Best samosa in TCs?

A friend is a hosting a party with Indian food, and wants to serve samosas. Everything is else will be homemade, but she wants to buy samosas. I used to think the best ones were at Asia Imports on Central Avenue, but they have closed. Does anyone have another recommendation?

    I liked the ones at Kabobs in Bloomington...but I'm definitely not a samosa expert.

      Ditto on Kabobs. $1.25 each prepared, and delicious. Also, ditto on not being a samosa expert.

        Not sure what a "samosa expert" entails, but I will jump on the Kabob's bandwagon. I've had samosas in quite a number of places, as well as making them from scratch, and Kabob's ranks very high on my list.

      Not sure why she just wouldn't make the samosas from scratch, if everything else is homemade. But, according the city pages Hyderabad House had the best samosas:

      But I have no clue, as I've never even heard of the HH. Maybe others can shed some light on this. But, why not check out the gandhi mahal--they have great food and chowhounds love it.

        HH closed about 2 years ago.

          Alpa Chino: speaking from someone who has made them, it's a very long and involved process. If you're making other dishes as well, especially for a large group, it's going to be extremely time consuming.

          Kabobs also has a catering menu. Their samosas are awesome!

            We just had some really good Samosas from Great India in Brooklyn Park. They really look home made, with their generous filling of large chunks of vegetables and chickpeas.

            Their menu mentions that they cater, so they might be an option.
