Guess the favorite food of any Indian street food lover and samosa is sure to be at the top of their list. Crispy on the outside and flaky and stuffed with a hearty potato on the inside, it’s safe to assume that these snacks are one of the best on the streets of India! While the classic samosa enjoys a hardcore fan following, it is this huge fan base that makes the samosa one of the most experimental dishes out there. From pasta samosas to chocolate samosas, we’ve seen that we’ve been tested enough on humble foods to last us a lifetime. The latest on the list is called ‘Japanese Samosa’.

For those who are wondering, samosas are not made in Japan or use any Japanese ingredients. In fact, it is the creation of street vendors from the alley of Chandni Chowk in Old Delhi. The samosas are made in the form of extra crispy and puff pastry. The food was bought by Limelight food blogger Mohit Soni on his Instagram page chooseyourbite_.
