Mini Sweet Corn Samosa


These sweet corn samosa is my favourite snacks. I just love sweet corn as this is one veg after paneer that usually blends very well to your taste and gravy or even a starter, I usually used to buy frozen sweet corn samosa cause they used to be good and very handy whenever u want to have them instantly, so today I tried these finally and it was very good and am also sending this to the event hosted by Rak's of rak's kitchen

Ingredients

For the dough


2 cups Maida

1 tbsp gramflour

2 tbsp hot oil/ghee

a pinch of cooking soda

salt to taste

For the filling

1 cup boiled corn

1 capsicum

1 tsp cumin seeds

1 tsp ginger-green chilli paste

1 tsp chilli powder

2 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves

1 tsp lemon juice

salt to taste

2 tsp oil

Other ingredients

Oil to deep fry

Method

For the dough

Take the bowl, add gramflour,salt,cooking soda,maida, hot oil and enough water to make a stiff dough and then keep aside

For the filling

Chop the capsicum finely and Mash the corn slightly and then keep aside
Heat oil in a pan, add jeera, when it crackles, add ginger-chilli paste and fry for 2-3 minutes

Add corn,capsicum, chilli powder,salt,coriander leaves , lemon juice and mix well and fry for another 2-3 minutes and then keep aside to cool

For the samosa

Divide the dough into small equal portions, Take one portion of the dough and roll it into a small thin round shape
cut into half,apply little water on the edges, make a cone out of it, put the 2 tsp stuffing, close by crimping the edge
Likewise repeat the same procedure for the rest of the dough and filling
Heat oil in a pan, when its hot, deep fry the samosa on a medium flame till golden brown and crisp on both the sides,drain onto an absorbent paper and serve hot with green chutney

(Adding gramflour and hot oil to the dough makes the samosa more crisp and keeps it that way for a long time)
