An Indian samosa is a flaky crust made of all-purpose flour and filled with spiced potatoes and peas. For samosa making, you do need a few special ingredients if you want an authentic flavor like the ajwain or carom seeds for the wrapper and pomegranate seed powder for stuffing.

Both are easily available online or at Indian grocery stores. One of the things to keep in mind, if you want that perfect flaky wrapper, then the temperature of your frying oil has to be very low. The samosa should bubble just lightly when dropped in the oil. This ensures that the wrapper fries are up all crispy and golden brown and flaky.
