An ode to TastyBite Indian Food

TastyBite Kashmir Spinach A couple of weeks ago UPS dropped off a 30 lb. box of Indian food from TastyBite. Every box has been absolutely delicious.

My personal favorites are the Kashmir Spinach, Madras Lentils, and the recently discontinued Curried Mashed Potatoes. They’re about $3 a box in the local supermarkets, but you can get them for as low as $2.09 a box when you buy them by the 6-pack online. And they do free shipping on orders of $50 or more. Twenty-four meals for fifty bucks is a pretty good bargain.

Most importantly, all of TastyBite’s vegetarian Indian foods are 100% Kosher. We’re hoping that someday they’ll also get rabbinic supervision for their vegetarian Thai products, too.

I’m not a big fan of the Malabar Mixed Vegetables. We bought a dozen of those because they were on sale for $1.25 apiece, but we haven’t enjoyed those as much as the more mainstream dishes. They’re a little too rich and creamy for my taste.

It’s a shame that TastyBite is no longer selling their Curried Mashed Potatoes dish. Those were absolutely fantastic. Fortunately, there are no shortage of recipes for Pav Bhaji available on the Net.
