Samsa is another type of local fast food, sold almost everywhere in cafes in fast food chains or made at home. Indian samosas, triangle shaped dough stuffed with meat or vegetables, were introduced to India by Central Asian traders in the 13th and 14th centuries.  In Central Asia, they are always stuffed with meat and onions, and unlike samosas, baked in the oven and never fried. Occasionally, you’ll find samsa with a potato or pumpkin filling.
