Samosa Recipe – Step by Step Punjabi Samosa
As we approach the weekend, there is no other food that comes to my mind than these Golden, Crispy Samosas also known as ‘Aloo Samosa or Punjabi Samosa‘ !!
This recipe is vegan/vegetarian and used oil to make the samosa instead of ghee.
When we talk about Indian snacks or favorite Indian Street Food, it cannot be that you DONOT name Samosa’s in the Top 2 range.
You can find them in every Indian restaurant, parties, and definitely festivals – They are a MUST!!
Hence, today I’m sharing with you’ll the Punjabi Samosa Recipe with lots of tips and tricks to make them just like Restaurant-style.
For Crispy-Crunchy Samosa, you need to mix them nicely with oil and less water (steps given below).

Samosa Recipe Ingredients
I’m diving this into two main categories:
6 Boiled Potatoes
Indian Spices Powder:
Dry Mango (amchur)
Ginger Powder/Fresh Ginger
All-Purpose Flour – you can use a mix of whole + all-purpose flour too
Carrom Seeds (ajwain)
Vegetable Oil – for the crispiness
Water – to make the dough
Step by Step Samosa Recipe
Again the process is divided into 3 categories:
How to Make Crispy Samosa Wrap / Dough:
We add all the dough ingredients (except water) in a large bowl and mix to form a crumble.
Then we hold the crumble in our palm and if the shape stays (STEP 4 below) then you are ready for the next step (or add 1-2tbsp more oil).
Now add 3-4 tbsp water and mix the dough to a thick and tight dough like shape.
Add all the water and knead to form a tight/hard dough.
Keep it aside for 15 minutes (this step helps flour form gluten and become pliable)
Shape the Wrapper:
Divide the dough into 15 equal balls and roll till no lines are visible.
Take each ball and roll on a flat surface to form a 1.5inch thick disc.
Now cut the disc in the middle to form half-moon shape.
Apply water to the cut edges and form a triangle (sealing with water).
Lift the triangle in your palm to form a cone shape (box 1 below)
Now, take 1 tbsp potato filling and add inside the cone (leaving some space on the top to seal).
Dab some water on the inside of one side of the cone and seal the cone.
Seal and crimp the edges to make sure it’s air-tight and doesn’t burst while cooking.
Follow the steps above and make all the samosa shapes.
Fried Crispy Samosa:
Heat oil in a pan.
Add 3-4 raw samosa in the pan and fry on a low-medium flames.
Fry till golden brown on both sides.
Air Fryer Samosa or Baked:
Preheat Air Fryer or Oven at 180F.
Place 2-3 samosa in an air fryer basket and spray with oil on both sides.
Start the Air Fryer for 10-12 minutes (check your air fryer instructions for time duration).
For baked version, place on baking tray and spray with oil. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown on both sides.

These samosas can be stored for 2 days in the fridge (if you are left with any, as we never have this situation 😉 and you can store the non-fried samosa’s in the freezer for 2 weeks(in ziplock or freezer containers.)
They can be made Baked, Fried or Air-Fried depending on the method you like and all the versions are equally tasty.
