Tortillas or spring roll sheets are stuffed with spicy potato mixture and deep fried to make this quick Indian savory snack. Samosa is very famous through India. Here is a simple recipe to make samosa using tortilla or spring roll sheets.

Recipe For Samosa


  • Tortilla/Spring roll sheets - 4
  • Potato - 2 (boiled and cubed)
  • Carrot - 1 (boiled and chopped)
  • Green peas - 1 cup
  • Cilantro - handful (chopped)
  • Green chilly - 2
  • Cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
  • Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
  • Chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Corriander powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - a pinch
  • Cashews - 6-7
  • Lime - 1/2
  • Salt - to taste


  1. Heat oil in a pan, fry the cumin seeds, ginger garlic paste, green chillies and cashew nuts.
  2. Add the boiled potato pieces, boiled carrot pieces and green peas along with salt, chilly powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and cilantro.
  3. Cook for 2 minutes for the flavors to blend together. Add few drops of lemon at the end. The filling is ready.
  4. For the outer covering, cut a tortilla in half.
  5. Make a cone shape as shown in the picture. Stuff the filling inside.
  6. Seal the edges using egg or with few drops of water.
  7. Deep fry in oil till it becomes golden brown.
  8. Drain excess oil using paper towel and serve hot with some ketchup or mint chutney.


  • This is just one example of filling. Any filling can be made with any vegetables on hand. Even left over side dishes can be used as filling.
  • You can also make non veg samosas with kheema masala.
  • Instead of tortillas, the outer covering can be made at home. Use maida and make like chapattis, cut into half and fill it.
  • Other alternatives to tortilla are frozen uncooked chapattis or spring roll sheets. The picture above shows samosas made with spring roll sheets.

how do you make the dipping sauce to go with samosa?
Person   ()
It is usually had with tomato ketchup or mint chutney.

For making mint chutney, grind together a cup of mint leaves, 1/2 cup of coriander leaves and 5 green chilies with required salt and juice from 1 whole lemon. Add additional water as required and blend it to a smooth puree.

Hi Raji,
R u talking about home made covering?? I usually make a dough similar to chappatti dough with maida (all purpose flour). But before adding water, add oil or dalda to the flour and mix well. The more oil/ dalda you add the more crispier it will become.
