Ever heard of a sweet samosa? No, then this piece of writing promises to make you fall in love with the dessert samosa range by none other than Awesamosas available in Lahore. They have been innovating samosa in the savory and sweet menu along with their unique pakoras range near Cavalry Ground. They have recently revamped and have got a pretty decent place on the left corner of the all-new CSD supermarket.
Before going into the details of their super cool menu, let’s have a virtual visit to this modern Dhaba. The main front wall actually comprises of three shop shutters painted in a street style way with messages written like “Dard us se pocho jisko thandi chai mile (Real pain is when someone is served with a cold tea)”. I am rather a regular customer of Awesamosas firstly because of my sweet tooth and secondly, they are the only ones in town serving sweet samosas. This time, they have overhauled their menu and have come up with some interesting add-ons like Pani Puri (currently experimenting) and South Indian Coffee.
We ordered three different things from the menu. First one was the Hyderabadi savory samosa chaat that is served either in Lahori style or Karachi style. Well, the difference between both of them is pretty interesting. When we inquired, he said Karachi chaat has got hot chana chaat while Lahori styled samosas are served with cold dahi chana chaat. I am a Lahori but I can go with both depending upon my mood so I ordered Karachi styled chaat (above all, I am a Pakistani so what difference does that make?). The other chaat that got our attention was the Doritos chaat and we just couldn’t resist ordering because of our one true love for Nachos and Doritos. And last but not the least, the specialty which attracts me is ultimate chocolate s’mores samosa and apple pie samosa topped with caramel syrup served with ice cream on top.
I can never forget the statement by my Chacho before visiting Awesamosas for the first time that I love samosa and ice cream both separately and I just don’t want to ruin my love for them after having such a (weird) combo. But he absolutely loved the combination since it has elevated the samosas to another level of desi desserts.
Here comes the grand finale of serving. I must say the showstopper was Doritos Chaat which is served in the Doritos pack along with fresh tomatoes, special mint chutney, and other spices. They have just nailed it with this Desi version of Nachos.
Well, the Hyderabadi samosa chaat was served in hot chana chaat base layer for crispy traditional potato samosas topped with BBQ sauce. I can visualize you guys drooling over such a scrumptious description. The entire order was completed after the samosa dessert that is simply unbeatable in taste and innovation.
