A samoosa, also known as samosa, is a savory pastry snack stuffed with a range of fillings from lightly curried lamb or chicken mince to potato and sweetcorn. Samoosas are a popular snack in South Africa and are usually smaller in size than samoosas (samosas) elsewhere in the world.
The samosa originated in the Middle East and Central Asia. It then spread to Africa, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and elsewhere. The term samosa and its variants cover a family of pastries and dumplings popular from northeastern Africa to western China.
Why is Samosa Triangle?
It is the most popular South Asian snack in North America. The word comes from the Persian word ‘sambusa’ which means triangle, due to its shape. The great Mughals brought it with them, like so many other cultures, cuisine, and refinements. Generally, Samosa is triangular in shape.
