Mrs Jaffar cooks her samosas at the back of her stall behind the stone cottages at the Kirstenbosch Craft Market. Her daughter Taybah works front of house, doing the selling. But she also makes them to order and delivers from her Wynberg home, if you need these delicious triangles for a party or lunch or...rugby match?
There is a choice of fillings: gently spicy curried beef, finely chopped chicken, cheese, or mixed vegetables. At the market the other day we bought half a dozen of each as well as some flaky little beef pies. The samosas were still hot (my mom and I could not wait till we got home), because this shy lady cooks them on site, right there. The fillings are moist and light, the pastry crisp. Delicious. I recommend them highly.
