Samosas

Do you pick them up or use a fork and knife? Just curious. Picking them up seems better, but they just got out of the oven!

Pick up with hands. Definitely. Swap them from hand to hand and take tiny bites if they are on the hot side

I voted "other" because I eat samosas with my mouth, just like all other foods.

Oh, OK... I do whatever seems most efficient and/or polite at the time.

zatoichi, samosas are deep-fried dough pockets filled with yummy things like curried potatoes, peas, and carrots. You eat them with yummy sauces or just as they are. It's Indian food at its best! Here's a picture:

Those look good. Mine were baked and had potatoes, peas, banana pepper, onions, and some spices!

Mmmm...samosas...I was introduced to them by my best bud, who lived in a Krishna temple for a few years and cooks good Indian food...dagnabbit, now I want to call her and beg for the recipe! I say fork and knife, but I'm such a prissy princess that I even eat my veggie burgers that way most of the time.

when i've made samosas in the past, I've used chinese spring roll wrappers. Just dab some water on the edges and wrap!

It is my conviction that samosas must be eaten with your hands. The first time I had indian food was over at an indian friend's house, and i was so excited that they didn't even put silverware down at the dinner table that i called my mom after dinner and let her know i'd just eaten rice and liquidy main courses.. with my hands! I've since realized that indian food is phenomenal even with silverware.

p.s. I've never seen tofu in an indian dish either

Fork and knife. I haven't made any in ages though and the ones at the supermarket are really big ones that you just eat one of rather that several small ones.

I third Dandy and AttackFerret - never seen tofu in an indian dish to my knowledge - Zatoichi: you're not just assuming something white and cubelike is tofu are you? cos it could be paneer if you haven't explicitly asked

I've had tofu samosas. Not as good as the regular thing, IMO I've also been to indian restaurants where they will substitute tofu for paneer to make certain dishes vegan.

I've only had those twice (of the chick pea, green pea, potato, and curry variety). When I did, I picked them up with my hands.

I often open them with a fork or knife first just because i want to confirm what's inside (If I made them myself I wouldn't be concerned). But after that, they become a finger food
I think I'll need to get some Samosas soon.
