Fill the Samosa Pattis

Take the thawed Samosa Pattis and make small cones out them leaving the wide side open. The size of the cone depends on your choice. Maximum recommended size for the cone is 8-10 cm in diameter and the smallest recommended is 5-6 cm in diameter.

Fill the cones with small amounts of potato filling and seal it using water.

At this stage the Samosas can be stored in the freezer and used as required.

Finally you can fry these filled cones in medium-hot oil or bake them in the oven at 400 deg F for about 45 minutes or till it turns light golden brown.

Serve hot with green chutney and tamarind chutney
