Hindu samosas seduce Yangonites of all stripes.
On a busy street in downtown Yangon, a Hindu man perched on a stool is frying samosas and all sorts of Hindu delicacies. Hungry passers-by stop for a bite. They are Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, workers, students, tourists and businessmen.
No religious diet prevents anyone from eating the tasty triangles. The key to success: no pork, no meat, only healthy vegetables.
“We devout Hindus abstain from eating meat. We mainly eat peas, beans and flatbread like chapati” said U Aung Kyaw as he hands samosas to his client.
His menu is indeed a vegetarian’s paradise : samosa filled with spiced potato, onions and masala, fried potato, gourd, ladyfinger and his signature dishes : bayarkyaw, corn springrolls, pea fritters mixed with ginger, onion.
