Samosa

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

A samosa is a common snack in South Asia. It is believed that it originated in Central Asia prior to the 10th century.[1]

It generally consists of a fried triangular-/pyramid-shaped pastry shell with a savory potato, onion and pea stuffing, but other stuffings like minced meat and fish are often used. The size and shape of a samosa, as well as the consistency of the pastry used, can vary considerably. It is spicy and is often eaten with chutney, such as mint, coriander or tamarind. It is often savored with tea or coffee. It can also be prepared as a sweet form, rather than as a savory one. In the city of Hyderabad, India, a smaller version of the samosa with a thicker pastry crust and mince filled center is called a Luqmi.

Samosas are often served in chaat, along with the traditional accompaniments of yogurt, chutney, chopped onions and coriander, and chaat masala.

Samosas have become popular in the United Kingdom and East Africa, Persian Gulf countries as well. They are often called "Samboosa" or sambusac by the Arabs.

Baked samosas are a healthier alternative to the traditional fried ones.

Soup Recipes to break the fast with from Around the World

         

Adapted from: www.soupsong.com

ALGERIA: Jary (a thick lemony wheat vegetarian soup, bristling with green herbs and mint).
IRAN:  wheat or barley soup with meat.
LEBANON: Shorabit Addas (classic red lentil soup).
MALAYSIA: It's culturally popular to break the fast (called "bulan puasa") in restaurants here, where gorgeous culinary feasts are set out, including Sup Ekor Lembu (Oxtail Soup), Sup Lautan Bersantan (prawns, scallops, and crab), Sup Tulang Rusa, and Sup Ikan Haruan Tongrat.
MOROCCO: Harira--full of lamb, lentils, chickpeas, vegetables, herbs, spices, all stirred up with lemon and egg strands. Fantastic!
SAUDI ARABIA:  Tirbiyali (barley broth) is traditional, but so is Awatif Baarma's dates and Arabic coffee, followed by wheat soup (Shorobit Il-Jareesh) and samosas after maghrib prayers.
SYRIA: Fatima Shaaban says "must-haves are fried bread with meat, soup, and salad" - traditionally  Tirbiyali (barley broth) or the classic red lentil soup Shorabit Addas.
TUNISIA: North African Jary or Harira.
TURKEY: Yayla Corbasi, a tangy, buttery yoghurt soup deeply flavored with dill and made substantial with rice.
USA: Customs depend largely on cultural backgrounds, but it is noted that Rockets superstar Hakeem Olajuwon is known to pick up an order of "soup to go" during Ramadan at Anthony's Restaurant in Houston to eat after sunset.
YEMEN: Seena Mustapha breaks the fast with a traditional soup of wheat, milk, lamb, and fried onions followed by dates--all in a family setting.
