Spicy Triangular Snack

Among the street foods of Iran, one can find interesting things like falafel and sambosa, the latter being the triangular snack filled with spicy mashed potato. Sambosa, also spelled samosa, is an inexpensive food, available in every crowded downtown in Iran. It is usually a cheap food for strong stomachs; but it is different in southern regions.
Unlike in Tehran and other northern cities of Iran, sambosa holds a special place among southerners. Travelers who are visiting Shiraz, Abadan, Bushehr, and other southern cities, are recommended to have a taste of the spicy stuff.

  A Little History
Prior to the 10th century, sambosa originated in the Middle East. Iranian historian Abolfazl Beyhaqi (995-1077) mentioned sambosa in his history, Tarikh-e Beyhaqi. It was introduced to the Indian subcontinent in the 13th or 14th century by traders and cooks from the Middle East.
