The next step is to prepare the filling for the Soy Granule Samosa Recipe. Bring 2 cups of water to boil and add 1 teaspoon salt and soya granules into hot water. Let the soy granules submerge fully and rest in hot water for about 12 to 15 minutes.
Once soaked and soft, drain the water and keep the soya granules aside. If using fresh green peas, blanch them until they get cooked. Drain and keep aside.

Turn off the heat and let the filling cool down completely.
Now, knead the dough once again and divide into 6 equal portions. Take a portion, and roll out a portion of dough into 6 to 7 inch diameter circle. Using a sharp knife, cut the circle into 2.
Take a portion of the samosa dough, join the edges to make a cone. Add a 1 or 2 tablespoons of the soya granule samosa filling in the centre. Apply water on the edges to seal the samosa cone. Seal the edges tight and repeat the same process with the remaining dough and make the samosas.
Heat oil in a deep fry pan for frying. Once oil turns hot, reduce the flame to medium and drop 2 to 3 samosas at a time and fry until golden brown on all the sides. Drain on absorbent paper.
