How to make Mini Dal Samosa Curry/Sabzi Recipe

  1. To begin making the Mini Dal Samosa Gravy Recipe, we need to first prepare the gravy. 

  2. In a heavy bottomed pan, add 1 tablespoon of cooking oil and heat it on a medium flame. Once the oil is hot, add Cardamom, Black Pepper, Cloves, Cinnamon, Javitri and saute for few seconds. 

  3. Next add cashew nuts, green chilli, ginger, chopped onion and tomatoes. Mix well and add 1/2 cup water and Salt (as per your taste)

  4. Cover the pan and boil this mixture until the onions and tomato become soft. Turn off the flame and let this mixture cool. 

  5. Once the mixture is cool, add it to a mixer and blend until smooth. 

  6. Strain the paste to remove any big chunk of ingredients (optional to give fineness to gravy). Keep aside. 

  7. In the same heavy bottomed pan, heat one tablespoons of oil and add bay leaf, black cardamom. Once the spices release the aromas add in the ground tomato and onion mixture, add Kashmiri Red Chilli powder, Turmeric powder, Coriander powder, Garam Masala and the crushed Kasuri Methi.

  8. Mix well and cook for 10 mins at low flame. Add fresh cream and sugar and stir it well into the gravy. 

  9. Simmer for a few more minutes and add the mini Samosas in the gravy. Turn off the flame.

  10. Make sure to add the mini dal samosas to the gravy only one hour before serving, else the samosa will get completely soggy.
