Venky’s Chicken Samosa
While Venky’s Chicken Samosa tasted good too but fell short on two counts. First, the filling is quite pasty, and as a result, you cannot really taste the chicken. Secondly, there is too much black pepper in it. This not only makes the samosas a bit too spicy, but it also tends to overpower the flavor of the chicken. This may be a drawback for true-blue chicken flavors.
Having said that, there are some good things about Venky’s too. The exterior is crispy, layers are nice and flaky.
