Akuri Samosa is a great variant of traditional Indian snack which is fried or baked with usually savory filling inside. Akuri is a Parsi style of preparing eggs. In Akuri, eggs are scrambled but are runny and have a creamy texture unlike an egg bhurji. People who love samosa, would certainly want to try every type of filling. Akuri Samosa is a successful take on two old school recipes, however, comes out as a whole new experience. There’s nothing as comforting as an egg and nothing more satisfying than a fried flaky pastry. A fantastic Indian snack which has many variants in the world. From a regular snack shop on the street to a fancy restaurant, Samosa finds a prominent place in most of the eating outlets . So, if you have not tried samosa at home well then what are you waiting for? Impress your family and friends with this masterpiece of a recipe.
Akuri is a typical Parsi Egg Dish that comprises of lightly scrambled eggs with flavours of coriander and turmeric. In this recipe, the eggs are stuffed in the flaky samosa pastry making it one quick and delicious snack.
We have eaten Samosas in India in various cities, there could only be a few who don’t know what Samosa is. For me Samosa is an irresistible snack which I have been eating since my childhood. Samosa is a snack which is generally served along with Jalebi, biscuits and namkeen bhujia in many houses I visited. Though it has a shape of triangle, still you would want to eat the tip to get that crispness of a pastry and then enjoy the crunch with savory filling mostly made with potatoes and other spices. Another traditional recipe from the Parsi community is Akuri, a simple yet most comforting egg dish where eggs are scrambled and mixed with flavors of some spices, onion, ginger, and garlic. Eggs are cooked till they are slightly soft and runny unlike a bhurji. It is a creamy and tasty recipe served with pavs or bread toasts. Akuri Samosa is an amazing way of doing a north Indian in Parsi style. Small triangle pockets of well kneaded pastry filled with delightful Akuri filling, fried till its brown and crispy on the outside, served with green chutney, tomato ketchup or any hot sauce is a superb way of treating your friends and family well.
