About Samusa Thouk Recipe:

A Burmese version on samosa served with a delicious soup. It also comes in the texture of salad(thoke). This dish takes a little patience to make but every spoon is blissful. This Burmese dish is inspired by their neighboring country India. There are many different styles of soup. There are sweet broths that are clear and bland and contain meat or fish and certain vegetables. There are bitter soups that are also clear but peppery and spicy, usually to go with salads as a fast food combination. Some soups are rather sour and made so with the aid of tamarind pulp or tomato. They mostly contain vegetables to lessen the richness of a meal.
