Say “Samosa”, a triangular snack pops up in one’s mind and you are salivating. This popular snack has travelled from Egypt to Libya to Central Asia to India. Historical accounts also refer to it as Sambusaq, Sambusak, Samsa, Sambusaj all deriving from the persian word Sanbosag. Having traveled extensively under varied names, this was introduced by the middle eastern chefs during the delhi sultanate rule.This highly adaptable deep fried or baked snack can be filled with anything from boiled potatoes and peas to any kind of minced meat with spices. This is often enjoyed with Mint chutney or Sweet tamarind chutney.
