Expert Tips

  1. Do allow the dough to rest for at least 30 minutes , which will result in a better crust and make handling the dough much easier.
  2. Adjust the spices and seasoning to your liking, you can add more ajwain or hing or add more spices that better suit your taste.
  3. Make sure that while frying the oil is not cold. Cold oil will result in an oil soaked samosa rather than a nice a crispy one
