Paneer Samosa / Cottage cheese Samosa

 photo Paneersamosa3_zps70a27490.jpg

Fried snacks always have a special taste!! I am sure no one would deny this fact. When compared to bajji's and bonda's, this little samosa steals the list and goes to the top easily for me. I like samosa's a lot, be it the one from the near by road stall or one from the reputed chaat houses. I just love these mildly spiced crispy beauties a lot :)

It so happened that I found a pack of ready made samosa patty strips during my grocery shopping and I couldnt not control drooling and thinking of various options of fillings :) Immediately picked a pack and did it the very same evening and enjoyed for the evening snack :) 

This is first of the fillings that I tried with the soft cottage cheese. Wait for more experiments to come! :P

Paneer / Cottage Cheese - 500 gms
Onion - 1 large
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Kasoori methi - 1/2 tsp
Tomato sauce / puree - 2 tblsp
Salt - for taste

Grate paneer and keep it aside. Chop onion finely. 

Take a tsp of oil in a pan and add the cumin seeds. Once it splutters, add the chopped onion and saute until golden brown in color. Now add the tomato paste and saute for few minutes. 

Now add the chilly powder, salt, garam masala, coriander powder and kasoori methi leaves and cook until it starts smelling good :)

Finally add the grated paneer and mix well. Do not cook for long after adding paneer else it would turn hard. 

Remove from flame and allow it to come to room temperature. 

You can either make the samosa dough by mixing in 1 cup of maida and a pinch of salt with just adequate water and allowing it to sit in a closed bowl for an hour, else you can buy the ready made samosa patty strips or spring roll strips and make your samosa. 

I so happened to spot one pack of samosa patty strip this time when I went for grocery shopping and I had to make it instantly since it was way too tempting and simple to use :)

The samosa patty strips are frozen products, hence remove from freezer and thaw it for a while. When it is at room temperature, keep a spoon of filling on the corner of the strip and start folding into triangles until you reach the other edge of the strip. Seal the strip with a paste made by mixing maida with few drops of water. 

Deep fry in hot oil until evenly browned on all sides and enjoy eating it with tomato ketchup :)

The pictures are soooo tempting !! I never really liked Samosa, too heavy for me. These ones however, are made of filo pastries so am sure at least be a bit lighter than the original version,.. I can have a bite !:)
