For the filling

  • Blanch the broccoli and beans in salted boiling water for 4 minutes. Rinse in cold water and drain.
  • Heat the ghee in a frying pan and cook the cumin seeds for 1 minute, then add the ginger and ground spices and stir well.

  • Divide the filling between the dough squares and fold each wrapper diagonally in half to form a triangle. Press the edges down firmly, brushing with a small amount of water to help seal the edges.
  • Heat the oil in a large pan. Fry the samosas a few at a time, in the hot oil for 3-4 minutes, turning once. Drain on kitchen towels.
