After a few seconds, add the potatoes and the peas. Add the garam masala, lemon juice, salt and mix well. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Cover and cook for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Add the chopped coriander and mix well.

Stir in the garam masala powder, green chiles. Remove from heat and add the lemon juice. Cool thoroughly and mix in the coriander leaves.

To prepare the pastry: Add the ghee, caraway seeds and salt to the flour. Rub in well. Add enough warm water to mix a soft dough. Knead until the dough feels soft to the touch. Fill these cones with the prepared filling, leaving about 1/2 cm. border on the top of the cone. Now moisten the top edges and press them hard together.

Deep fry the samosas in hot oil over medium heat until they are golden brown and drain on absorbent paper.
