When you’re done getting your fill of the Classic Aaloo Samosas here, make sure you go for some of their more interesting versions of the popular snack. Think Pasta Samosas {in Red Tangy and White Creamy avatars}, Egg Crumble Samosa and Chinese Manchurian Samosa. Looking for something sweet? The Choco-Caramel Samosa and Choco-Peanut butter Samosa might just be what you need. You can even pick a samosa to put together a Sam-Burger {that’s a samosa sandwiched between butter-tossed buns and slathered with your choice of sauces} or a Chaat {with curd, hot choley, chutney, cucumber and anar}.

Sudha Chats

A family-run business that has been around since the 1980s, Sudha Chats has quite a fan following {including us!} for its short menu of chaats. And, if it’s crumbly, potato-filled samosas that you’re craving for, this is just the place. The freshly made samosas here come crushed and paired with hot chole gravy, and generously topped with the sweet and spicy sauces.

Gangotree

Ask any chaat lover in the city for their favourite snack spots and we bet Gangotree would probably be in the top five recommendations. While the legendary joint {they’ve been around since 1986!} might be best known for their pani puri, the samosas here are just as tempting. Whether it’s the Channa Samosa, Dahi Samosa {hot samosas with cool curd and a dash of sauces? yes please!} or even the good old plain ones with their flavourful aloo filling, Gangotree gets it spot on.

Heading to Thom’s as part of your weekly grocery shopping? After you stock up on essentials and baked goodies, do drop by the snack section to pick up some of their divine but greasy samosas.

Banchharam

A go-to place for Bengali sweets, Banchharam also has a selection of savouries. And, the regulars here will vouch for their Singaras {aka samosas}. The version here is smaller than the regular samosa size and is fried in ghee. Be it for the slightly crisp outer layer or the flavourful filling within, this one’s a must-try if you are a fan of samosas.
