As I travel a lot for work, I sometimes don’t have time to cook myself dinner and so rely on ready meals to see me through. Not the most healthy of habits, so I was delighted when I came across Street Monkey whilst browsing Sourced Market in St Pancras.
Street Monkey meals come as a set of three tiffin boxes, which include a curry, a side and a rice. Best of all, they are gluten, wheat, dairy free, are made with no artificial ingredients and use ethical meat.
I went for the Spicy Goan Coconut Beef curry set, which comes with a side of Chennai Aloo (chickpea and potato in a tomato sauce) and pea pilau rice.
You stick them all in the microwave for a few minutes and voila…your Indian feast is ready to eat.
This Street Monkey meal was one of the best ready meals I’ve ever had. The sauce was rich and spicy and the beef was better quality than in some restaurants I’ve been to. I’ll certainly be buying one of these again.
I’d heard great things about Motu Indian Kitchen from other food bloggers so when I was faced with another freezing night, I thought I’d give it a go.
Indian food tends to be pretty good for gluten free options but it’s rare to find the allergens shown on the menu. Motu does though and all of the mains and most of the sides are gluten free – hurrah!!
I went for the Madras Prawn Masala, plain rice, poppadoms and a side of Kachumber Raita.
It arrived really quickly (big thanks to the very cold Deliveroo cyclist) so was still piping hot. At first I was a little worried about the portion size as it looked a bit small but I was just being a pig, once I plated it up it was the ideal amount for one.
The curry itself was amazing! Rich, flavoursome with just the right amount of spice. The kachumber raita was lovely – fresh and cooling unlike the usual bright green crap you get at bog standard takeaways.
Honestly this was one of the best Indian meals I’ve ever had, from a takeaway or a restaurant!
