Samosa war erupted in 2007

Patel's famous treats became so popular at the Boyce Farmers' Market that it led to the so-called 2007 samosa war.

Patel and a rival, Samosa Delite, were victims of their own success as many vendors complained about the seemingly endless queues for the spicy Indian delectable.

The samosa vendors were told to relocate to a trailer in the market's parking lot.

Patel's chose not to take their business outside and their samosas have not been available at the market since that decision.

Patel announced in January that she was looking to sell her catering business and with it may come her secret samosa recipe.
