  • Bhuna masala 130 grams

  • Raisins 1 tablespoon

Put cottage cheese in a bowl, add bhuna masala, raisins, cashew nuts, green chillies and mix well.

Fold over one end of the straight edge and bring it to the middle of the rounded edge. Now fold over the other end and bring it over to the middle of the rounded edge to rest over the first end to make a seam.

Stuff the cone with the cottage cheese mixture. Bring together the seam and the pleat on the rounded edge and gently press the entire open end of the cone to make samosa.
