This comes packed in a carton.

Aroma + Appearance 

Some rice grains were long, others were broken. The vegetables were not too vibrant, and this had a yellowish brown hue with a gloss, like that of oil. Post-heating, the rice had developed a khila khila, not-sticky appearance.

This meal had an inviting, warming aroma of ginger and garlic.

Taste + Texture

The veggies lacked freshness and did not have a pleasing bite. Tons of room for improvement here. The rice grains had softened well and had a well-cooked bite. 

As for flavors, it was pretty good. The seasoning was balanced, it wasn’t too salty or too spicy. Unlike most RTE meals, this did not have any industrial aftertaste. To enhance the freshness, we recommend pairing this with a bowl of curd.
