Ugandan Samosas Snack Food Recipe

Share
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Ugandan samosas are a nationwide popular and very common snack food. They are an African “fast food” that you can buy at kiosks on the side of almost any road. They are delicious, and quite inexpensive to make.

Ugandan Samosas can be made with or without meat. The most common meat used is beef. Vegetarian or not, they are always delightfully spiced and seasoned mixture of veggies, wrapped in a thin sheet of pastry, and then baked until golden brown and crispy.

To make perfect New England lobster rolls, you want to keep it simple. The succulent flavor of lobster meat is in itself what you want featured. Avoid the temptation to add much – if anything – to this simple, yet elegant recipe. Too many extra flavors can wind up overshadowing the unique and subtle flavor of the lobster salad filling. Even the use of sriracha hot sauce, if overdone, can ruin New England Lobster Rolls. You may even want to not use any hot sauce at all, but I find just a bit of it actually adds a “brightening-up” taste to the lobster. Experiment for yourself.

Note: If you are going to use fresh lobster meat, and will cook it yourself, you will need to buy four times the weight (in lobster tail form) of the amount you want to wind up with for your lobster salad. In other words, for this recipe, which calls for 1 pound of lobster meat, you would need four pounds of fresh lobster tails.

The below recipe does not take into account cooking time for the lobster, so for your convenience there is a chart below the recipe which shows how long to steam the tails.

Hutspot can be made and served with or without meat, but it most often does get served with either beef or pork. This Dutch Hutspot with Pork Chops recipe is a classic rendition of the traditional Dutch cuisine dish. Hutspot is basically a simple dish. Just boiled and mashed together potatoes, carrots and onions. Then you serve it, in this case, with some fried pork chops with gravy as a perfect compliment.

Nigerian shito sauce is a fiery condiment, popular in many central and western African countries. It is attributed to Nigeria as to where it originated and, while it is definitely prevalent there, perhaps more than other countries in Africa, shito sauce can be found at the dinner tables in Ghana, Kenya, and many other countries as a favored condiment to really spice up a meal.

Korean Pa Jun (egg pancakes) is an easy to prepare recipe. I have fond memories of these from my days as a Zen student living in a temple with a Korean Zen Master, and the daily fare was largely Korean. It makes a great snack, or an appetizer, or a side dish to an Asian meal.

Just see how yummy this looks!
Korean Pa Jun

Korean Pa Jun can be tweaked to your own tastes; almost anything goes as long as the basic eggs, flour and scallions are included. I like to spice them up with some hot peppers, and add some sweet bell peppers as well. You can also experiment with the ratio of eggs to flour you desire, achieving anywhere from a heavy, thick texture to light and fluffy.
