The key to making a samosa lies in the perfect blend of ingredients. Mutton mince should be perfectly cooked and dry. Mutton should be boneless and tender, and it is advisable to buy mutton from known sources. The outer layer of Mutton Samosa is prepared from a simple dough comprising of flour, butter, cumin seeds, oil and cold water. The dough should not be watery and should be kneaded to a smooth dough. The dough is then rolled out into thin circles, ready to be filled with the prepared mutton mixture. One of the defining features of samosas is the triangular shape achieved through the artful folding. The edges are sealed so the contents do not spill out during the frying process. Mutton is nutritious, rich in protein and other vital nutrients required for body. You can explore a well detailed Mutton Samosa recipe here.
