One of the most humble evening snacks, samosa, has always been our go-to tuck while we sip on our cup of kadak chai! Every nook and corner of North India has at least one kiosk selling this hot and delish delicacy, that is accompanied with a sweet and sour chutney.
If anyone ever offers this versatile nibble with chai or cold drinks, we’re sure you can’t help but take a bite or two because deep fried gluttony is a part of our big fat Indian diet, no matter how unhealthy. Even firangis have taken a strong interest in this snack and seeing the rise of the Samosa lovers around the country and outside of course, a few chefs have taken up the challenge to reinvent the simple samosa!
On similar lines, the chefs (we like to call ‘em culinary artists) here at Mister Chai have amped-up the basic potato filled samosa and they’ve introduced Butter Chicken Samosas, like no other!
The Butter Chicken Samosa has been a palate winner amidst the other options available here at Mister Chai! The creamy and spiced Butter Chicken filling and the crust ratio merges like tides and waves of flavours rush in, at the first bite. Crisp outside and tender inside, these samosas are served with chutneys in syringes, for the extra kick and the generous portions of chicken makes this worth your foodsplorations!
3 of these come for ₹699 and if you’re picking just 1, you gotta pay up ₹249 but will it be worth the cost, given that local variety comes for ₹5-₹10 a piece?
Hell to the yeah
because this is the fine-dine version of our favourite snack and the taste here is unparalleled, so is the ambience!
Mister Chai is coyly nestled on the way to the elevators, the bar and the rest rooms of the Eros Hotel so locating it is easy and this ‘in-between hours’ bistro, offers a diverse selection of hot beverages! The place oozes with the fusion of a regal lounge and a local tea shop vibe, aided with artistic food plating and presentation! Their craftily curated menu pays a beautiful homage to the ‘chai time’ in India and along with it, snacks have an equal stance in the options they proffer.
