How to proceed

  1. Place a samosa patti on a clean, dry surface and fold the right bottom corner of the samosa patti on the opposite side to form a triangle.
  2. Fold the entire triangle towards its left and again fold the entire triangle diagonally on the opposite side as shown in the image.
  3. Fill a portion of the filling and seal the edges using the maida-water paste so that the filling does not spill out as shown in the image.
