At least once in our lives, we have all had the burger vs samosa debate. But guess what? Now we have the final verdict! According to a new Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) report released on November 27, a samosa is healthier than burger any day.
The answer has always been pretty evident and in our faces. Samosas are better because they are made with fresh ingredients and are free of additives, preservatives and artificial flavours.

Even though samosas are deep fried and would come across as super unhealthy, they are still better than burgers. Even the Rs. 5 nukkad-wala samosa, which is made with not-so-fresh oil.
And yet, the survey states that the ingredients of the samosa, like wheat flour, cumin, boiled potatoes, peas, salt, chilies, spices, vegetable oil or ghee are mostly chemical-free, and natural.
Suck It Up Burgers!
Here’s why burgers rate higher on the unhealthy scale: They have antioxidants along with refined wheat flour, sugar, gluten, vegetable oil, yeast, salt, soya flour, sesame seed, vegetables, mayonnaise, cheese and patty!
