Haldiram’s Minute Khana – Rajma Chawal: #FirstImpressions

The classic combination of Rajma-Chawal is a happy place for a lot of people. So when it came in the convenience of a boxed instant meal, how could we not try it?

A tangy tomato-based rajma gravy along with a plateful of steamed rice, topped with aam ka achaar sounds as satisfactory as finishing your to-do list on time! Ask any hardcore Punjabi – Rajma-Chaawal is sacred. So there is probably nothing better than finding it in a ready-to-eat box, for an anytime, anywhere meal!

We tried Haldiram’s Minute Khana – Rajma Chawal and here is our #FirstImpression. Will they win over or disappoint the rajma-chawal loving foodie in us?

#FirstImpression of Haldiram’s Minute Khana – Rajma Chawal

Haldiram’s Minute Khana – Rajma Chawal comes with a spoon and tissue. The food is packed in a box and then sealed into a foiled pack to retain its freshness. A nice step, we say.

Taste-wise, the gravy was overpowered by the taste of tomatoes making it too sour. The gravy is also a bit over salted. As for the quality of the cooked rajma and rice, the red kidney beans were broken and mushy. The rice was cooked well.

Sadly, the taste and texture were not satisfactory. This is currently not available online.

    Looks like I know what to pack when I travel next. Cannot survive without my weekly dose of rajma chawal. Are they travel friendly?
