Method

1. To prepare pesto, coarsely grind together basil leaves, coriander leaves, broken green chilli, walnuts, salt, vinegar and olive oil into a paste. Add some water and grind into a smooth paste. Transfer in a bowl.

3. To prepare stuffing, heat remaining butter in a non-stick pan. Add flour and sauté for 1 minute.

4. Add milk, mix and cook for 1 minute. Add cheese, capsicum, corn kernels and macaroni, mix and cook for 1-2 minutes.

5. Add salt, dried oregano and chilli flakes and mix well. Transfer in a bowl and cool to room temperature.

6. Heat sufficient oil in a kadai.

7. Divide the dough into equal portions and roll out into thin oval sheets and halve them.

8. Apply some water on one side of each halve, twist and press the edges to make a cone. Put some stuffing inside each cone and press the edges to seal, applying some water.

9. Deep-fry the samosa in hot oil on low heat till golden brown and crisp. Drain on absorbent paper.
