Onion samosa is a popular vegan snack in India, sold by teashops and street vendors. Onion, spices, and patti sheet are the major ingredients. Despite the fact that samosas are of Middle Eastern origin and were brought to India by traders, a vast variety of samosas are made throughout the country and are widely renowned. Today we'll learn how to make restaurant-style crispy and crunchy tiny onion samosas.

    What are mini onion samosas?

    Mini onion samosas are a smaller version of the deep-fried Indian snack known as samosa. It is smaller, bite-sized, crispier, and more crunchy than regular-sized onion or potato samosas. The preparation is simple, and the cooking time is significantly less than that of the other.

    The onion is the primary ingredient in the stuffing of an onion samosa. Garam masala and chili powder complement the finely sliced onion. There is no cooking involved in the preparation of the filling. 

    These adorable little treats don't require any accompaniment because they are so tasty and flavorful on their own. However, it is also usual to serve with condiments such as tomato ketchup or mint chutney.

    Small onion samosas are a popular snack in Tamil Nadu. For many years, each branded supermarket in here has sold small packets comprising five to six mini onion samosas. Tiny nibbles that are crunchy, crispy, and deliciously peppery are a delight to eat. In this recipe, I tried my hardest to replicate the same flavor, and I hope you love it.

    Mini onion samosa - Ingredients

    • All purpose flour or maidaAll-purpose flour is the main component of the samosa sheet (maida). This recipe includes samosa sheet preparation. The same sheet can be used for any type of samosa.

    • Onion - This dish calls for regular red onions. Simply chop them finely and combine them with the remaining ingredients to make the stuffing.

    • Flattened rice flakes (aval or poha) - Whenever an onion comes into touch with salt, water is released. Aval or poha is used to retain the stuffing's consistency and the onion samosa firm and wet.

    • Chili powder - for taste.

    • Oil - Oil is used to fry the samosas and to make the samosa patties.

    • Water - To make the samosa patti dough

    Mini onion samosas - Expert's tips

    1. Let's start with the samosa patti recipe. The primary component is all-purpose flour, often known as maida. However, many people are unwilling to incorporate maida in their diet; in this case, you can substitute up to half of all purpose flour with wheat flour or corn flour. The samosas will not taste like the authentic ones if maida is not used.
    2. A small amount of oil added while making the samosa patti dough will improve the texture of the samosa. Ghee can be substituted for oil. I think the samosas taste fantastic with ghee.
    3. Make a thin sheet to ensure appropriate crispiness and even cooking. The samosas will not taste good if the sheet is too thick.
    4. Overfilling the samosas will cause them to crack open while frying. Remember to fry the samosas as soon as the samosa sheets are filled.
    5. Although I used few spices in this dish, you can add some cumin seeds or fennel seeds if desired.

    10. To prepare the samosa patti, gently flatten it with a chapati roller. Make it as thin as possible. If you press too hard, the dough will stick again.

    11. Heat one griddle over high heat, then reduce to low once hot. Carefully place the prepared patti on the griddle.

    12. If it feels hot to the touch and all sides of the patti are cooked, flip and cook the other side for thirty seconds. Make sure the dough is thoroughly cooked before setting it aside to cool.

    13. Once the dough has cooled, carefully peel each sheet. So the samosa sheets are now ready.

    14. To make the samosa sheet, trim the sides and cut lengthwise. You can use a knife or a pizza cutter to cut the sheet.
