      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great product especially for party snacks.

      These are found in the freezer section at Sainsburys and they are always on offer at 3 boxes for £5.00. They cost £2.00 to buy on their own.

      In this box you get 8 onion bahjis and 8 vegetable samosas. You simply cook in the oven for about 20 minutes and they are ready to serve.

      The Samosas
      I really like the samosas, they always come out crispy on the outside and soft in the middle, they can be a bit greasy but I think that's the nature of a samosa. The filling is made of vegetables such as peas and potatoes, and what tastes like a mild curry sauce. My husband has just informed me he thinks the peas are too hard in these, but I actually disagreed, but I like my veg with a bit of a bite anyway. You can definitely taste the cumin in these and I really like them. They are very filling though, I can only ever eat one or two at the most. They are not hot (as in spicy hot) at all. They are 65 calories each according to the box.

      The Bahjis.
      It's hard to describe the taste of an onion bahji, but here goes, these particular ones taste of onion (obviously) but they do have a bit of a kick to them and they are actually sweeter than a lot of bahjis I have had, and they are more flat and squished like a patti rather than stringy bits of onion. These are 53 calories each according to the box, so slightly less than the samosas.

      I think this is a good amount of food, for the price paid for the box, and both of the products seem well made and taste great. They are ideal to accompany an indian meal (not all of them if there are just 2 of you), and great for party snacks. Would recommend these.
