While the essence of the samosa – a delicious filling in a flaky fried crust – remains the same, the fillings range from the classic potato to feta cheese. Many delicious variations are available all over the world. Even in the age of fast food, samosa continues to dominate parties, weddings, and chai time.
One of the most well-known non vegetarian versions of the samosa is the Keema Samosa. It is often featured as an Iftar treat. The filling consists of a number of spices including Tata Sampann Meat Masala. mixed with minced meat.
