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.
$3.99 for 12 mini samosas. 4 and a half stars from Sonia. 4 from me.
Backside line: 8.5 out of 10.
