Scrambled Tofu Samosa

All of us agree that Samosas make for great appetizers at parties, right? So when Srivalli announced 'Types of Samosas' as one of the themes for BM #28, I thought I would take it up to please my family :). 

For the wrapper, I have earlier used a different ingredient mix for Vegetable Samosa. I have observed that both the wrappers work well.

Since my older one loves the scrambled tofu, I thought I should try this in a samosa form and see if she likes it! She really did like it. I also baked a batch of samosas instead of frying in the oil for my humble self :).

Ingredients - 

Oil for Deep Frying
For the Wrapper - 
All Purpose Flour / Maida 1/2 cup
Whole Wheat Flour 1/2 cup (I used Multi Grain Flour)
Oil 1 Tbsp
Ajwain / Carom seeds, crushed 1/2 tsp 
Salt and Red Chilli powder to taste
Yogurt / Curds 1/2 cup 
Warm Water to make the dough
The Filling - 
Scrambled Tofu / Tofu Burji 1 cup


Method Of Preparation -
For the Wrapper - 
In a mixing bowl, add maida, wheat flour, salt, red chilli powder and ajwain. Mix well and rub in the oil so that it is well incorporated.

Add yogurt and warm water and knead into a stiff dough (like chapati dough). I would like to cling wrap the dough and set aside for 15-20 min. (Or just cover the dough so it doesn't dry up).

Assembling the Samosa -
Pinch a big marble sized dough and roll it into a thin circle (like roti). Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut the circle into 2 halves.

On each half, apply water to the edge and make a cone/triangle shape and press well so that the edges are sealed properly. 

Fill in about a tablespoon of the filling and seal the edges by applying water.

Keep them covered while the oil is heated in a kadai/wok.

Gently slide these in moderately hot oil and fry them in low-medium heat. Drain them on to kitchen paper towels when they get a golden brown hue.

Continue frying them in batches and serve them hot with chutney of your choice.
