Australian Mates

The closest relative of the samosa that one finds in Australia is the pasty. The Australian pasty originates from the Cornish pasty and was introduced by the Cornish miners who immigrated in the 19th century. The pasty is popular in South Australia but relatively unknown in other parts of the country.

The arrival of immigrants from South Asia in the past few decades have made the original samosa from zjhe Indian subcontinent popular in both Australia and New Zealand.
