Excellent dish, worth much more than the price.
Really great and flexible!
Hate Eggplant But Love Punjab! And the box!! lol
My husband first picked this stuff up from our local Grocery Outlet and we’ve been hooked on it ever since! I’m generally not a big fan of eggplant, personally, I don’t much care for its texture when cooked (raised eating it cooked Afghan style which most would say is especially good)… But something about this stuff. It’s just wonderful!
Kashmir Spinach: A bit soupy, but still very good
This review is for the Kashmir Spinach variety – it seems that Amazon lumps the reviews for all the different Tasty Bite varieties together (this probably explains why they all have the same star rating). I have no idea why Amazon does that – It’s not much help in determining which varieties are most popular.
Tasty Bite Indian Entree, Vegetable Tikka…
Very good.. a bit mild, but very nice to have on hand to just ZAP in the microwave and get a good Indian dinner…served atop this brand’s rice, it is really very nice. Not too salty either, so it mixes very well with their Jasmine Rice. It is a bit too much liquid and NOT enough veggies, but it tastes good when mixed with rice and whatever real Indian spices YOU have on hand, such as a teaspoon of turmeric, and some keora water, just a bit, for some true Indian flavor. I WISH they would add a bit less salt and more turmeric or some other REAL Indian spices and not fear Western tastes…After all, people who enjoy Indian food DO expect REAL Indian, and not American, spices, especially too much salt! .They lowered the price to a reasonable amount to pay, so I ordered it again. When the price goes up, it is NOT worth it. Since the price was lowered, I ordered it again. It doesn’t stand alone, and MUST be used with rice and some extra seasonings, like tumeric, so a reasonable price is a MUST for me.
TASTY Jodhpur Lentils — TRY THIS ONE
Tasty Bite Indian Jodhpur lentils is a great entree. it is very easy to just heat and eat. Can throw over a salad, quinoa, rice or noodles. Very full flavor and satisfying to satiate. VEGAN. Does not need to be stored in refrigerator. Great as a dip with tortilla chips — heat and dip. Also good as a side dish. I did add some pink Himalayan sea salt as it was not salty enough for the taste buds. VERY mild, so if you like spicy hot just add a dash of some hot sauce. Healthy. NO GMOs. No fake or artificial stuff in these. Impressed with this product.
Easy shelf-stable mom & daughter meals!
We love all the ones we’ve tried so far! They have rich flavor without being hot-spicy (you can always add heat), and we love eating them with brown rice (often with red quinoa and barley added), plain greek yogurt, and chutney. The Kashmir spinach has a much fresher flavor than other canned or boxed ones I’ve tried. I like the eggplant one, too, but DD says it’s a strange combination of smooth & lumpy. However, she likes all the dals we’ve tried, and they have some texture, so go figure. Her current favorite is the Madras Lentils, with a creamy tomato flavor. The yellow Johdpur Lentils has a smoother texture and delicate, almost but not quite bland flavor. The Bengal lentils are more nubbly and spicier, but still not seriously hot. The chickpeas (Chana masala) of course have the biggest pieces and tasty if you like chickpeas (DD likes them more than I do), probably the only one I won’t order again, but that’s totally a bias based on the chickpeas. It’s the best chickpea dish I’ve had, actually. LOL
Quick meals, but also tasty recipe enhancement
I tried the lentils and liked them, but had to actually spice them up some with extra heat, to bring them from rather bland, to great. It was a small adjustment for a well received, quick meal.
Well, I recently discovered Tasty Bites and have tried several of them now. The flavor and heat would make Punjab Eggplant one of my favorites except for one problem (for me). It’s just mush. For many people that’s not an issue, in which case I urge you to try it then. For me food needs more texture than this. Even over rice, this dish is just so much stewed veggies, cooked down to vegetable mush. If it weren’t for the spiciness, the texture would be more suitable for an infant IMO.
Tangy means fresh.
I started with the potatoes, so bland without the familiar spices. Perfect for fragrant rice, I ate it straight from the bag. The meal was warmed through and I look forward to using the rest and a protein for variety. World trade at its best. A product of India, that’s available for me without takeout. May your meals have such zestiness.
MUCH better than I expected…
I bought these Tasty Bite Jodhpur Lentils to keep at the office, along with some pouches of chicken, so that I could have something reasonably healthy on those days when I don’t have time for a real lunch break. To my surprise I love them! Seriously. Instead of being my “Meh, at least it’s not out of the vending machine” kind of lunch, I actually look forward to these. The ingredients are very simple. Adding chicken, or tuna, ups the protein even more (from 12g for the pouch to >20g), and these are ridiculously low in fat (<5g per pouch). The spices are very mildly curry-ish, not so much that you (or your office) will reek of curry, but pleasantly so. This is my third order, and I've added them to Subscribe & Save because I really do like them...and as a bonus, there's no need for a bowl or plate. The pouch even manages to keep my microwave clean because the sides are high enough to contain any potential spatter matter. Yuup, I'm happy with these.
