A samosa is a stuffed pastry and a popular snack around the world. It generally consists of a fried or baked triangular, semi-lunar or tetrahedral pastry shell with a savory filling, which may include spiced potatoes, onions, peas, coriander, and lentils, or ground beef or chicken. The size and shape of a samosa as well as the consistency of the pastry used can vary considerably, although it is mostly triangular. Samosas are often served with chutney.

When eaten in large quantities it can make you mental. When accompanied by jin jak music, it can make you sexy. It is the life-giving force of the sub-continent.

Preferably consumed with masala chai, ketchup, monsoon rains and one ciggy


Ramu: I ate off three plates of samosas fat-a-fat
Nasir: Bloddy Bugger couldn't even save one for me? Ok won't even give you one bite of my idli

A Samosapedian is a contributing member of the Samosapedia community. The ideal Samosapedian does not take life too seriously, loves words and celebrates the quirkiness of South Asian culture.

The perfect Samosapedia entry:
1. Is funny and irreverent
2. Avoids hate
3. Captures pronunciation, part of speech, usage, root language, related words and regional fields
4. Links to other existing or potentially new entries (both in the definition and usage fields; wrap any word with square brackets to make it linkable -- that is, sandwich the word between " and "").
5. Makes Logonathan salivate

Ultimately if you behave like a porki we will treat you like one. If you act like a hero, the community will reward you with high LPW scores.


You can take the pedia out of the samosapedian but you can never take the samosa out of us.
