  3. Cover it with a moist cloth and leave it for about 30 mins.
  4. Mash the boiled potatoes roughly with your hands
  5. Heat oil in a frying pan. When hot add cumin seeds.

  14. Fill the cone with the stuffing and make sure to fill the tip of a cone with a pea or little potato so that it forms a good shape.
  15. Wet the circumference of the cone with the water. Using your fingertips stick it together and make a pleat in the center to form the back bone of samosa. Now fold it to form a triangle.
  16. Repeat the process for rest of the dough.
  17. Heat oil in a frying pan for frying the samosa. Fry all the samosa on the medium heat . Drop in the samosa gently into the oil and fry both the sides until golden brown.
