  • 1 pack carb counter street taco flour tortillas linked above
  • thick flour and water paste to seal


  • 2 cups red potatoes peeled, diced and boiled
  • 1/2 cup peas cooked
  • 1/4 cup onion finely chopped
  • 2 green chilies finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp coriander leaves chopped
  • 1/3 tsp Kashmiri Laal Mirch
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander seeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground pomegranate seeds
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice or 1 tsp tamarind chutney


  • In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients listed under filling, mix well and set aside.
  • Carefully cut the tortillas in half, then cover so they don't dry out. Make a thick paste by adding a little water to some flour. This will act as the glue for the Samosas.
  • Follow the folding instructions listed above with coinciding images to make a cone shape. Make sure to use the flour glue to secure the edges so the cone doesn't open. Add about 1 teaspoon of the filling, lightly press to flatten, then using the flour glue, seal the top of the cone. (You may have leftover filling)
  • At this point you can cook them or freeze them. To freeze, store in an airtight container, using parchment paper in-between layers to prevent sticking.
  • Deep frying instructions: Heat oil in a pan on a medium flame. Fry the samosas on a medium low flame for about 1.5-2 minutes on each side, or just until they turn golden brown. Keep in mind that the tortilla is already cooked so you're just looking for a golden brown color.
  • AirFryer instructions: Brush the samosas lightly with oil of your choice. Airfare for 4-5 minutes at 380 F, flipping the Samoas halfway through. they won't get the same uniform color as deep frying.
