Let’s begin the preparation!

Ingredients Required for Modak Samosa:

For Dough:

Refined Flour - 2 Cup
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Carom Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Desi Ghee - 4 tbsp
Water - 1/2 Cup

For Stuffing:

Oil - 1 tbsp
Ginger - 1/2 tsp, grated
Green Chilli - 2, finely chopped
Coriander - 1 tsp

Spicy Modak Shaped Samosa Recipe:

Take 2 cups maida in a bowl. Add ½ tsp of salt and ½ tsp of carom seeds. Add carom seeds after crushing them with hands. Carom seeds enhance the taste of samosa; also it is good for digestion.

Now, add 4 tbsp of ghee to the Maida and mix well. Bind the maida and you will see the perfect binding. It is because the Moyan* is working properly. After all, we added it after measuring.

*Notes: Moyan is ‘ghee’ or ‘oil’ which is added to the dough to make it smooth.

Alternative: You can use oil instead of Ghee.

Suggestion: Moyan will always be ¼ of Maida. In reference, we have taken 60-grams of ghee (Moyan), where the maida was 250-gram.

Now, pour water gradually in the Maida and knead a stiff dough. Use lukewarm water for kneading the dough. The dough is ready. We have used ½ cup of water for kneading. Now, cover and leave the dough for 20 minutes.

Suggestion: When you are using ghee as Moyan then use lukewarm water only.

Meanwhile, we will prepare the stuffing for samosa. Heat a pan and add 1 tbsp of oil to it. When the oil is hot, add ½ tsp of grated ginger, 2-finely chopped green chilies, 1 tsp of coriander powder, and roast them briefly. Keep the flame medium to avoid the burning of masala.

Take 4-medium size boiled potatoes. Peel the potatoes cover and add them after mashing. Now, add ½ tsp of cumin powder, ¾ tsp of red chili powder (or as per your taste), ½ tsp of dry mango powder (Amchur), ¼ tsp of garam masala, and ½ tsp of salt (or as per your taste) to the pan. Mix the masala well with mashed potatoes.

Suggestion: Roast the potatoes well and ensure the stuffing is moist-free, else the samosa will become soggy.

The potatoes are well-roasted and the stuffing is fragrant, add 2 tsp of green coriander, and mix well. Turn off the heat. The stuffing for samosa is ready.

After 20 minutes, knead the dough a little and make it soft. Now, divide the dough into 2-portions and roll it to increase it by length. Next, divide the rolled dough into small lumps. Once done, pick one dough lump and cover the remaining with a lid.

Roll the dough between your palms and press to shape it like Peda. Now, roll the dough into a disc shape sheet of about 3.5 to 4-inch diameter. Roll the sheet evenly. Put the dough sheet on your palm and place some stuffing in the center. Apply a little water around the circumference.

Lift one side of the sheet and start pleating- same as you do for Modak. Join all the pleats in the center and pinch it at the top.

We have heated the oil beforehand. Drop a piece of dough to check the oil. We don't need too hot oil for frying. We need low-medium hot oil for frying.

Drop the Modak in the kadhai and turn the flame to low-medium. In the beginning, fry the Modaks slowly for 3-4 minutes over medium flame. Once the Modak color slightly changes, turn the flame to medium and fry them up until golden brown.

Modaks have turned golden brown. Now, take them out on a plate. Drop another batch of samosa when the oil temperature reduces to low-medium. For that, turn off the stove for 1-2 minutes.

After 2 minutes, turn the flame to low-medium and drop another batch of Modak for frying. Now, fry them similarly as the first batch. Each batch takes 10-12 minutes.

Garma-Garam Modak Samosas are ready to be served. Serve them with green coriander chutney or any of your favorite dip. Prepare and enjoy delicious spicy Modak samosas with your family.
