Steps to Prepare Samosas:

  1. Put all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, and salt in a mixing bowl. Cut butter into small pieces and add to flour. Rub butter into flour with your fingertips until mixture looks like bread crumbs. Mix in enough water, a little at a time, to form a firm dough.
  2. Knead dough in bowl for about 2 or 3 minutes, or until smooth. Cover bowl and refrigerate while making filling.
  3. When filling is ready, remove dough from refrigerator and place on a floured surface. knead dough for about 5 minutes.
  4. Divide dough into pieces about the size of walnuts and roll each piece into a smooth ball with your hands.
  5. Roll balls into thin rounds with a floured rolling pin. Cut each round in half.
  6. Put about 1 teaspoon , filling onto a piece of dough. Fold dough over filling. Seal edges of dough with your fingers and then with the tines  of a fork, continue making samosas.
  7. In a work or a deep saucepan, heat oil over medium-high.(Oil should be deep enough to cover samosas while cooking.) Carefully place one samosa in oil. If samosa fries to a golden brown in about 3 minutes, the oil is at the right temperature. If it takes longer than this, increase temperature of oil. When oil is at the right temperature, continue frying samosas, a few at a time, for 3 minutes each.  Remove samosas with a  slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Eat hot or at room temperature.
