Fancy a little snack that goes really well with your afternoon tea? Samosas are perfect for this!
They are distinctly triangular in shape. The crust is thin and flaky filled with a savoury filling of curried potatoes and/or minced meat like beef, chicken or lamb. Of course, they can be made without using any meat too.
Samosas come in many variations given their cultural diffusion in origins that stem from the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, the Mediterranean, East and North Africa influence to name a few.
The fillings and the thickness of the crust differ. I prefer mine crispy thin; using the skins of spring rolls give this effect. And, if there is one thing you should know about a piece of samosa: A samosa is not a samosa if it isn’t tetrahedral!
It’s a delightful snack and here’s how you can make your own home-made samosas with just a few main ingredients.
