I’d be interested to hear more about these.
Do they need to be simmered or can one pour boiling water on it and let it rehydrate for a few minutes?
What about nutrition/ingredients? Can you post a photo of the back of one of the packages?Apr 7, 2019 at 5:17 am #3587458
Thanks for your interest!
These meals can prepared by just adding 1 cup boiling water per serving. Takes 8 mins to rehydrate. Simmering is not needed.
The tub has a water line and makes measuring right amount of water very simple. Tubs are also reusable and water line works all breakfast and meal varieties pouches (dessert tubs are smaller). This is very convenient for backpacking. I carry one tub as my rehydration / eating bowl and rest of the meals in pouches.
Here is photo of the back of the pouch with nutrition and ingredients.

Coming originally from the UK we are big fans of Indian cuisine.Apr 8, 2019 at 8:46 pm #3587733
These look good..Apr 9, 2019 at 12:42 am #3587787
I ship to all countries, including Canada. Price includes shipping cost.
You will love these!
Thank you.Apr 17, 2019 at 3:36 am #3589193
I am excited to ship out these food packages from the India Post office in the Himalayas to Arizona, Florida, Tennessee, Connecticut, Colorado and Michigan.
I have more food packets in stock. Feel free to connect with me on email or facebook.
I underestimated the shipping cost and found that I had to pay more in shipping charges then the money I received for the meals. So, I am increasing the price to $4 for pouches and $4.5 for tubs. Try all 14 varieties for only $49 and save $10.Apr 20, 2019 at 5:30 pm #3589709
I will be shipping out the next batch of orders on monday (22nd April). I have still have some pouches and tubs available.May 9, 2019 at 10:30 pm #3592224

Does the Idli rehydrate separately from the Sambar? or does it all rehydrate in the same pot? Also, I assume these have the standard amount of Indian spiciness?May 10, 2019 at 3:42 am #3592258
Hi Ben, The idli and Sambar rehydrate together in the same pot. These are mini idlis.
The spice level is less then what you get in restaurants. Its more like home cooked food.May 10, 2019 at 3:48 am #3592260
If anyone is interested, I have one set of 14 different recipes in stock (ready to ship). My paypal email id email@example.comMay 10, 2019 at 9:48 pm #3592349

Matthew’s really brief reviews, having tasted three of them:
Mattar pulao – Deeeelicious rice dish with coriander and mustard seeds. This is what macaroni and cheese should be like. Comfort food. I could eat a bucket of this daily and not get bored.
Chinese fried rice – meh. Nice heat level in the sauce packet. I wouldn’t order this again. I like “Indian Chinese food” but this one had a funky spice I didn’t care for.
Kesari Halwa – I’m a sucker for semolina dishes. This dessert comes out like a semolina polenta and has a very generous packet of spiced powdered sugar. I went to town with the sugar and used less than half the packet.May 12, 2019 at 4:01 pm #3592645
Huzefa and I have spoken about this thread and agree that this is more appropriate in the Gear Deals forum since this is a business. He understands that he needs a special offer for BPL members. Huzefa has decided to offer an extra meal for BPL members who order his $49 variety pack.May 12, 2019 at 4:21 pm #3592647

It sounds to me like Huzefa has come with a long overdue contribution to backpacking meals. I don’t know if any of you prefer savory breakfasts, but if you do, upma is worth a try. It is one of my favorite breakfasts even front country. As always, execution is critical, but if he has gotten it right these dishes could be real winners.May 12, 2019 at 11:42 pm #3592694
