Sama Sama Samosas

Samosas may seem simple, but these popular snacks have a rich culinary heritage that can be traced back to before the tenth century, originating in the Middle East before being introduced by traders to India and beyond.

We recently sampled Sama Sama Samosas, a Malaysian brand founded by Aishah Hanif, relying on a family recipe by her Yemeni mother-in-law. Sama Sama calls these authentic Arabian samosas, blending the influences of both Yemen and Saudi Arabia, infusing the filling of minced beef or chicken with a special mix of spices and seasonings that taste pretty distinctive - lingeringly savoury, with a mildly fiery sharpness, altogether absolutely delicious.

We found these fresh samosas easy and fuss-free to fry, resulting in a golden exterior that's gorgeously crunchy, with an impeccable proportion of skin and stuffing, with hints of onions, garlic and long beans for nuanced flavours. Certainly some of the tastiest samosas we've tried, especially if you love crispy indulgences.

Sama Sama Samosas can be reached on facebook.com/SamaSamaSamosa or 017-3096067 - the samosas cost RM25 for 20 pieces at a full weight of about 600 grams, easily sufficient for six to seven people for a snack.

Many thanks to Sama Sama Samosas for this treat.

  1. I must say that the samosas are fried to golden perfection...which I believe is not your work, Sean...wuahahahaha! ;D I like that you can fry it straight from frozen state. RM25 seems reasonable (before adding delivery charges) for samosas that look so good :)
