Back in my 20s, I used to buy Trader Joe’s frozen Indian meals, but I soon learned that they weren’t very healthy and they came with like half a piece of chicken. It turned me off from already-prepared Indian food for a long time — until I got the chance to try India In A Box. This new service delivers really easy-to-make dehydrated Indian food right to your door and you can prepare them on the stove or in a microwave — where it’ll literally take five minutes. The meals are vegan and gluten-free, but you can add meat if you wanna. I did — see below.
One night, I prepared the above Jeera Rice, Tikka Masala gravy (I added chicken), and Pav Bhaji for dinner – wow! Those were all really good and really easy. I put the packets in the sauce pans with water like the directions said, I walked away for a minute or two. When I returned, the contents were totally transformed. I think the only thing missing from this meal was naan (but India In A Box does offer that, too). I also liked that the Pav Bhaji had a nice spicy kick to it, too.
India In A Box is a food start-up that realized that most current packaged Indian food loses about 50 percent of its nutritional value, so their specialized dehydration process ensures that 95 percent of the food’s nutritional value is retained without adding any preservatives. Yum! And they get delivered to your door in cute boxes, so you can stress less about dinner and more about everything else going on in your life.
Stay tuned to a Q&A with CEO & founder Shyam Devnani to be posted soon!
