Ever have one of those days when you’re craving for Indian food but don’t want to have to go through the hassle of choosing through a long litany of curries, masalas, biryanis, and whatnot? When that particular craving hits, grab a couple samosas.
The two above are from The New Bombay Canteen‘s stall over at the Glorietta’s Food Choices. Filled to the gills with potatoes and peas, they’re beautifully spiced with a mix of turmeric, cumin, and coriander seeds. And, while they’re deep-fried, they aren’t greasy or soggy at all; the crust is wonderfully crisp.
Samosas at this particular establishment come with two sauces: the sweetly tangy tamarind and the fragrant, slightly bitter cilantro. I suggest you dip your samosa in one, then the other before taking a bite. The flavor dynamic is unbelievably good.
One last thing…
…lassi – in this case, a strawberry lassi, is the best thing for washing down your sub-continental snack. It’s non-negotiable, trust me. 🙂
