Punjabi Samosa

For dough
    200 gm refined flour (all purpose flour)
    100 gm wheat flour
    2 teaspoon cornflour (the covering of the samosa will remain crisp for 2-3 hours)
    1/2 teaspoon ajwain 
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoon cooking oil
    1/2 cup water 

    500 g potatoes (boiled and slightly mashed )
    1 cup peas (shelled and boiled)
    1 teaspoon coriander seeds
    1 teaspoon cumin seeds(jeera)
    2 chopped green chillies
    1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds(rai)
    2-3 curry leaves
    1/2 amchur powder (dry mango powder )
    1/4 teaspoon turmeric
    1/2 teaspoon red chilly powder
    1 teaspoon garam masala
    1 tablespoon cooking oil
    1/2 cup cilantro (coriander)
    Salt to taste
    Oil for frying

    Mix maida, cornflour, wheat flour, oil, ajwain and salt.
    Make stiff hard dough with water and keep aside for 1/2 hour.
    The dough will automatically become little soft because of maida.

For masala/stuffing
    Heat cooking oil in a pan.
    Add mustard seeds.
    When mustard seeds crackle, add cumin seeds, coriander seeds, curry leaves and chopped green chillies.
    Add potatoes,peas,salt,turmeric powder,red chilli powder,amchur powder and garam masala.
    Mix well.
    Cook for 10 minutes.
    Add cilantro and mix it properly.
    No need to add water.

For Covering
    Make balls from the dough and roll it like a puri.
    Cut it into two from the center with the help of a knife.
    We will get two semi circle shaped puris.
    Fold each part in triangle shape.
    This is done by bringing together the edges of the puri and making a cone.
    Fill the potato mixture, stick sides with the help of water and close the cone.
    Heat oil. Deep fry on low flame till the samosa are golden brown in color.
    Serve hot with Tamarind chutney or tomato sauce.
