Chicken Samosa





Introduction: Chicken Samosa

This is one of the tastiest  snack named  Chicken Samosa that kills your time in making it.Those who wants to try this out please set some hours free before you start on it.I make my pastry sheets  a day early so that I need not stay for long hours in the pantry.
I always  love spicy and hot,so I have used chili powder and green chili.If you do not want it hot ,you can use paprika powder instead of chili powder and skip the green chillies.
I like to publish my projects step by step with lots of photos ,so that every one can understand well, looking at the pictures alone.

When fried it is crispy,so have them hot hot. with your favorite sauce if you like.

Step 1: Ingredients

For the  filling

Chicken pieces with out bones (1/2 Kg)
Onions(double the quantity of the chicken)
3-4 cloves
Few green chillies (option)
Chili powder/Paprika powder
Curry powder
Turmeric Powder

For the dough


Step 2: Preparing the Samosa Sheets

Combine salt and water together mix and knead well. With your floured hands roll out ,make small balls in to pairs,double the size of a marble and flatten them with your finger tips.Apply oil to one side and place another flatten dough on top.Press them together ,roll out a bit.
Dust a little flour on the working board and roll them again  to oval shape to about 7-8 inches in length.If you want you can roll it a little bit longer  ,so that you can have bigger Samosa's. Have them all ready, so that you can warm it in the  pan one by one. Toss them in to the heated non stick pan for few seconds.Just one side half done would be fine
Don't wait until it is fully done.Take it out and slowly remove the two pasted sheets.Since I applied oil in between the doughs once it is heated slightly, it removes with out any problem
You can make the Samosa sheets as much as you want and freeze them for later use..Defrost  very well before you use.

Step 3: Pasting in to Triangle

Make a paste by mixing flour and water.
Fold from  the  right side of the dough, with your finger tips apply the paste marked along the dots.(see picture)Press well and paste.
Now fold from the left side and paste on top of the first fold.Se detailed  picture.Once you do the pasting it should be in a  shape of a triangle.

Step 4: Making the Chicken Filling

Combine chicken,salt and turmeric powder,cook  on slow fire until is done.Drain the water out and chop the chicken in to tiny pieces.
Chop the onions and make the garlic and ginger paste.
Heat oil and stir fry the garlic first,and add the ginger paste,when it is a bit golden  in color add the onions ,salt. and curry leaves.
If you like to have hot ,add green chillies cut in to small rounds.The onions will reduce to half of the quantity once it is cooked  on slow fire.Then add the chicken,stir well,add chili powder ,turmeric powder,curry powder one by one on slow fire.
When it is fully cooked add half lime juice ,stir,cover and let it simmer in slow fire.Time to time m last mix well .This gives a very nice flavor.

Step 5: Filling

I filled up all the triangle cones with the yummy chicken filling.
Follow the rest of the pictures you will understand.
Have them all ready in a try to be fried.

Step 6: Frying

Depending  on how big your frying pan, put a couple of the Samosa's in hot oil and fry them until golden brown.Turn them on both sides while frying.Transfer it to a sieve for the oil to drip and then to a kitchen tissue.Semi fry if you want to freeze them for later use.
When it is cool pack them up and freeze it..Defrost two hours before and re fry to golden color.

Step 7: Enjoy!

Have them hot hot as it is very crispy.I love this Chicken Samosa so much that I end up eating about 8-10 at  one go.
Enjoy  and thanks for reading.

I have posted this in the Hurriecane contest too.
I am a day care mom who is working full time,and do not have enough time for my sewing and crafting work which I love it very much.If ever I win the laser cutter I will give up my full time job or reduce it to a couple of hours(because I do a lot of craft work  with the kids and they will be dissapointed to see me no more)and start my own business at  home as I have enough and more sewing orders which I can not do it on time.Every instructable I do with the help of the laser cutter,I will definetly post it on this great site.
