Did you know Samaosa is not Indian? Read the Samosa story

Samosa has been the most revered snack of India and almost every one especially from North Indian states have craved once to eat it. It's like samosa or nothing.Its like if you do not to eat anything but still do want to remain empty stomach, have one samosa and it will do the job.

The hot and crispy "Aloo" samosa (potato stuffed) is the most liked one, however different kind of stuffing such as meat stuffed, cheese stuffed and other many stuffing can be used to make.


It's with heavy heart we say that Samosa does not belong to India and have its origin in the Middle East where it is commonly known as Sambosa. It's history dates back to the 10th century. It is interesting to know that Abolfazl Beyhaqi (995-1077), one of the important historians of that time mentioned Sambosa in his book called Tarikh-e Beyhaghi. 

When traders of Central Asia traveled to India for business during 13th and 14th century they brought the recipe of Samosa along with them. Legendary poets like Amir Khusro and Ibn Batuta have mentioned Samosa and described it one of the major snacks served in the Mughal Royal court.


In Indian subcontinent samosa is mainly a snack eaten with Tea during morning and evening time. It is served freshly fried and hot with mint chutney. The main stuffing consists of meshed boiled potatoes,  and different spices are mixed with each and filled in wheat bread folded in triangle shaped structure.

In Iran and Iraq and other Muslim nations the stuffing is made of lamb meat, fish meat, chicken, cheese and many other local ingredients. In Israel, it is a semi-circular pocket of dough filled with mashed chickpeas, fried onions and spices.
