Knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth and roll into a ball.

Brush each edge with a little water and form a cone shape around your fingers sealing the dampened edge.
Fill the cases with a tablespoon of your chosen mixture and press the two dampened edges together to seal the top of the cone.
Deep fry the samosas in hot oil until crisp and brown take out and drain on a paper towel.
