Other Ingredients
Oil to deep fry
Maida/All purpose flour - 1 tsp
( Dilute it in water and make a semi thin paste,we will be using this paste to seal the samosa)

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.
Now try to form a cone as you make regular samosa (see picture).
Take a spoon full of the paneer peas mixture fill it inside the cone.Seal the top with maida paste.
Make all the samosas the same way,keep it covered with a cloth.

Heat oil in a pan deep fry these samosas in medium heat till light golden brown on all sides,remove it on a kitchen paper/tissue.
Serve these hot samosas with mint & tamarind chutney or ketchup.

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.
