Brought to you by the Leicester Curry Awards, National Samosa Week has been launched with the aim to encourage everyone to try, taste and enjoy these savoury bundles of joy.
Although popular with the South Asian community, the triangle-shaped delicacy is said to originate from the Middle East and was eaten by travelling merchants. It is likely that this is how the tasty parcels made their way to other parts of the world including India and Pakistan ultimately leading to the creation of the humble South Asian snack we know today.
The more-ish dish can be found on curry menus all over the UK if not the world and have garnered an immense amount of popularity. The aim of the week-long event is to use it to draw attention to the rich culture and food heritage of South Asia.
