Step 3) Mincing the chicken 
Take boneless chicken pieces in a blender and mince the chicken and add it to the onion masala mixture.Also add a little bit of water (1/4 cup) to help the chicken cook fast.Cook for 4-5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked and all the water is evaporated.Finally add some chopped coriander leaves and turn off the heat. Chicken should be dry without any moisture .



Step 4) Making Samosa Sheet:
Now after 30 minute and divide the dough into 6 equal balls and lets start to spread the dough.Take one ball and press it lightly and and roll it into a thin sheet. cover the rest of the balls with damn cloth to prevent drying.
Once rolled cut the sheet at the center to form 2 semi circles.Now take a semicircle and wet half of the straight end with some water and join the two ends bring the watered end on the top.


Step 5) Filling the Samosa sheet with chicken keema
Now fill the samosa sheet with the chicken stuffing and again apply some water at the edges (all around the edges) and press it firmly to form a tight seal.Make sure there are no openings.


Step 6) Frying the Samosas
After stuffing heat oil in a pan and drop the samosas.It is very important to fry the samosas on a low temperature.If the temperature of the oil it very hot then the outer dough will get browned soon and will taste raw so fry the samosas on a medium - low heat flipping the samosas in between.Once all the sides are golden and crispy take it off from the heat and serve.
