The Samosa Factory

The Samosa Factory is a relatively new store that has opened in Anna Nagar. Its a little - and I mean tiny - desk! on the sidewalk.


You order something and they have it pre-packaged in little bags. If they're out, the lady at the desk, runs upstairs (where the kitchen is) and brings some down - hot, fresh fabulous mini samosas. You could alternatively eat there, and they have a microwave to heat it up for you!


They have 4 kinds - Indian, Chinese, Potato and Jain. I really like the Chinese - its unique (carrot, beans, potatoes, cabbage sauteed in a chilli-soy sauce. The Indian and Potato ones are almost identical (the lady wasn't too sure either what the difference was). And the Jain...well, its a Jain samosa (no root vegetables - onion, garlic, potato...).


You get a package of 12 mini samosas for Rs. 20. I thought that was extremely reasonable. And it was delicious. Perfect to pick-up as appetizers for a last-minute party!

Address and phone numbers on their website.

It looks so crispy. You have a very good blog here Arundathi. Madras nalla madras dhaan. Hmm!!! Big sigh! I really really wish If God could change my husband's mind so that we can move back there.

Another question, not relevant to this post though.

I'm going to host October's AFAM. So I want to pick a fruit which is available in India also. Are plums, cherries, cantaloupe available there year round. Or could you tell me what will be available there in that season there?

Hi Arundhati, thanks for your comment and I wish I could visit this place in Chennai. I love samosas, and having so many varieties under one roof is really hard to resist. They are no doubt, perfect appetizers for any gathering.

Arundathi said...

PO - :) they were quite delicious!

Nandita - I'm sure they'll enjoy it!

Madhu - Thanks! I hope he changes his mind soon! It would be easier for me to give you the AFAM fruits closer to the date - have no idea what would be available at that time...

Kiran - Hope you enjoy Benjarong...

Indranee - :) next time you're in Chennai...
