    • yeps…. in our country we get this almost everywhere from street vendors but there’s something great about preparing them at home! they’re not specifically Punjabi….but generally Indian and Pakistani….! Punjab is just a province of India/Pakistan…. 😉

      • Good morning Ayesha, I spent quite a bit of time in India but the huge street samosas were sold to me as Punjabi Samosa, they were the most delicious ever as I have eaten them in all sorts of forms and yours reminded me of the ones I loved best…. Perhaps the man who made them was from the Punjab ? … ? what do you think?

      • Yes…..I agree. He must be from Punjab! and quite a few street vendors are Punjabi as opposed to those from other ethnic backgrounds….!(just my observation,others might differ) 🙂 And street vendors do that all the time. For example I often have chaat from a ‘thela’ that says ‘Kashmiri aalo chaat’. Now Chaat is there in the whole country not just Kashmir….this can confuse people 🙂
