WORLD SAMOSA DAY
Every year on September 5th, World Samosa Day celebrates this mood-lifting food. It’s also a day to try samosa for the first time or share it with a friend.
Samosa is a popular Indian food that dates back to the 9th century. Although samosa probably originated in Persia, the food is particularly popular in India. Besides India, people enjoy samosas in Egypt, Libya, South Africa, and the Middle East. You can find some of the best samosas in the world in the following locations:
- New Delhi, India
- Bangkok, Thailand
- Kasauli, India
- Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
- Doha, Qatar
- Jodhpur, India
- Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Even a restaurant in Las Angeles, California, serves some of the most delicious samosas in the world. Grocery stores worldwide also sell frozen samosa. Those who eat samosas promise that it will enhance your mood, wherever you eat them.
The basic ingredients for this pyramid-shaped dish include oil, butter, salt, dough, and warm water. The dough is deep-fried and then stuffed with various fillings. Samosa usually contains onion, meat, potato, or ghee inside. Spicing up samosas is easy – just add a little coriander, cumin, or pepper. Most people in India eat their samosa while drinking a cup of Chai tea. Some people eat samosa as an appetizer, but it’s not uncommon to eat this calorie-dense food as a meal.
