Add 1/4 cup of water (60 ml) gradually with kneading until you get a dough.

  • After that, when you made the oval cut it in half. Now, form each half like a cone. Fill the cone with the mixture that we made before. brush the cone edges with water, and close the Sambosa. Repeat with all the parts.
  • Next, drop the veggie Sambosas into hot oil, you can put 4 – 5 each time. Fry them for about 5 minutes until golden brown.
