Deep Indian Kitchen Potato & Pea Samosas Review

Deep Indian Kitchen Potato & Pea Samosas

When we spotted the Deep Indian Kitchen Potato & Peas Samosas in our freezer aisle, we couldn’t shake the sense that there was something familiar about them. After a little bit of research, we realized why: Deep Indian Kitchen is the rebranded version of the Tandoor Chef line, which we’ve enjoyed many times. Since the brand was reportedly retooled to appeal to millennials, we decided to have both our millennial and non-millennial staffers check it out.

In order to properly prepare these samosas, you’ll need both a microwave and a standard oven. The cooking process is a little unusual, but it isn’t all that complicated. To start, you’ll need to defrost the samosas in the microwave. From there, you’ll need to bake them for around 15 minutes. These samosas also come with two packets of chutney, which need to be microwaved before serving.

The chutney is a little bit thin, and if you don’t find some sort of container for it, it’ll probably wind up all over your plate. Thankfully, heating it up in the microwave isn’t a problem at all. Our chutney was the perfect temperature by the time we dug in.

It looks like Deep Indian Kitchen made a few changes to the original Tandoor Chef samosa recipe. The basic ingredients are the same, but the samosas are now slightly higher in calories. Originally, each samosa contained 170 calories, but now, there are 190 calories per samosa. Luckily, since these samosas are incredibly hearty, the extra calories aren’t an issue. In fact, we’d say that two samosas are enough for a meal.

We thought these samosas were absolutely delicious the last time we tried them, and that still holds true. The filling is fairly simple; it’s really just potatoes, peas, chili peppers, and spices, but it’s absolutely wonderful, especially when the samosas are browned.

What really makes this frozen meal shine, however, is the chutney. The mint flavor isn’t that strong, but the taste is absolutely phenomenal. We wanted to eat every last drop. It’s slightly spicy, but not overwhelmingly so, especially if you’re used to eating Indian food.

The Deep Indian Kitchen Potato & Pea Samosas are as fantastic as ever, even if you’re not a millennial. If you were a fan of the Tandoor Chef line, we strongly recommend checking out the new version: Deep Indian Kitchen. If you’ve never heard of either brand, but you love frozen Indian food, then you’ll also want to search for these samosas in your freezer aisle.

Deep’s POTATO-PEA SAMOSAs are FANTASTIC. Authentic Indian samosas. Superbly flavored and textured. 1 or 2 per person aren’t enough. 1 pkg = 1- 2 servings. And the Cilantro{=fresh coriander leaves} + Mint + Tamarind chutney pkgs is a fab dipping addition, though the samosas are SO flavorful, they don’t need the chutney. TRY this asap – can be your new fave – healthy, delicious, and quick.
I thawed them in the refrigerator, then cooked them in a frying pan with only 2 Tablespoons oil to crisp the dough.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
