Let's start our list with the first one which is the samosa. During the 13th and 14th centuries, samosa was brought up in India by central Asia. It is alleged that samosa was introduced by the central Asian traders or immigrant chefs who came to India for occupation.
These chefs used to cook in the royal kitchens of the Delhi sultanate. The Abbasid era poet Ishaq al-Mawsili was the first one who mentioned sanbusaj and Arab cookery books have the recipe of sanbusaj, sanbusak and sanbusaq.
Many great scholars of the 13th and 14th century like amir khusro, and Ibn Battuta has mentioned the different type of samosa made of meat, almonds, walnuts and spices.
There is a vast variety of samosas in India. A samosa can be vegetarian or non-vegetarian it depends on its stuffing. In the East Indian states Assam, Jharkhand, Bihar, and west Bengal, singers are famous which is a different type of samosa made of potatoes and cauliflower. It is a tea-time snack same as samosa taken with chutney, sauce or chaat masala. In Hyderabad Andhrapradesh, lukhmi (another type of samosa) contains the stuffing of mincemeat and has a thicker crust is another variant of samosa.
In south Indian states samosa is slightly different in taste and folded in different ways. Our Indian birthday parties are imperfect without samosa. You can find samosa in every state at any shop as it is well-liked. Samosa is filled with spiced potatoes, peas and spicy ingredients and after this stuffing, it is fried.
