Sanoli's Kitchen: COCONUT SAMOSA - NARKEL ER SINGARA

COCONUT SAMOSA - NARKEL ER SINGARA

A delicious yummy snack is samosa, a favourite appetizer to most of the Indians. It is nothing like a 'Hot Pocket', filling mostly with vegetables. Today I made coconut filling, then stuffed it into a cone shaped piece of pastry and formed a triangle. Fried and enjoyed with tangy chutney or ketchup. Bengalis are called samosa as singara. Specially in a Winter evening, samosa with ketchup/chutney with piping hot tea or coffee - a nostalgic combination.

INGREDIENTS:
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1/4 tsp Sodium bi Carbonate
4 tbsps Canola Oil
1 Cup Grated Coconut
1 tsp Roasted Peanuts (crushed)
2 tbsps finely chopped Cilantro / Coriander Leaves
3-4 Green Chillies (finely chopped)
1 tsp Sugar
1/3 tsp Black Pepper powder
1/2 tsp Chaat masala
1 tsp Lemon Juice
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying

METHOD:
In a large bowl, combine all purpose flour, sodium bi carbonate, 4 tbsps canola oil and little salt. Mix well. Knead everything tightly by using a little water to make a smooth dough. Equally divide dough into 10 small balls. Cover it with a damp cloth and set aside.

Now start making the filling. In a medium bowl, mix grated coconut, peanuts, cilantro, green chillies, sugar, black pepper powder, chaat masala, lemon juice and salt. Fold all the ingredients very nicely. Keep it aside.

Roll out each ball, one at a time. Cut it in half to make two equal semi circles.

Brush the edges with little water and form a cone with each semi circle. With fingers just press the part where edges meet. Fill the cone with 1 tbsp coconut filling.

Seal the samosa by brushing a little water on the opening end and lightly pressing the whole thing together.

Heat oil in a wok. Fry the samosas till golden brown and crispy. Remove from oil and drain on a kitchen papper towel.

Serve hot with your favourite chutney or ketchup and wash it down with a piping hot tea or coffee.
