The Origin of Samosa

We all know Samosa is a street food and love to have Samosa but do you know the history of Samosa and how it originated? The triangular shaped savory snack has a Central Asia origin. Arab culinary books from the 10th to the 13th century included recipes with the titles Sanbusak, Sanbusaq, and Sanbusaj, all of which are derived from the Persian term Sanbosag. The name Samosa comes from the Middle Persian word Sanbosag, which means triangular pastry. Later, the snack received the royal approval of India, and it eventually began to symbolize both Indian culture and food.

Preparation of the scrumptious Samosa

The crispy outer layer of Samosa is made with Maida (all-purpose flour). The filling of the vegetarian Samosa is made up by using boiled potatoes that are mashed and mixing Indian spices, chilies and more. The filling is then added into the triangular cone. After that, it is deep fried until it is lightly golden brown in color. The piping hot and spicy Samosa is typically served with a side of green chutney and tamarind chutney.
