Samosa is the Indian snack that pops up in one’s mind, whenever one craves for something healthy, yet so delicious. This popular appetizer can be eaten anytime and is called by different names in distinct regions of the globe. People in India and all over the world, believe that this triangular shaped savory belonged to South Asian soil but it actually traveled long way from Central Asia several decades back (introduced by some middle eastern chefs during the Delhi sultanate rule in the southern part of the country).
Several historical accounts refer to this snack as sanbusaq, sanbusaj or sanbusak – everything derived from the Persian word called ‘sanbosag’. This snack can be either simply filled with boiled potatoes and peas or any minced meat, of course with spices and herbs.
Having originated in India, this popular Indian snack has eventually spread across several countries around the world. Though culture and tradition has brought twist to the dish – fillings such as meat – turkey, beef, chicken, lentils, vegetables (peas & potatoes), cheese, cream, apple, caramel and coconut; the original vegetable samosa remains the same.
Surrounded with a warm seasoning and a mixture of vegetables – peas, carrots and potatoes, the vegetable samosa is a favorite among all. This highly craving baked or deep fried snack can be enjoyed with sweet tamarind or mint chutney.
