Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes


  • 2 cups boiled potatoes, diced (about 4 medium-sized potatoes)
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 3 green chilies, chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp whole spices (such as cumin seeds or mustard seeds)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 tsp red pepper (adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric


  • Heat 1 tsp of vegetable oil in a pan over medium heat. Cook the chopped onions until they become translucent.
  • Add the chopped vegetables of your choice (peas and carrots), green chilies, 1 tsp salt, and 1 tsp black pepper to the pan. Cook for about 2 minutes until the vegetables start to soften.
  • In a separate bowl, mash the boiled potatoes.
  • To the mashed potatoes, add the spice mixture: 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp black pepper, whole spices, garlic powder, ginger powder, red pepper, and turmeric. Mix well to combine.
  • Add the cooked vegetable mixture, lemon juice, and chopped cilantro to the potato and spice mixture. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined.
  • Take samosa wrappers (samosa Patti), fold them, and fill with the prepared filling. Seal the edges using a paste made from flour and water.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a wok or deep-frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry the samosas until they turn golden brown, turning occasionally to ensure even cooking. This should take about 3-4 minutes per side.
  • Remove the fried samosas and drain them on paper towels to remove excess oil.
  • Serve your delicious samosas with pudina chutney.
