Five Delivery Services That Will Make Home Cooking Easy

    Making healthier, food choices this coming New Year? Then, there can’t be anything better than home-cooked food. But work schedules and general laziness can come in the way of you whipping up delicious meals. We hear you! So, we’ve dug up five online, delivery services that’ll bring you the goods right to your doorstep. From meat marinades to diced vegetables and meal kits – cooking up a storm in the kitchen never got this easy!

    Licious

    Stock up your freezer with fresh meats and marinades from this popular service. If you insist on making a dish from scratch, then, you can pick up the cuts of meat (chicken, lamb, and goat) that you like. Their fresh seafood section has plenty of options from Atlantic Salmon Steaks to Indian salmon, blue crabs, and sardines. But for those of you looking to cut corners, we recommend the marinades section. Here, find Habanero Chicken Wings rubs, as well as Chicken Tikka, Pudina Prawn Tikka, and Lamb Lucknowi Tikkis. All you have to do is toss these in a pan and feast away when they are ready.

    Chefkraft

    When you want to eat a home-cooked meal with a gourmet twist turn to Chefkraft. To ensure that you have something to do in the kitchen, we recommend you skip their ready-to-eat meals and head straight for their recipe kits. They usually have options like Cheesy Chicken Quesadillas and Peri Peri Chicken. Once it’s delivered home, you’ll only have to add the final touches to the dish before wolfing it down. They also have curated menus for the week. Think burgers and sandwiches, smoothies and soups and salads.

    Big Basket

    This one’s a no-brainer. Big Basket has everything you need to fill up your pantry. But, for those of us who can’t spend a lot of time on cutting and peeling our way through kilos of veggies, they solve that problem too. Just click through to their Fruits & Vegetables section and you can pick from diced ladies’ finger, grated cabbage, peeled garlic, sliced cucumbers and whatnot. There’s also the meat section for fish, chicken, and mutton to make life easier. But of course, we say, pick the marinated options. From Amritsari Achari Murgh and Smoked Turkey Ham to Caribbean Jerk and Peri Peri Chicken, there’s plenty of protein choices here.  

    Towness

Here, you can find semi-cooked rotis or naans if you prefer. They also have a range of premixes for Oats Pongal and Bisibele Bath as well as bottled pizza sauce.
