  2. Heat the pan with vegetable oil, add coriander seeds, black mustard seeds, fry on a medium flame till the aroma comes out. 
  3. Now add chopped onions, garlic, turmeric, Kashmiri chilli powder and 1 tsp salt. Fry on medium heat for a couple of minutes. 
  4. Add chickpeas and potatoes and cook for a few minutes. 
  5. Garnish with coriander. Transfer to a bowl. 
  6. For the samosa, cut your filo pastry into three strips. 
  7. Place 1 tablespoon of filling in one corner of pastry, leaving a slight border. Don’t overfill triangles or they will split. 
  8. Gently lift pastry corner with filling and fold tightly diagonally to create a triangle (take care not to tear pastry). Continue folding, retaining triangle shape and seal by brushing the beaten egg.
  9. Fry the samosas for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown.

Chef’s recommendation : Decore cucumber and tomatoes to prevent chaat from getting soggy.
