    2. Divide the dough in small lime sized balls.

    Making stuffing

    1. Remove skin from boiled potatoes and mash well.

    2. In a bowl, add mashed potatoes, grated paneer, salt and chili powder.

    3. Fry cashew nut pieces and raisins in ghee and add this to the potato mix.

    4. Fry onions in a little oil and when they are translucent add the potato mix and mix well.
      Remove the mixture from fire and let it cool.

    Making samosa

    1. Roll out small puris(circles) from each maida dough ball.

    2. Cut the round in half. Make cone shape from one half and stuff the potato mixture neatly.

    3. Put just a little water with your finger on the edge of the samosa and close it on all sides and make it into a small cone shape.

    4. Stuff all the samosas in this way.

    5. Heat oil well. Fry the samosas till they are golden brown all over.

    Serve these mini samosas with tomato ketchup or green chutney or sweet tamarind chutney. You may serve them hot or cold. They taste good both ways.
