While there are many restaurants in Mumbai that offer really good food, it’s even more fun to cook up good meals for friends and family for a change. But most times, we’re confused about what to cook, right? Well, we had a chance to curate a recipe by Vidhi Doshi a.k.a @RamenHairedGirl for Chinese noodle stuffed samosas that you could cook for your loved ones in minutes! Here it is.
3/4 cup Maida
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 tbsp ghee
Salt to taste
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp finely chopped garlic
1/4 tsp grated ginger
1 finely chopped green chilly
1/4 cup finely chopped spring onion whites
1/3 cup finely chopped carrot
1/3 cup finely chopped cabbage
1/3 cup finely chopped capsicum
2 1/2 tbsp Schezwan sauce
1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp vinegar
2 tsp ketchup
1/2 tsp sugar
1 1/4 cup boiled and chopped noodles
1/4 cup spring onion greens
oil for deep frying
Combine maida, whole wheat flour, ghee and salt together and mix well. (The addition of some fat, like ghee, is important for the samosas to turn crispy). Add water little by little and knead it into a soft dough. Cover and keep aside for 30 mins.
Heat oil in a pan, add the garlic, ginger and chilli, sauté for 1 minute.
Add the spring onions, carrot, cabbage, capsicum and salt, mix well and cook for 2-3 minutes or till the vegetables are cooked. Add the Schezwan sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, ketchup, sugar, mix well and cook for a minute.
Add the boiled noodles and mix well. Turn off the flame when they are just mixed. Then add the spring onion greens and mix again. Keep aside to cool.
Knead the dough again till it’s soft and divide it into 6 portions. Roll out each portion into a circle and divide into two equal semicircles.
Fold one semicircle, sealing the straight edge to form a cone.
Stuff the filling in the cone, leaving 1/2 cm edge on the top. Dab a little water on the inside edge and seal both sides together to form a triangular samosa. Make 11 others just like this.
Heat the oil and deep fry the samosas on a medium flame till they are golden brown and crispy.
The next time you host a house party, win the guests over with these fusion samosas and pair it up with a nice yoghurt dip!
