How to make Chicken Samosa With Mint Sauce?

Chicken Samosa With Mint Sauce is a simple and delicious dish of Indian cuisine. Crispy, hot samosas with chicken filling and homemade masala seasoning! To prepare this dish, we will make homemade masala seasoning, mint sauce and samosas themselves.

The recipe for homemade massala can be different for everyone, we make it from mint leaves, lemon zest, cloves, paprika, ginger, cinnamon, coriander, cumin, garlic. The smell of this seasoning is incomparable with anything. The holistic and rich aroma of masala is so complex for me that I cannot distinguish individual ingredients.

For mint sauce, you only need yogurt, mint leaves, a pinch of salt and pepper, sumac or lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil.

Samosas are prepared from filo dough (a recipe for homemade filo dough) or you can use puff pastry without yeast. Roll out the yeast-free dough tightly and make rectangular sheets.

Directions:

1. Masala: Preheat a frying pan over medium heat. Add coriander and cumin seeds. Fry for 5 minutes.
2. Grind coriander seeds and cumin seeds in a mortar.
3. Add cloves, ground paprika, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, lemon zest, peeled and crushed garlic clove, crushed mint leaves (1 teaspoon) to the mortar. Mix with a pestle. Masala is ready.
4. Chop the red onion, jalapeno and coriander leaves finely.
5. Heat the frying oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
6. Add onion and jalapeno. Fry for 5 minutes.
7. Add minced chicken, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 tablespoon of Masala seasoning. Cook for 15 minutes or until the minced meat is ready and there is almost no moisture left. Stir regularly.
8. Turn off the heat and add chopped coriander leaves. Cool the mixture.
9. Prepare a baking sheet: put baking paper on a baking sheet.
10. On a sheet of filo dough (12-15 inches or 30 * 40 cm), put the filling on the right side (about 2 tablespoons or more).
11. Grease the edges of the dough with egg yolk.
12. Connect the upper right corner of the dough to the bottom of the dough sheet. You should get a triangle that covers the filling completely.
13. Lubricate the remaining left part of the dough (a small rectangle) with egg yolk and drag from left to right, cover the triangular part.
14. The remaining small piece of dough is hidden behind a triangular base. It turns out that samosa is triangular in shape.
15. We also make triangular samosas with the remaining filling and dough.
16. Spread on a baking sheet as much as you want.
17. Heat the oven at 375°F (190°C) and bake until the dough is crisp and golden.
18. Mint sauce: mix yogurt with crushed mint leaves (1 tablespoon), 1 teaspoon sumac, ¼ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper, 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil.
Serving: Serve hot with mint sauce.
