Eating samosas for a good cause

Chaska’s month-long fundraiser will benefit Trillium Health Partners

Chaska will be serving up samosas for a great cause for the next month at its three locations in the Greater Toronto Area.

From October 1 to 31, Chaska will donate proceeds from its popular samosas to Trillium Health Partners, which serves patients at its three main sites: Credit Valley Hospital, Mississauga Hospital and Queensway Health Centre.

Naveen Seth, CEO of Chaska, chose to hold this fundraiser to honour the memory of his mother, Sarla Seth, a passionate cook whose personal recipe for samosas lives on at the restaurant. While samosas are a staple on menus at Indian restaurants across Canada, they can often be somewhat bland and flavourless. Chaska has earned rave reviews for its trademark samosas because of Sarla’s authentic recipe and cooking technique.

Trillium Health Partners is important to the Seth family as Sarla received care at Credit Valley Hospital before she passed away on March 3, 2019. Seth spent a lot of time with his mother at the hospital. Even though his mother was going through various cancer treatments, she always made sure staff were well fed.

“Food and the idea of eating together meant a lot to my mom so she was always asking us to bring in meals and treats for the nurses and other staff members while she was in the hospital,” says Seth.

Chaska now has three locations, having opened a new restaurant at 3 Concorde Gate in North York on September 24. The new location, along with established restaurants in Mississauga and downtown Toronto, will participate in the fundraiser. Two further locations in Toronto will be open by the end of 2019.
