– In a bowl, add a cup of plain flour. Add semolina, salt and 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of hot ghee. Add some water in the flour making a well.
– Mix the flour well and knead a medium consistency dough. Keep it aside for 10 minutes.

– With the help of a rolling pin and a rolling board or any other flat surface, roll out thin, round rotis out of the small pieces of the dough.
– Cut the roti into half and fold the semi-circles making a cone. Fill up the cones with the mixture.
– Make sure you keep some space at the top of the cone so that the edges of the cone can stick properly.
– Apply a little bit of water to the edges and stick them well.
– At the joint, form a pleat making a fold. The samosas are ready to fry.
– Samosas need to be double fried in order to get the crunchiness. Half fry them first and then fry them again.
