Indian gatherings and celebrations are never without samosas. No celebration could be complete without these triangular-shaped crusted pies stuffed with a savoury filling of potatoes, peas, green chilis, spices, and meat or lentils if preferred.
These tasty parcels have long been a part of Indian tradition, often serving as a snack or appetizer, but are just as easily devoured any time of the day.
The samosa’s perfect balance of spices in the likes of cardamom, coriander and ginger produce a complex and flavourful filling that is sweet, spicy, and savoury all at the same time. Add to that the crispy and fluffy texture of the dough wrapped around the soft filling, and you have a truly masterful culinary delight for your tastebuds to feast on.
As a regular part of Indian cuisine, samosas can often be seen being sold on the streets of India, and every version is bound to be just a tad bit different from the last. Samosas sold on the streets tend to be quite heavy in oil, however, as their cooking process requires deep-frying in order to attain the crispy outer crust. Although the frying time of samosas is an important factor in achieving that crispiness without absorbing all the oil it’s cooked in, busy street vendors producing large amounts at a time for the hungry masses tend to have little time and attention to the cooking process; which may turn off the more health-conscious customers.
But fret not, if you are one of the health afficionados. Home-cooked samosas are far healthier and tastier than the street-sold kind. You can enjoy these ultimately delicious pastries without worrying about your calorie count if you purchase ones that you know have been home-cooked, instead of produced carelessly.
At Curry Corner, Melbourne’s original and most well-known Indian food shop, we have been offering these luscious pies for more than 40 years now, personally home-cooked by owner Mrs. Jaya Sharma, a passionate cook in all things Indian.
Curry Corner’s samosas have become famously known in Melbourne and around Australia through the years for authentic Indian taste, combining a wonderful blend of spices in the filling with a perfectly cooked crispy dough that remains light. Mrs. Sharma has perfected her recipe of the samosa to the enjoyment of loyal customers, and has never changed it through the years.
Yet while Curry Corner may be most well-known for its delicious samosa takeaway, our shop also offers an array of Indian food that exhibits that exquisite blend of spices characteristic of traditional Indian cuisine.
