Samosas come from northern India and central Asia, and are known all the way to Ouzbekistan. These little pastries have traveled across all the oriental shores of the Indian ocean, and then across the whole world with the emigration of Indian workers that started in the 19th century. The shape of the pastry is triangular, and wrapped in a thin wheat paste that contains a meat and vegetable stuffing, with peppers and spices. As far as taste is concerned, it has been modified to fit into the local culinary habits.
It is such a sublime pleasure when you are struck by hunger, to enjoy a delightful samosas soft on the inside, crispy on the outside. It will highlight your buffets, and spark your appetizer plates. As soon as you put it into your mouth, you will recognize its flavour as an invitation to travel. Its culinary harmony will create a passionate desire in you and you’ll soon become addicted to samosas.
To design a good SAMOSA
The thin dough must have good resistance to tear, to ambient drying, during determination of farce, and frying flexibility give a good crisp, durable and without oil retention.
Implementation of the samosa is almost to haute couture, triangular, shaped by four successive folds, from a strip of dough, coat texture air pranks salted or sweetened, to become sublime stuffed triangles.
