Workers make all the products by hand
A small Leicester company has begun selling Indian snacks back to India.
Farsan Ltd has exported samosas, onion bhajis and other delicacies to the continent where the dishes originated.
Husband and wife team Nainesh and Nina Patel set up their factory on Ash Street eight years ago, after friends praised Mrs Patel's cooking.
Her husband said they were also in talks with USA and Chinese companies, but also planned to start production in India itself.
Mrs Patel said: "When friends have come over they've tried the product and they've said 'When you come over bring some samosas'.
"And from that one of the importers I met from South India tried some and said 'Let me take some' and since then he's been selling at a local market.
"The multiples in India have shown an interest and we are putting up a plant there."
