Kashmiri chilli chicken stuffed samosas wins crucial contest in South Africa; know more
Way too popular and everyday Indian snack samosa stuffed with Kashmiri chilli chicken fillings has beaten many recipes to win over a contest held in South Africa.
The contest was organised by the largest national newspaper for the Indian community in South Africa.
Among the various entries in the competition included samosas that featured almonds and cashews drizzled with chocolate, chocolate covered in edible glitter, Margherita pizza filling and chicken jalapeno.
The South African Indian speciality samosa (also referred to as samoosa) is a deep-fried flat version of the traditional Punjabi snack filled with a variety of savoury or sweet treats in a crispy pastry.
Salma Agjee won the contest organised by the weekly Post after her daughter submitted her recipe.
There were also two other sections of the competition, which was held at a public fair in Durban.
Granny figure Roxana Naseem, in her sixties, who has been running a samosa-making business for several decades showed her skill to beat others by filling 10 samosas in under 60 seconds in a neat stack. >
