Samosa Chaat Special at Serene Cuisine of India

A short history of the Indian samosa

Samosa is a popular Indian delicacy that wasn’t invented by the Indians. Its origin traces back to Central Asia, but the Indians were smart enough to adapt to its taste and create versions of their own. Samosa is said to have originated from Egypt before finding its way to Central Asia.

In Central Asia, it was initially known as “samsa” after the pyramids in the region. Other historical accounts refer to it as “sanbusak,” “sanbusaj,” and “sanbosag.” Samosa has different variations in various parts of the world.

For example, in Kazakhstan, it is baked and has a thicker and crumblier crust. Some of the fillings used in this region include onions, meat, pumpkin, and minced lamb. Alternatively, the Jewish cuisine fills up their samosas with mashed chickpeas.
