pin.
Cut his poori into half.


Fold each piece as triangle leaving one side open to fill the curry as shown in the above picture.
Fill it with chicken curry and cover the other side tightly.


Deep fry 2 to 3 at a time in hot oil till brown.
Serve hot with any sweet chutney, green chutney or simply ketchup.
