Samosa adds life to Indian street food. Samosa goes well with a cup of chai, laal hari chutney, and even chole. It’s so good that people bond over this golden, crusty puff packed with delicious fillings and blended in aromatic spices. But, what if we tell you that your favorite snack, samosa, is banned in a country. That’s right! Can you believe it! Samosa is banned in Somalia. Heartbreaking. Isn’t it?
According to many sources, the reason behind banning samosa is that the Al-Shabaab group in Somalia found samosa to be too western for their place. This group was of the opinion that the triangular shape of samosa resembles that of the Christain holy trinity. The shape of the samosa which is appealing for all of us sadly didn’t go well with the Al-Shabaab group. This ban means the people in Somalia can now not cook or eat samosa by any means.
