MONCTON – Before he moved to Canada, Raman Sobti was the banquet chef at the world’s tallest hotel, the JW Marriot Marquis Hotel in Dubai. He also ran a restaurant with his wife Shikha there. Now, through their company Sai Krishna Food Services, they supply authentic, hand-made samosas to hotels, restaurants, the casino, and soon, an Indian street food cafe called Chai Samosa in Dieppe.
“We migrated to Canada in November 2017, and when we visited the local markets, we saw that authentic handmade samosas were missing,” Shikha says. “We started back in May 2018 with 200 samosas. This summer, we sold 50,000 samosas.”
They started by selling their samosas to friends, but the word spread all the way to P.E.I. Now the couple, with the help of six full-time and part-time staff, makes between 500 and 600 vegetable, chicken, and beef samosas each day.
“This is a quick appetizer that’s fully made…when you need to eat it, you just need to put it in the oven for 25-30 minutes at 325 degrees, and it’s completely ready. You don’t need too much labor and it’s not time-consuming. And the vegetable samosas are vegan as well, so it’s a good vegan option,” Shikha says.
Sai Krishna also offers catering services, though as the demand for samosas grows and with the opening of the cafe, the company is now focusing on Its wholesale product.
