Make the Samosas Filling

Pour water into a small bowl with flour, and mix well until it has a thin, glue-like consistency.

Boil the potatoes and chop into small bite-sized pieces. Put them in a medium bowl, then add  boiled peas, chopped onions, spices, coriander, and lemon juice. Mix everything together. Samosa filling is ready.

Place your pastry sheet on the cutting board. Lift one corner of half of the pastry sheet towards the center. Apply the flour glue.Lift the other edge of half and lay over the previous. Press to seal. Now, you have formed a dough cone.Hold the cone in your hand, and take about a tablespoon of filling and stuff the samosa. Seal the open lip with sealer. Fold the edge over. Press and seal.

Heat the oil in a deep pan on medium heat. Put in the samosas, and fry them on one side until they are golden brown. Then turn them over and fry on the other side.

Take them out of the pan on a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb the excess oil. You can serve them hot with sauce or chutney.
