Deep Fried Dictionary: Samosas

Samosas: Filled and fried dough bites; South Asian

They’re basically like fried dumplings or pot stickers but with more Indian-style spices and fillings such as coriander, chickpeas, curry, peas, tamarind or potatoes. I always associate them with India, but their popularity extends to North Africa, South Africa and all over Asia.  You can usually find them on the appetizer section of restaurants specializing in cuisine from these areas.

Recipe to try: Free-form Samosas from Big Girls, Small Kitchen fairly traditional ingredients, also makes you feel better if you make them and they don’t look like perfect triangles, which is their known shape.
