Homemade Snacks & Sweets for Diwali 2022
Here is the list of homemade snacks and sweets for Diwali 2022 that you can cook and enjoy with your guests at your home while having an eco-friendly diwali.
We all love this crispy and spicy snack called the samosa. For cooking a homemade samosa you would need 2 cup all purpose flour, 2 cup refined oil, 1 tbsp cumin seeds, ½ tbsp coriander seeds, 1 teaspoon coriander powder, 1 teaspoon red chili powder, 1 teaspoon kasoori methi leaves, 1 teaspoon carom seeds, 1/4 cup water, 5 boiled potatoes, 1/2 teaspoon garam masala powder, salt as required, 1 teaspoon coriander leaves, 2 tablespoon ghee, 1 handful raw peanuts.
To make delicious samosas at home, first, make the filling. Put a stanless steel pan on medium flame and add 2 tsp oil in it. Once the oil is hot enough, add cumin seeds and allow them to crackle.
Now, add whole coriander seeds, ginger and green chili. Saute for a minute and then add chopped cashews and raisins, peanuts if you like them, boiled and mashed potatoes, cumin powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, red chili powder, salt to taste, kasoori methi leaves, coriander leaves. Mix well and saute for 2 minutes. Your stuffing is ready!
Now, to prepare the dough, take a mixing bowl and combine all-purpose flour along with carom seeds and salt. Mix and then add ghee and start kneading by adding a little water at a time. Ensure that you add water gradually and make a firm dough. A soft dough will not make your samosas crispy. Cover the dough with a damp muslin cloth and keep aside for about half an hour.
Once done, roll out a few small-sized balls from the dough. Flatten them further with the help of your palms and then with a rolling pin. Give them a round shape and cut them in half. Now dip your hands in water, fold the edges of the semi-circle in order to give it a cone shape.
Take the filling with the help of a spoon and stuff it in the cone. Seal the ends properly by pressing the edges lightly with your fingers. Then, heat oil in Avias World Fry Pan stainless steel and deep fry the homemade samosas on low heat until they turn golden brown and crispy. Serve with tomato ketchup and green chutney. Enjoy it as a tea-time snack!
