Oil - 5 tsp
Salt -to taste
Ajwain-1/2 tsp
Water-as needed

Take maida,ajwain,salt and oil in a wide bowl,rub it up to resemble bread crumbs.
Pour water little by little & make a semi stiff dough.
Cover it with a plate or cloth & rest it for 10 minutes.
Other Ingredients
Oil to deep fry

( Dilute it in water and make a semi thin paste,we will be using this paste to seal the samosa)


Method
Divide the dough into medium size balls,roll it out into a thin long oval shape.Cut it into half,
Take a knife and make slits/strips to one portion just in the middle leaving 1/2 cm on both edges ( see picture).Apply some maida paste on the 3 edges of the sheet ( corners) and place the other half sheet on top,gently press.

Note:
a) As these samosa sheets are heavy fry them in medium low flame so the inside sheet is well cooked.Do not be in a hurry.
b) Seal the samosa well so the filling dose not come out while frying.
c) Always keep the dough covered to avoid drying.
d) Create your own filling to make it more colourful and interesting.
