Photographer's Note

Not far from the place where the mangoes were lined up for sale was this "Chat" shop where Samosas along with other street food were being sold. Not entirely hygenic and certainly not a place for the affluent. The man in the red shirt is having an argument with the seller and the little girl is all attention.

Samosa :- samoosa is a fried or baked pastry with savory filling, such as spiced potatoes, onions, peas, lentils and sometimes ground lamb, ground beef or ground chicken. They may or may not also contain pine nuts. The samosa originated in the Middle East (where it is known as sambosa) prior to the 10th century.They were introduced toSouth Asia (India, Pakistan) during the Muslim Delhi Sultanate when cooks from Middle East and Central Asia migrated to work in the kitchens of the Sultan and the nobility. Its size and consistency may vary, but typically it is distinctly triangular or tetrahedral in shape. Indian samosas are usually vegetarian, and often accompanied by a mint sauce orchutney.With its origins in Uttar Pradesh, they are a popular entree appetizer or snack in South Asia, Southeast Asia, Central Asia and Southwest Asia, the Arabian Peninsula, the Mediterranean, the Horn of Africa, North Africa andSouth Africa.
