  • Add 1/2 tsp of freshly ground ginger garlic paste ,1/2 tsp red chilly powder,1/8 tsp haldi, 1/4 tsp garam masala, 1/8 tsp salt and mix all these ingredients well.

  • Blend with a little water so that mixture is not too dry.

  • Now to this spiced onion and ginger garlic mix, add 1 tbsp green peas, 3/4 cup chopped purple cabbage and mix well.

  • Elevate the recipe with a Neste Twist at this stage by adding a small portion of calcium enriched white sesame seeds. Saute the mix until the sesame seeds are toasted.

  • Next add 3 tbsp of grated cheese and continue to saute the vegetable mix on a low flame.

  • Mix all the components well, adding a little water again if required.

  • Cover and cook until the green peas have softened to a delicate bite. The filling is now ready and can be set aside to cool for a few minutes.

    In a mixing bowl, add 2 tbsp Wheat Flour, 1 tbsp Maida and blend both into a fine flour.

  • Add 1/8 tsp salt to season and water as required.

  • Gently knead the mix using your palms into a soft smooth dough ball without any lumps.

  • Roll the dough out into an even circle using a rolling pin.

  • Using the sharp edge of a knife carefully cut the circle through the middle into two halves.

  • Carefully, shape each half of the dough sheet to make triangular pockets.

  • Now, using a spoon fill the prepared vegetable mix into each pocket . Gently but thoroughly seal the edges leaving no gaps to prevent the mix from spilling out.

  • For frying

    Next, heat a sufficient amount of frying oil in a kadhai for frying the samosas.

  • When the oil bubbles slightly along the edges of the kadhai, carefully add the samosas and deep fry until golden brown. Flip samosas gently and repeat on the other side.

  • Remove samosas carefully, draining away excess oil and serve hot.
