For a person who is a beginner in making samosas, or is trying them out for the first time, this is a wonderful recipe! I made this for the Pick Your Chef contest(July 25-27'03)! These are not spicy even after having 3 green chillies in them due to which, even 10-12 year old's can enjoy them! I served these with Sweet(Metha) chutney! This made 18 samosas that were gone in less than 8 minutes! The staff at my dad's office said I made their day(they love to eat!). Next time I'll be using some lemon juice, greenpeas, mushrooms, more green chillies, more chat masala and more garam masala. I used 2 tsps. powdered cumin this time and loved it. I'm also considering using some dried kasoori methi for this(crumbled between my palms). I did use 1 1/4 tsps. salt this time, but will use a little(about 1/2 tsp.) more next time. I did fall short on the amount of paste used to seal the samosas. I had to make exactly the same amt. more of what is stated here. Thank You for the recipe!
