    For the dough:

    500 gm maida (refined flour)

    1/2 cup ghee or oil

    5 gm ajwain



    Oil for deep frying the samosas

    For tempering:

    1/2 cup ghee

    1 tsp cumin seeds

    1/2 tsp turmeric powder

    1/4 tsp red chilli powder

    2-3 green chillies

Chop the green chillies, ginger and the coriander leaves.

Mix all the ingredients for the dough except water and rub thoroughly.
