The Indians can never get over their mania for samosas. But what about samosas with serial numbers stamped on them? Twitter user Nitin Misra (@nitinmisra) made this samosa-related discovery recently. He shared a photo of the unique sealed samosas on the microblog platform, with an ironic caption: “The samosas I ordered had serial numbers. Halwai? “The tweet went viral, getting 12,500 likes and over 1,000 retweets in less than two days.
Twitter users were delighted with the photo of the samosas that had a cryptic code about them. User Alok Kumar (@_Alok108) wrote: “What’s next? Where’s the QR?”
Another user, GirlGoingThroughLife (@AnteeQaa), took a few steps forward and considered radio frequency identification. She wrote: “What’s next, RFID?” We hope not.
User Neha Gupta (@nehagupta1982) seemed to agree with Misra about technology dominating the human world. She wrote: “It looks like robotic chefs have taken control of our Halwaisss. “
But who thought a samosa post would receive comments based on non-fungible tokens or NFTs? Anurag Saxena (@anuragsaxena005) wrote: “Dude, this confirms that the NFT has entered the desi food chain.”
These funny comments aside, user Diwakar (@Pentropy) clarified the mystery behind these coded samosas. He responded to Misra’s tweet, “The label suggests the type of samosa. They’re fantastic.”
Samosa Party. The stamp suggests the type of samosa. They are amazing 🙂

In fact, coded samosas are a specialty of the Samosa Party snack-based startup. This company serves a variety of crispy samosas in Bengaluru and Gurugram. They stamp the samosas with different codes in order to distinguish between the varieties.
However, some people seem to have missed that point and piled orders in Misra’s inbox. As a result, he had to tweet one more time, “Please stop sending me DMs and ordering for Samosas. Place your orders at Samosa Party.” It made us freak out.
