Cheese Paneer Samosa

BM # 28   Day 1


After a month long marathon, only two days have passed and we are back into another edition.This week I have picked samosas .

I have always liked samosas, the Indian pastry with spicy potato stuffing,deep fried to a golden, or baked .They are a perfect tea time snack. Patti samosas are samosas made from strips made of all purpose flour .These are more crisp and crunchy and normally served as  biting' s.  The stuffing can vary. Cheese is one special ingredient for Gujarati's they like cheese in everything, be it dosa or pulao , cheese is must. These samosas are very popular in Gujrati homes and are served for parties. these are normally fried, but I prefer to bake . 

20 ready samosa pattis / strips 
If you do not have the samosa strips you can always make them .Check here.

Stuffing 
1/2 cup grated cottage cheese 
1/2 cup grated cheese 
1/2 capsicum, finely chopped 
2-3 green chillies, finely chopped 
1 tsp coriander leaves, finely chopped 
1 spring onion, white and green both, finely chopped 
Black pepper to taste 
Salt to taste 
Gently mix all the given ingredients for stuffing 
Do check the spices according to your taste. 
The patti samosas have a particular way of folding, which is actually very simple and with practice one can make them really fast.To check for step by step directions on folding and stuffing the samosas , please check here.
Brush the samosas with oil and bake at 180 deg for 15-20 minutes or till crisp and golden.make sure to turn them over once they are golden on one side.

  8. look like those patti strips are similar to phyllo dough. Maybe I'll try it for my 3rd samosa. as I've already done two for this same category I am doing week 3. I love cheese - must be so good!

  9. the filling looks delish... although my family doesnt prefer the patti samosa covering, would love to try it the usual way or hopefully I can find some phylo pastry somewhere :)
