Cooking Indian cuisine at home can be fun, flavorful, convenient, and less expensive than dining out!
The meal kit delivery industry is a revolution all on its own and today I’m sharing my latest obsession: Saffron Fix, a meal-kit service specializing in Indian cuisine and flavors.
Disclosure: This post features products from Saffron Fix received for editorial consideration. All thoughts are my own.
You might be wondering why a professional chef and food writer is writing about a meal kit? Well, I’m here to tell you all about my latest love, Saffron Fix! Unlike other meal kit delivery companies that are basically just the exact meals I am making at home, Saffron Fix focuses on traditional Indian recipes. And as a Dominican living in New England, I can honestly tell you that Indian cuisine is not my forte – although I love eating Indian food when I’m out in the city!
Cooking Indian cuisine at home takes time. Depending on the dish, it could be a lot of time!
Truthfully, not only the cooking of the food, but sourcing the specialty ingredients can sometimes be a hassle, especially if you live in a small town like I do. Saffron Fix solves that problem by sourcing everything for me, making sure it’s of the freshest quality. The spices I received in my box had an intense aroma, and the produce and meat were as fresh as I’d get at the market.
First up, the Vegetable Tawa Paulo, India’s take on stir fry rice. Starting off by sautéing the spices with onions and ginger, my house quickly filled up with smells of Indian food and I was in heaven! As the basmati rice steams, vegetables are sautéed quickly – just enough crunch left in them to add great texture to this dish. See? Cooking Indian cuisine at home is flavorful!
Next up, Methi Chicken Curry. Now, this curry! I’ve made plenty of curries at home and none of them compared to this recipe. Typically, I’ll whisk together pre-made curry paste and coconut milk in hopes of recreating a delicious meal. But this recipe from Saffron Fix combined spices, yogurt, and green chiles, cooked to perfection while soaking into juicy, boneless, chicken thighs. Heavenly, I tell you!
