A fried or baked pastry with savoury filling.
The filling usually consists of potatoes,peas and condiments.There are vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian fillings done.I always thought that Samosa must have had an Indian origin.To my surprise, I found that it initially originated in the middle east as early as in the 10th Century and was called sambosa. Interestingly,they came to India with the middle eastern cooks ,which were brought here during the mughal era. Well their origin may be middle eastern and eaten in the whole world,but the love for Samosas in the whole country in truly Indian.Here in India, its majorly a vegetarians treat and potato beings the main filling.
I personally am just a samosa lover.I just keep finding a reason to cook them or order.But as mentioned in my earlier posts RAINS just bring these in my kitchen automatically.Anyone who knows me well, knows that if its raining you can surely visit my kitchen and get yourself a yummy samosa treat.
