Our Review Factors
The prime focus of our Chaayos Mini Samosa review were the freshness, flavor of the filling, the ratio of the crust to filling, ingredients, and the economic value in regards to the overall quality.
Samosa, a fried snack, is prepared with a considerable amount of oil. When fat turns stale, it imparts an undesirable, bitter and rancid taste. What was the case here?
The filling- does it feature a balanced seasoning? Are the flavors subtle or intense?
Did the outer cover retain its crisp bite? Was it flaky? Did the casing feel too doughy or was it too hard to bite?
What about the filling- did it have a mashed potato-like texture or was there a variety?
What are the main ingredients used to prepare this snack? Are the quantities specified? Do these contain enormous amounts of salt/sugar? What about the source of fat? Additives, flavors, preservatives, what all does this snack from Chaayos contain?

Chaayos Mini Samosa – Detailed Review
Price & Packaging
A 150-gram pack of Chaayos Mini Samosa holds nine pieces. It is priced at Rs 139/- and has a shelf life of four months. The packaging is fairly convenient. It is resealable which helps preserve freshness.
Refined wheat flour, refined oil, chickpea flour, moong dal, vanaspati ghee, coconut, sugar, cashews, raisins, red pepper powder, edible salt, fennel, dry mango powder, mixed spices, fenugreek leaves, asafoetida, black salt.
We liked that this does not use any artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. However, this uses two sources of fat- refined oil and vanaspati ghee. Both of these are not too ideal.
Taste & Texture
The outer cover was quite crisp. It was slightly on the thicker side, but pleasing nonetheless. The salt and overall seasoning of this crust was on point and not bland. It did not feel greasy on the palate or fingers. In addition to this, there was no rancid taste or smell of the fat sources.
The crust-to-filling ratio was fairly decent. Just like the crust, the filling was also well-seasoned. Savory, sweet, tangy- all flavors were in sync. Moreover, there was a commendable textural interplay in the filling. We bit into chewy plumpy raisins, crunchy cashews, fine sev that added a subtle crispness, and crunchy moong dal. We think the chickpea flour used had a pleasing flavor that indicated it had been roasted quite well. This also had aniseed (saunf) that added a floral sweetness. It was delectable and brought the entire filling together. There is no prominent taste or aroma of asafoetida.
