Missing home food? Too lazy to cook? Don’t know how to cook? Or probably stayingat home has propelled you to cook? Curry Tree is the answer to all those questions. Started by Brijesh and Prajanya, Curry Tree sells ready-to-cook curry pastes that are curated by chefs and aims to make cooking easy, convenient and accessible. Their range of bottled curry pastes are for everyone, for the seasoned chef, the noob maggi-maker and the mama’s boy. The brand only specialises in Indian curry mixes and all their pastes offer the flexibility in terms of the protein that can be used. For instance, the Kerala roast mix can be eaten with chicken, eggs, mutton and even veggies.
Curry Tree’s Kerala Roast Paste knocks everything out of the ballpark with its caramelized onion sweetness. It pairs best with eggs and you can ‘belt’ it along with slices of bread for a hearty family breakfast. They also sell the relatively drier green Goan Cafreal Masala Paste that comes packed in a dark green colour and a spicy hit. You could savour these with potato or the classic chicken for best results. Their brownish Chettinad Masala Paste with its peppery zing is yet another delight.
All their curry pastes appeal to different flavour profiles and can be stored up to six months in the refrigerator. They come in a standard 200g bottle and prices vary between INR 249 - INR 289. Each container can feed eight people and orders can be placed through their website, or on standard e-commerce platforms. Cooking time is less than 20 minutes!
