Excellent dish, worth much more than the price.

Really great and flexible! I first came upon this Eastern cooking some time ago in SE Asia while in the military. If this had been available in MRE’s, it would have been truly wonderful. It is excellent when eaten alone but is amazing with basmati rice or (the way I prefer) with properly prepared sushi rice. I recommend this very strongly. A Texas friend compared the taste and seasoning to his favorite Texas chili (even though his does not contain potatoes). Maybe it should. Try it! You will not be disapointed.
over a packet of ramen (especially if you throw an egg or two in there) is one of the most awesome, cheap meals I can make

Half a packet of this, over a packet of ramen (especially if you throw an egg or two in there) is one of the most awesome, cheap meals I can make. If you put eggs and milk/fake-milk in the bag, and cook them, it makes an incredible quiche. This is one of my favorite microwave meals to buy; $3 makes about 2 meals, if used with ramen and eggs. The curry is a refreshing kind and very flavorful, just spicy enough to give a kick, without being even a medium level of spiciness. The Spinach Dal by the same brand, is what I use when I want something of a little more moderate spiciness, but not really, really hot. But the Aloo Palak is mild enough that I can eat it when my stomach’s feeling a little off. I just really love this stuff. It really helps me to eat well, even as I live on a tight budget.
Kashmir Spinach: A bit soupy, but still very good
51 people found this helpful
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. Anyway, the Kashmir Spinach is very good. The spinach tastes fresh and is not at all rancid; the seasoning is on point (though I prefer it a little hotter), and the cheese cubes taste good. It is a bit too soupy, however, and while it does have a nice flavor, the soupyness does keep it from getting five stars. I like the Tasty Bite dishes because they are made from quality ingredients with no preservatives added. As with most prepared foods, the sodium content is a bit on the high side, but not outrageously so.

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! You’ve really got to try it. I’ll also say, I don’t care for a lot of Currie or Indian food either. The flavor and smell of this isn’t too heavy. It’s excellent with rice or any kind of flatbread. We especially like it with Wasa, we also have on Subscribe and Save here. It compliments this very well! http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0036RCYYY/ref=sr_ph?ie=UTF8&qid=1425198918&sr=1&keywords=wasa This makes for a super easy lunch or snack on the go when time is lacking to prepare anything. One of these bags cooks in under 2 minutes in the microwave (although we don’t cook in bag as suggested, we use a bowl)… A couple crackers and you’ve got a filling, healthy, yummy little meal! Doesn’t need any added seasoning, it’s just right as is, we think. Lastly, my favorite part (see photo lol), is the way it’s packaged out. Haha… The little things! The box is just pantry perfect!
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
Decent food for the price and ease

These are so tasty, fast, and easy. Are they as good as an Indian restaurant? No, of course not. But can you microwave them in 1 minute and they stlll taste pretty good? Yes! That’s the point! Over a one-serving minute rice container, they make a great meal for a sad, single person.
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. I had to try the Punjab Eggplant. I love eggplant and couldn’t wait. This meal is much spicier and did not require extra heat. It was just right for me, as it is. However, I was expecting a more predominant flavor of eggplant, since it is the number one ingredient, but the tomato flavor dominated. It also has more of a soup consistency, or thick tomato sauce, than expected. I have to say, that when spread over a fresh serving of Jasmine rice, it was delicious. I have also used a package as my pasta sauce, which was applauded for its unique flavor, topped with a little fresh basil from the garden. I can see the Tasty Bite meals serving many, as a very quick meal, which was the intended purpose. But, in my experience, the best of the products comes from utilizing them in other recipes. Eggplant spaghetti, topped with fresh herbs — yep, it takes more time, but it is worth is.
