  • First you need to dry mix all the ingredients and then add hot oil.Mix this and rub this well in between your palms to make sure it looks like breadcrumbs.
  • Dough should be stiff.
  • Frying samosa should be on medium flame.High heat will burn them quickly and leave the cover soft and not crisp.
  • To make sure the onion stuffing doesn't add moisture to samosa cover,I have added oats to the onion mix.But you can add powdered Poha /flattened rice too.
