Eastern Condiments
Sept. 25, 2015, 5:48 p.m.

A box full of spice powders and ready to mix curry packs arrived from eastern condiments. The parcel reached me four days, after I was asked to review. It was a mix of sambhar powder, instant ready to make restaurant style curry packets, noodles etc. I should admit that this is a long pending review, since I was held up with the TV shoots. Fresh homemade powders are always preferred at homes. And by chance, if the family falls for a store bought one, we try recreating them at home. Make a batch, store and relish.  My mil is an expert in such areas :) So, here is what I have to say about eastern condiments. Let me show you the curry that I made and let you drool :P

Eastern CondimentsDo you believe the curry was ready in just 7 minutes :D Yes, I made it from their instant ready to make pack. It had the malai mutter masala in powder form. The ingredients said cashews, milk powder etc. No packs said MSG, so I believe they don add it. Now, to make the curry, totally 3 steps.

    1. Mix the powder in enough milk.


    1. Heat a kadai with little oil, whole garam masala and saute fresh peas.


    1. Add the milk and ready to cook powder mix. Boil for 5 minutes in medium flame until oil separates.

So simple, isnt it ? I really loved the taste of them. I tried dal makhani, butter chicken packs as well. I also used paneer with butter chicken ready to make pack and it was a big hit in the family. They give a totally restaurant taste unlike the ones in supermarket ( I've tried few brands ). 

Coming to their masala blends, I used their egg curry masala. I wasn't much impressed because the garam masala flavour was overpowering. The packaging is perfect. The packs have clear instructions that are easy to follow. I cannot comment on the delivery.

Overall, the ready to make curries are worth a try. I recommend them and give it a 9 out of 10.
