A delicious Burmese Street food that is very easy to make at home. Flaky samosa dunked in a spicy lentil gravy and served with shredded cabbage.
My country of choice for the day starting with the letter M is Myanmar aka Burma. Since Burma shares it’s boundaries with China, India and Thailand, it’s cuisine is heavily influenced by all these countries. There are quite a few Burmese dishes that I have bookmarked to try, but in the end I made this simple and delicious Burmese Samosa thouk.I saw this dish for the first time on Vaishali’s blog and bookmarked it right away. Burmese Samosa thouk is a popular street food in Burma/ Myanmar. I made it once before when I had some leftover samosa and it was fabulous. I made it again yesterday, so I can share it with you guys on the blog as well.The soup part of this Burmese Samosa thouk is nothing but our everyday simple dal. After tasting the dish, I thought this is Burmese version of South Indian Sambar Vada except in this dish samosa is dunked in spicy dal instead of vada. I loved the crunchy cabbage topping and the lemon juice perks everything up.I used Vaishali’s recipe and this recipe from Epicurious. The latter recipe also uses falafel along with samosa, so I went ahead and added a few warm falafel as well into my soup. All in all this is a filling meal for any time of the day.
