Then, add 1/8th tsp each of salt, haldi, red chilli powder, dhania powder, garam masala and ajwain.
Add 1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste,1 tsp chopped coriander leaves, 1 tbsp boiled peas and mash well until the ingredients combine.
Roll the prepared dough using a rolling pin.
Spoon a sizeable portion of the stuffing into the centre of the rolled dough.
Using a knife, trim away the edges, to form a rectangle.
Now, fold in the edges, to form a triangular samosa shape.
In a kadhai, heat a sufficient amount of frying oil.
Add the samosa carefully into the oil, and deep fry evenly until it turns golden brown.
For chole, add 1 tsp oil into a heated kadhai.
Next, add 1/2 tsp jeera, 1.5 tbsp each of chopped onion and tomato.
Add 1/2 tsp of salt, 1.5 tsp ginger garlic paste and saute well.
