Trivia

The samosa or ‘Sambosa’ is said to have originated in the Middle East, and was introduced to the Indian Subcontinentby merchants from Central Asia in the 13th or 14th century. This traditional Indian snack seems to have an international history! We wholeheartedly welcomed the samosa and introduced our own variations, which are now widely appreciated and popular the world over.

In some parts of the world, samosas are filled with minced lamb or beef. Lentils, potatoes, onions, vegetables and dry fruits are the main components in samosas of North India. ‘Shingaras’ are the Eastern states’ answer to the North Indian samosa.
