“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Frozen Food „
When it comes to eating snacky type foods they are something that me and my bestmate/flatmate, really do enjoy of an evening quite often. We both like to pick at food so one evening in Tesco I spotted this Indian snack selection reduced from its usual price of £3.00 to £1.55, grabbed us a jar of mango chutney to go with them and we couldn't wait to get stuck in!
The snacks come in a black plastic tray with a clear plastic cover and then a sleeve that simply slides on and off with a photogragh of the snacks on the front of it and then on the side there is another photograph explaining what the snacks are. On the front of the sleeve we are told that they are Tesco '18' Indian Selection '6 mini onion bhajis, 6 mini vegetable samosas and 6 mini spinach pakoras' and we are also told that these are freezable and contain no added artificial preservatives, flavours, colours or hydrogenated fat, that they cook through in 14 minutes, are mild in spice and there is an at a glance nutritional chart displayed. On the back of the sleeve other information listed includes ingredients, allergy advice, a full nutritional chart and cooking instuctions, the weight of the products is shown (which is 396g) and contact details for Tesco are also listed. Nice enough informative packaging this is.
All you do to cook some or all of the snacks is remove all of the packaging and pop them in the oven for 12-14 from chilled or 18-20 minutes from frozen.
The Onion Bhajis:
These are bite size, rough on the outside and a golden sort of colour and then yellow when you bite through them. Although the outside is slightly tough the inside is moist and made from garam flour, onion, chick peas and yellow chick peas and they are not too spicy in flavour and have a slight taste of cumin and chilli to them. They didn't fall apart through cooking and tasted really of well seasoned and cooked slithered onion.
Small beigy triangles that are are well sealed at the ages and through cooking go golden on the outside and rather crispy crispy. You get like a pasty to the outide which is soft to the middle and within that a moist filling of peas, carrots and onions blended with a few other bits and pieces of course. Once again these contain garlic and chilli and are really moist and highly flavoursome.
Round and quite chunky for minis these look much like the onion bhajis however with more prominent green bits in them which is the spinach and there is plenty of that within them. Juicy, these have a taste of cauliflower to them as well as onion and of course the spinach and once again they have a slight chilli flavour to them and are very well seasoned and moist indeed with a harder outer edge.
All in all both me and my mate loved these, dipped in mango chutney they were simply lush and I would buy them again for sure (even at full price lol). 6 of each snack is generous and they are of good size too! Great stuff and not too spicy!
