Samosa Pastry

Nuvita Biscuits

These are the outer coverings of the samosa and today we will show you how you can make these and then make the fillings for the samosa’s. Enjoy this recipe. Do share your experience.


  • 4 cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • cold water
  • 1/2 cup oil mixed with 2 tbsp flour to spread on pastry, extra flour for rolling


  1. Mix salt oil into the flour until it is crumbly, add enough cold water for a chapatti-like dough.
  2. Divide the dough into about 20-25 balls, Roll out with into 3 inch circles.
  3. Spread oil and flour mixture over one roti, place the second one one top, pressing together gently, repeat until you have pile of seven chapati’s or roti’s.
  4. Roll out the whole pile until it is 7-8 inch in diameter, use extra flour during rolling if necessary.
  5. Place on a medium hot tawa, cook lightly on 1 side then turn the roti over and cook lightly on the other side for approximately 20 seconds.

Remove the top chapati/roti, turn over and remove the chapati/roti from the other side, repeat until all seven are separate. .
Wrap the samosa pastries in the tea towel.
When all the pastries are made, pile them evenly on top of each other, cut them into half, cut the top and bottom of to make them straight.

Then cut them into four equal pieces from one chapati/roti, thus giving you a triangular shape, then all you need to do is fold the shape to a samosa, and to stick the sides together mix little flour with water, to act as the glue.

Then add the fillings and you are ready to go and fry :)

    I am tired of always making the green-brown lentils common here in Mexico into a dal. The flavor is boring. But although Mexicans eat a lot of lentils, I cannot seem to find moong, toor, urad, chana, masoor dals here anywhere. There is almost no Indian community here (the only Sikh gurudwara is operated by a Frenchman…..)

    I also need many ingredients like black cumin, green cardomum, pastry for samosas, papadums, all these kind of things, any ideas?
    Yes, “Desi” actually I tried getting culinary advice in the Chinese Embasy in Kabul Afghanistan many years ago, they don’t actually appreciate it. And far from a “huge Sikh” population, there is practically NONE!

    I DO bring dal and spices with me when I visit my family in Vancouver and ordering things to Mexico via the Net is not all that secure nor dependable, but it might be the only option…

    I am hoping someone “Indian” in Mexico City might read this and have a better solution! If not, I thank you guys for your help!

    I forgot what it’s call but it uses a phyllo pastry and on the inside you put like spinach and fetA and you roll it into tri angles what’s that name of it?

    I want to make a simply chicken biryani. Note that I’m a 24 year old student, and I have very little experience in cooking.

    I have the following ingredients with me.
    -Ginger Garlic paste
    -Assortment of masalas
    -Mixed vegetables (frozen)
    -Frozen peas
    -Vegetable oil

    I also have
    -Ground Cumin
    -Black pepper

    With these ingredients, can I make something that qualifies as chicken biryani? If so, how and what? What are the steps involved?

    I made a cheats version of them with filo pastry and filled them with corned beef and cabbage. There’s only 2 each, so I thought of serving them with chips, but we’re out all day tomorrow and will probably buy chips for lunch, so I don’t really want to do chips today aswell. Any suggestions please?

    These lines are confusing – “Divide the dough into about 20-25 balls, Roll out with into 3 inch circles.
    Spread oil and flour mixture over one roti, place the second one one top, pressing together gently, repeat until you have pile of seven chapati’s or roti’s.”
    How can you start with 20-25 balls and end up with a pile of 7 chapatis or rotis? I thought each ball would end up being rolled into a chapati and you would therefore end up with 20 to 25 chapatis. Please explain.
