Chicken samosa is a delicious snack consisting of spiced minced chicken, finely chopped onions, and cilantro wrapped in an all-purpose flour dough. These samosas are then deep fried until deep golden brown and are usually served with a dipping sauce like green chutney. This is a common street food found in India and Pakistan and many variations exist. For example, some recipes use potatoes in the filling while others use vegetables instead of onions and cilantro.
To make this recipe, first prepare the dough. In a large bowl, mix the flour with water a little at a time until a soft and pliable dough forms. Knead the dough for about 7 to 10 minutes until it is smooth and elastic. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside for 30 minutes.
While the dough is resting, prepare the filling. In a pan, heat the oil and add the bay leaf, cinnamon stick, cloves, and green cardamom. When the spices are fragrant, add the onion and garlic and cook until tender. Add the ginger and the dry spices (turmeric powder, red chili powder, coriander powder, and black salt) and stir well. Finally, add the ground chicken and cook for about 8 to 10 minutes until the meat is cooked through. Finally, add the frozen peas and garam masala and stir to combine.
After letting the chicken filling cool, prepare to assemble the samosas. Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and roll each one on a well-floured surface into an oblong shape. Cut each oblong in half to form a half-moon shape. Brush the edges with water and fold into a cone shape, sealing with a little flour paste if necessary. سمبوسة دجاج
