Moong Daal Samosa

Recipe By : Niru Gupta
Type: Snacks Serving: 15-20


  • Samosa Pastry (Covering)  
  • 2 cups refined flour-sifted
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • cold water to knead
  • Filling
  • ¾ cup husked green gram (moong daal)-soaked in water for 3-4 hours
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/8 tsp asafetida
  • ¾ tsp garam masala
  • ¾ tsp chilli powder
  • 2 tbsp powdered fennel seeds
  • 2 tsp coriander powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1 ½ tsp mango powder


  • Filling:Grind the lentils coarsely. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil and add the cumin seeds and asafetida. When they begin to splutter, add the lentils and the rest of the ingredients, which make up the filling. Sauté over low heat till the mixture is well fried. It will stop sticking to the pan when done. Take mixture off heat and leave to cool.
  • DoughAdd the salt to the flour, and rub the oil into it. Add water and knead into a stiff dough (It is important for the dough to be stiff). Leave to rest for 15 minutes or so.

  • Shape dough into smooth balls, and roll the balls into thin rounds.

  • Cut these into halves. Take one half, wet the edges, and fold the straight edge at the centre and join by one half overlapping the other to form into a cone.

  • Press the overlapping portion, and fill the cone with desired filling, and press the edges together to seal.

  • The oil should be hot when you add the samosas to it, then lower the heat and let cook till brown.
