Look ma, yummy samosas!

Buying samosas at 10,000 bucks?
Now by any con standard that sucks!
But when search for exotic
Turns tourists quixotic -
To swindlers they are sitting ducks!

NEW DELHI (Reuters) 17/11/08 – A Dutch couple on a visit to the famous cattle fair in Sonepur, Bihar, paid 10,000 rupees ($204) for four samosas, a spicy deep-fried snack that usually doesn't cost more than a few rupees, a newspaper reported on Monday. Get the story here

Aphrodisiac samosas? Have to give it to the vendor, he sure was witty! And those of you out there who expect exotica at every blink of an eye when in India, whatever you do, don't expect samosas to give you great the most, if they are too spicy for you ,they may give you an upset tummy!


And for those of you who want to make them at home, so that you don't have to shell out that kind of money, you can check out this video:
