Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) has released a report which proves that a samosa is any day better for health than a burger.

A samosa is made using refined wheat flour, boiled potatoes, cumin, spices, salt, chillies, vegetable oil or ghee, the report suggests, that even if it might be high on calories, it is cooked largely with chemical-free ingredients. On the other side, a burger contains preservatives, acidity regulator, improver, antioxidant and emulsifier.

A burger is made using refined wheat flour, wheat gluten, sugar, salt, yeast, sesame seed, mayonnaise, vegetables / potato / chicken / mutton patty and edible vegetable oil.

So, here is the verdict: Samosa just became great again.
