Dealer Joe’s Mini Spicy Pumpkin Samosas

Trader Joe's Mini Spicy Pumpkin Samosas

It is an necessary distinction to make: these are spicy pumpkin samosas, not pumpkin spice samosas. Pumpkin spice samosas can be bizarre and perhaps even a bit of gross. Hopefully even you pumpkin haters can put aside your disdain for the autumn gourd and think about giving these a attempt…that’s, when you like Indian meals.

As a result of the spice mix right here is not ginger, cinnamon, allspice, and clove. It is cilantro, garlic, ginger, and turmeric. Sure, I am conscious ginger is on each lists, however the order wherein it falls inside the record is important. It is a background taste right here, not the principle attraction. These samosas are a bit of candy, too, however they don’t seem to be “pumpkin pie” candy, if you understand what I imply.

Along with actual pumpkin, Dealer Joe’s Mini Spicy Pumpkin Samosas have paneer cheese and candy potato inside them, too. To inform you the reality, I wasn’t certain if that combo was going to work, but it surely undoubtedly did. Each Sonia and I had been followers from our first bites.

We have at all times liked Indian meals. After Mexican, Indian might be our favourite kind of worldwide delicacies. There is a candy, spicy, savory curry essence to those appetizers that works oh-so-well and is oh-so-unique. It is a harvesty kinda taste, but it surely’s additionally unmistakably East Indian-inspired. The warmth degree is delicate to medium—sufficient to reinforce the flavour however not sufficient to trigger any discomfort to somebody who enjoys spicy meals.

Like different Dealer Joe’s samosas we have tried, the breading right here is crispy, flaky, buttery, and delectable. It may be a bit of on the oily facet, but it surely provides to the richness of the flavour. The one grievance I can consider is that I would not have minded some type of chutney in a bit of packet on the facet for dipping. I do know, I do know, I at all times make that very same grievance, however a little bit of chutney as unusual as these little apps may need made them much more scrumptious.

$3.99 for 12 mini samosas. 4 and a half stars from Sonia. 4 from me.
