      it means raw cumin (”,) roasted cumin is mostly used in chats but yes places like haldiram’s use roasted spices in their samosa as well (”,) but I mean raw Cumin when I only say cumin

    Hi thanx once again for d samosa recepe. I sum how like yr spice mix ka funda. I made it today n my fly enjoyed it. Dis time my hubby said its like Kaalba Devi ka samosa.
    I just hav a few queries cld u pl let me know d measurement of maida in grams coz when one measures in d cup it varies n d water proportion changes.
    When I made , after adding d first 1/4 cup of water when I added d next 1/4 cup of water d dough became soft n easily pliable. Hence I had to add more maida n made it firm.
    Dey turned out Gud but we’re only slightly crispy. It had no air bubbles and tasted Gud when eaten hot. After an hour d samosa became slightly soggy. The imli ki chutney was very tasty.
    I definitely want to giv it another try coz I know dey very much resemble tiwari ka samosa. All yr dishes r a superrrrrr hit . God bless u!!

    Fab recipe. Thanks for sharing. We add maharashtrian kala masala which names it even more tastier. I was told people also knead the dough in drinking soda to make it crispy and crunchy.

    Hello Mr. Bharat, the recipe sounds great and I intend to try it over the weekend…However, can you pls advise on below:
    1. What to do if I don’t have Anardana powder
    2. Can we make it in bulk and keep in freezer. Do we need to do anything differently
    3. I know they taste best when fried. But, can we bake these instead of deep friying.

    Hello Mr. Bharat,
    I need to ask you one more question. Can I use gluten free all purpose flour to make the samosas? One of my guests has gluten allergy. Thank you.
