Time to twist this crispy delight into many flavours
Street food, without a doubt, determines a place’s flavour. It is typically recommended to any traveller or food lover who wants to get a true experience of a region. Street food, from Delhi’s paranthe wali gali to Indore’s chatori gali, is known for its delectability.
When it comes to samosas, a deep-fried Indian food that has been popular since ancient times, it is believed that its first recipes were discovered in Arab culinary books between the 10th and 13th centuries. However, this beloved food has come a long way since its inception. Samosa, the ideal chai partner, has been experimented with in a variety of ways in recent years. Chowmein samosa, macaroni samosa, chicken samosa, pizza samosa, pasta samosa, and many more are among the vegetarian and non-vegetarian samosa varieties. Baked samosas have also become popular in recent years.
The samosa can form the majority of any meal by varying in size, cooking style (either baked or fried), and filling. It can be a snack, an appetiser, or a whole meal on its own. All of this is possible depending on how the samosa is made and served.
A good blogger recently shared a video of a samosa sandwich from a street food stall in Vadodara, Gujarat.
Samosa can be prepared and enjoyed in different ways:
Samosa Chaat: A lip-smacking snack that is unquestionably one of the most popular street foods. The samosa is cut into bite-size pieces and served with masala, chutney, a variety of spices, and several other garnishes, depending on the taste. This one can also be done at home, and with so many spices and sauces to choose from, the possibilities for experimenting are endless.
Samosa Bhel Puri: You can make a delicious, quick, and incredibly crunchy bhel out of your samosa. Simply throw crushed samosa bits in tamarind chutney with the traditional rice puffs or murmura, onions, tomatoes, puris, and other ingredients. That’s all it takes to make the crispiest, tastiest bhel you've ever had!
Samosa Pav: Samosa pav is yet another innovation. It's essentially a samosa placed in a pav, which can be found at Indian street stalls and restaurants. Samosa pav also makes a fantastic lunch or evening snack if you are running short of time and crave to eat something crispy. While learning to prepare samosas may seem daunting at first, after you've figured out the mysteries of this delicacy, you won't regret the time you spent learning. If you’re short on time, ready-to-eat samosa choices are always available.
Simply pop them in the oven for a few minutes and you'll have delicious, steaming hot samosas.
