- For making samosa, add melted butter/ ghee and salt to the flour and mix evenly with your finger-tips. Add water little by little to this and knead well to make a smooth and soft dough.
- Make about 6-7 balls out of the kneaded dough and roll each ball to make a thick poori like circle.
- Cut it to two halves, take one of them and apply little water along the edges and fold it to make a cone.
- Fill it with 2 tsp of the prepared beef filling and seal the other end of the cone with little water/ maida mixtute. ( Mix 1 tbsp flour with 1 1/2 tbsp water ). Repeat the process with the remaining dough.
- Heat oil in a pan and fry the samosas on medium flame till both sides turn golden brown.
