In a bow, add maida and salt. Mix well. Gradually add the oil and start mixing the dough until it becomes crumbly. Add some water and knead to form a stiff dough. Cover it with a wet cloth and keep aside for 30 mins.

After sometime, knead the dough again and divide it into small portions.

For the filling, heat oil in a pan. Add jeera and fennel seeds and allow them to crackle. Add ginger, green chillies, onion, and fry for a few seconds.

Add coriander seeds, garam masala, dry mango powder, salt and mix well. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Add mashed potatoes and give everything a nice mix. Now, take it off the heat and add kasuri methi and coriander seeds. Mix well.

To make the potli, take a small dough ball and roll it out into a thin disc. Now, take some stuffing and place it in the center of the rolled disc.

Brush the edges of the disc with a little bit of water. Bring the edges together to form a potli. Gently press and seal the potli. (Make sure the stuffing remains in place).

Heat oil in a kadhai set on medium-high flame. Slide the potlis in the oil and deep-fry until golden brown and crispy. Potli samosa is ready!
