Samosas are one of the few Indian fried treats that I just can’t get enough of. They are savory, puff pastry packets of heaven: spicy and sweet, with a great crispy crust surrounding a piping hot filling. When madewell, they aren’t too oily and are just fried to perfection.
Samosas are the most famous Indian treats on the Planet! Yes, there are other fried treats like pakoras but nothing comes close to Samosas. You can keep popping one after the other in your mouth like candy. The savory crispy packets of delight: sweet, tangy, spicy, with the excellent fillings of your choice. The most classic is potatoes and green peace with spices, however there are 100s of varieties out there, such as stuffed with cheese, chocolate, lamb, chicken just to name a few. Only your imagination is the limit. Every Samosa’s best friends are the chutneys, tamarind and mint chutney. Without chutneys a Samosa has no identity.
This simple treat is a true global rockstar! The journey wasn’t always easy but impact is one for the history books. To put things into perspective there is always a street vendor selling samosas next to schools, universities, hospitals, and bollywood movie shootings. A five star restaurant will have it on the menu served on a fancy plate but the samosa is a samosa doesn’t matter how you serve it. Once Indians started emigrating across the globe, Samosas came along.
Samosas are served to guests pretty much at any occasion imaginable, from small get togethers at home to weddings and birthdays. Especially popular amongst children and adults alike. I never met a person yet in my life who doesn’t like a fresh crispy samosa.
This simple treat is so good that typically each guest will eat two some even four. When made perfectly the crust is crispy, the filling savory and soft! And of course this treat is best enjoyed eating by hands leave your fork and knife aside. Pick one up slide it through the chutney, mmmmm heaven!
