BORI SAMBOSA / BORI SAMOSAS ( with Keema Filling )

Crispy and crunchy bori samosas are perfect for a party to be served as a cocktail snack / finger food. The filling could be any thing, veg or non veg as you like it. Folding these samosas is a bit tricky. The folds at the corners have to be perfect but you can master it after trying out a few times. 

White flour ...........3-4 cups
Salt to taste

For the filling:
Chicken or mutton mince ... 1/2 kg
Onions ............. 2-3
Garam masala ....1 tsp.
Coriander powder ..... 1 tsp.
Cumin powder ...........1 tsp.
Dry mango powder .... 1/2 tsp.
Turmeric powder ...... 1/2 tsp.
Red chilli powder ........1 tsp.
Coriander leaves.

(Prepare the filling)

1. Fry the onions to a golden brown colour.
2. Add the mince and all the spices, salt and saute it adding a little water till done. It should remain dry. Add the coriander leaves and let it cool.

3. Now prepare the dough. Just add salt to the white flour and knead it.

4. In a small bowl mix oil and white flour in equal proportions.

5. Make a paste of white flour and water and cook it for 1-2 minutes.(This will be used to bind the samosas)

6. Roll out 4 small rotis from the prepared dough. Apply the white flour-oil mix on each, place the other one on top. Roll together all the 4 rotis.

7. On a hot griddle quickly semi-roast the rotis. Cut them into long strips and seperate them.

8. Fold each strip into a triangular shape and fill it with the prepared mix. Bind it using the paste.

Deep fry and serve hot. For variation you can use any other filling like aloo, paneer etc. etc.


  1. I love homemade samosas and love homemade pastry too. I love peas and potato filling.

    1. Yes, home made is always the best any day :)

  2. Yum! What is the dip that goes with it?

  3. This looks yum, I like that you've made the thin samosa wrapper! And the filling is just mouthwatering:) Lovely recipe, Shobha!
