If you've traveled through Asia, Africa, or parts of the Mediterranean, chances are you've encountered a samosa. Samosas take many shapes, but are most commonly triangular, flaky-pastry snacks filled with a savory filling. Thought to have originated in Central Asia more than a thousand years ago, these days samosas are usually associated with Indian cuisine. And that's exactly what we had in mind with Trader Joe's Mini Chicken Tikka Samosas.
Our Mini Chicken Tikka Samosas are crisp, flaky pastry, in the traditional triangular shape, that are filled with chicken, vegetables and Indian curry spices – the filling does taste quite like Chicken Tikka Masala. They have a moderate amount of heat – our "chili pepper" chart on the box indicates a medium heat level – and are excellent for dipping in chutneys or yogurt-based sauces. Serve these Mini Samosas as an appetizer before an Indian-inspired dinner, or pass them, along with other international selections from our freezers, at your next cocktail party.
We're selling each 8.5 ounce box of Mini Chicken Tikka Samosas for $3.99, every day. You'll find them in our freezers.
