Prepare the dough
Step 1:In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, ghee or butter, and salt. Mix well. Gradually add water and knead to form a smooth dough. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.
Prepare the filling
Step 2:Heat oil in a frying pan. Add cumin seeds and let them splutter. Add finely chopped onion and sauté until golden brown. Add ginger paste, green chili, and sauté for a minute. Add crumbled paneer, boiled green peas, garam masala, coriander powder, turmeric powder, red chili powder, and salt. Mix well and cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and let the filling cool down. Add fresh coriander leaves and mix.
Shape and fry the samosas
Step 3:Divide the rested dough into small lemon-sized balls. Roll each ball into a thin oval shape. Cut the oval into half. Take one half and form a cone by overlapping the straight edges and sealing them with water. Fill the cone with the paneer filling. Apply water on the edges and seal the samosa. Repeat with the remaining dough and filling. Heat oil in a deep frying pan. Deep fry the samosas until golden brown and crispy. Remove from oil and drain on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
Serve and enjoy
Step 4:Serve the hot and crispy vegetarian paneer samosas with mint chutney or tamarind chutney. Enjoy!
