Samosas: The Snack of India

IMG_6912_preview.jpg

Undoubtedly one of our most popular and frequently-ordered appetizers, samosas are a delight to the senses. 

Historically a vegetarian dish, samosas can be filled with savory and spicy additions like lentils, peas, noodles, onions, potatoes, minced lamb, and beef. Also popular in a myriad of Asian countries and the Mediterranean, and Africa, the actual name for these turnovers varies by region, but all of the names refer to this same, dumpling-like snack that we call a samosa.

At All India Cafe, we make vegetarian samosas, stuffed with potatoes, peas, spices, herbs, and serve with a tamarind chutney for a flavor juxtaposition that is sure to thrill your palate. 

Our Samosas are also available as a vegan appetizer if you'd like -- just ask!
