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.

  1. I just tried TastyBites Punjab Eggplant tonight, while staying in an Extended StayAmerica on a business trip. I was SO impressed, I logged on to look them up, and came across your blog. Gotta agree with you, TastyBites rock! Glad you mentioned bulk shipments – I’m off to place my first order!

  2. I am completely intrigued by this post. But I don’t quite understand– what IS it??? Is it, like, frozen? Or dried up, like ramen? I must try some.

  3. Neither frozen nor dried. It’s in a foil pouch — it comes in a “soft can” if such a thing exists. Maybe I’ll take a digital photo or two. Like most Indian food, it actually doesn’t look very pretty, but it tastes quite good.

    As a HUGE fan of Indian food, a really crappy cook, and someone who codes into the wee hours, this is the next best thing i can do to sponsoring someone from India to come and be my personal cook.

    A good sized box of TastyBite food arrived today (it’s heavier than I expected), inspired by Michael Radwin’s ode to TastyBite Indian Food a few weeks ago. I ordered at least one of just about everything they sell that does not contain any dairy produ…

  6. Oh my god.

    Sorry, but I rarther cook these things myself, its much tastier! (And doesn’t take much time, just some days ago I cooked a wonderful yellow curry in 30 Minutes).
