Chicken keema samosa recipe, Keema samosa

Chicken keema samosa/ Keema samosa is a popular deep fried savory snack prepared with maida dough for outer covering and masala flavored minced chicken as filling. This crispy and delicious keema samosas is perfect tea time snack/ Iftar snack during the holy month of Ramadan.

These chicken samosa ms are unbelievably easy to make as it requires pantry friendly ingredients. But if you decide to make it at home in a much simpler version you could use phyllo sheets for making the outer cover of the samosa but making samosa from scratch at home is more interesting and also is delicious. I have been thinking to post this recipe for a while but for some reason it never happened and I am very glad it is finally here.

If you are planning to make this samosa for the evening make sure to prepare the keema in the morning so the flavors penetrate inside the chicken well and you get delicious samosa which can be paired with green chutney/ simple ketchup along with a hot cup of chai especially if the day is super cold. So let’s get to the making!

Instructions
  1. In a bowl add maida, ajwain/ caraway seeds, salt and oil. Mix well. This crumbly mixture will help get crispy samosa. Now add water gradually to form a stiff dough. The dough should not be like chapati dough, as it will yield oily samosa, and the outer texture wont be hard enough. When the dough is ready cover it keep it aside for 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Now in a pan add 1 tsp of oil to it add jeera/ cumin seeds when it crackles add chopped onion. Saute well then add ginger garlic paste. Saute well until raw smell goes. Now add minced chicken, salt, turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala powder and red chili powder. Mix well and let it cook for 5 minutes in medium flame. After 5 minutes when chicken looks cooked add chopped cilantro / coriander leaves. Mix well. Saute the mixture till it gets dry. When the keema looks dry put off the flame and allow it to cool down.
  3. Now knead the dough once. Divide the dough equally into small balls. Now roll each dough ball flat using a rolling pin. The flattened dough should be between thin and thick thin like sheet, but not really thin like transparent as it needs to hold the filling.
  4. Now using a knife divide the flattened dough into 2 parts. Keep one part aside.
  5. Now with the another portion of sliced dough make a triangle. First keep the sliced part as top, then overlap left side with right side. Seal the edges tight using finger. Now make space for filling. Keep the keema filling in the centre and seal it tight. Repeat the process till all the dough and filling is finished.
  6. Heat oil in a kadai/ pan. When the hot is just hot put the flame to low and drop each uncooked samosa and fry till golden color is achieved. Fry the samosa in medium flame after 2 to 3 minutes as the stuffing is all cooked. When the samosa turns to golden brown remove it from oil using slotted spoon and transfer it to a plate with paper towel and serve it hot with ketchup.
