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

Usage

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
