In United Kingdom six cities are going to take part in the first-ever ‘National Samosa Week’ next month where participants will be seen making, selling and eating this Popular Indian snack to raise money for charity. The proceeds from the sale in Leicester are aimed at two charities — mental health charity LAMP and Care of Police Survivors (COPS) — dedicated to helping the families of police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
The event is scheduled from April 9 to 13. This idea is actually the brainchild of a Leicester-based media personality who believes that the popularity of the triangular-shaped savoury snack (Samosa) transcends all barriers and can become a mean to unite different communities in the UK. Birmingham, Manchester, Coventry, Nottinghamshire and Radlett have come on board with the idea, which involves a range of activities including samosa-eating contests, pop-up samosa shops and tastiest samosa awards. This is really gonna be very exciting.
