My “dinner” today was three plates of samosa chaat at a local dhaba. And I am not ashamed of myself. I was hungry, and I’m not too fond of what we get for dinner today. Also the samosa plates are really cheap, like Rs. 20 a plate or something. And let me tell you, three plates do kinda fill you up. I mean, I ate at about 7-7.30, and I didn’t actually feel hungry till about 12.30 (which is when I decided that I should probably write this 😛 ).
Now I took no photo of the plates (maybe next time 😛 ), but let me paint you a word picture. But before that, you do know what a samosa is right? If you don’t, let me tell you, you are missing out on so much. Anyway, for the ignorant (don’t hate me), a samosa is basically a pastry filled with spicy potatoes, and other masalas I’m not really sure of; I’ve never really cooked one in my life, and also the masala differs based on where you eat. Now what happens in the samosa chaat, you ask? The local dhaba crushes this samosa, pours a spicy chutney on it, followed by a sweet one, then chole (which is basically spicy chick peas), and curd, garnished with a dash of onions, and a sprig of coriander. Sounds like too much? It’s really not. And it tastes really, really good. Like the perfect combination of flavours. And then people like me, eat it for dinner.
Oh, and one more thing. Why do I call this post “My Samosa ‘Obsession'”, you ask? Well, this is not the only samosa I eat. There is a small canteen in my college that makes samosas. And we eat said samosas almost every single day. But of course, that’s another article.
Till next time!
