DEEP Paneer Chilli Samosa: Good But includes MSG

Like all Indians, I love Samosas.

Freshly made, frozen, vegetable or chicken, I won't say 'no" to any kind of Samosas.

In the U.S., I've had frozen Samosas from Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, from Indian grocery stores on Oak Tree Road and at countless restaurants.

Of all the frozen Samosas I have had so far, Paneer Chilli Samosa peddled by DEEP is easily the best vegetarian Samosa. On price, quantity and taste, I can't think of a better frozen Samosa in the U.S.

Still, I will not recommend it to every one. Because sometimes even good things of life come with a catch.

And the catch with DEEP Paneer Chilli Samosas is that they include Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) to which some people are allergic.

Here are the good things about Paneer Chilli Samosa:

Now coming to the not so good things:

Heating instructions were not up to the mark especially the 2 to 3 minutes time specified. I had to fry the Samosas (4) for six minutes to get the golden brown outer color.

And the bad thing about DEEP Paneer Chilli Samosa is inclusion of Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), a migraine trigger for many.

DEEP Paneer Chilli Samosa Rating

If you are looking for a quick snack while watching a Hindi, Tamil or a Telugu movie, DEEP Paneer Chilli Samosa is a nice companion.

The Samosas were crisp, the Paneer Chilli stuffing tasty and the $3.99 price for 12 pieces not bad.

But avoid DEEP Paneer Chilli Samosa if you are allergic to MSG. - ©
