Aloo Chaat

Kati Pouches

Might as well throw a gif in there of potatoes because that’s kinda what it is:

While Trader Joe was exploring India one day, he got some of these from a street vendor and decided they were good enough to start making in his Canadian distribution facility. That’s probably not how it happened, but, they do come from Canada. It also sounds like TJ’s invented the term “Kati Pouch” since the internet only shows results from there when we tried to find it. This thing has some serious ingredients:

Half of a healthy version of Hot Pockets.

There’s not much to say here. This was the perfect level of warm after resting a bit once done in the microwave, the inside was evenly filled with ingredients and the spices were really tasty. Not bad at all Trader Joe, not bad at all. The best part about this was that there were no negative after affects either. This definitely comes out above average in the “two hours later test” that White Castle and traditional Hot Pockets can never quite hit “above average” with. The only thing I can even knock this thing on is that the crust wasn’t as crispy as it could be, but it was still pretty good.
