Homemade Samosa Strips

July 23, 2020
Homemade Samosa Strips taste better than store bought. I always make my own Samosa strip and they are perfect every time I make Samosas or Egg Samosas with breadcrumbs. 

(Makes 20 strips)


For the dough
1 cup flour 
1 1/2 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup of water 

3 tbsp oil
1/2 cup flour for dusting and rolling 
A cardboard strip of size 10 x 3 inch size for large samosas and 10 x 2.5 inches for small samosas. (you can also directly measure it on the dough)


1. Combine flour, oil and salt in a bowl. Add water and knead well and make a firm dough. The dough should not be too hard or too soft. Let it rest for 10 minutes. 
2. Divide the dough in to 10 equal portions. Roll one dough ball in to 7 inch diameter circle and keep it on flour dusted plate. 
3. Now brush some oil on to the rolled circle. Make sure to brush everywhere. Then sprinkle some flour on top. 

4. Roll another circle of the same size and put it on top of the oil and flour sprinkled circle. Brush oil again on top that and sprinkle some flour. Repeat the process two more times until you get a four layered circle. 
5. Dust some flour on to a surface and place the layered circle. Roll the dough dusting flour, in to a large circle of at least 12 inch diameter. 
6. Heat a pan or Thawa and cook the rolled circle lightly. Samosa Dough should be cooked lightly just to enable you to peel the layers of dough. It will take approximately 30 seconds. 
7. After both sides are cooked, peel of the layers and place every layer on top of each other. Then place the cardboard strip or directly measure 10 x 3 inch (large samosas) or 10 x 2.5 inch strips (small samosas) and cut. It is always easier to cut strips after peeling off the layers. 
8. Keep samosa strips covered always with cling film or a clean kitchen towel. These strips can be wrapped tightly with plastic wrap in an airtight container and frozen up to 2 months. Your Samosa strips are ready!


Always measure the size before cutting the strips. Do not guess and cut strips for neat Samosas.
