Apparently, 97 per cent of Bengaluru residents believe eating out frequently is harmful for their health. Yet, they do. That’s exactly what Happy Cook, a city-based ‘unfood-tech’ company, is trying to change. Retaining the ‘artistic’ aspect of cooking, they have solved the physically exhausting aspects like sourcing, cleaning, cutting and portioning. Choose your dish and the number of servings, and they send you cutely packaged boxes with fresh-cut veggies, pre-marinated meat, pre-portioned ingredients and a detailed instruction card — all so you can cook up a storm at home.
Pick from their starters and sides like Chilli Garlic Prawns, Bhindi Masala and Koorka Ularthiyathu (stir-fried Chinese potato), and mains which include Malabar Fish Curry and Punjabi Chicken Curry. They also have combos which come with chapati or rice.vI ordered the Coorgi Mushroom Masala. The cooking time was around 30 minutes and the Coorgi Mushroom Masala turned out exactly the way shown on the box. Paired with chapati, it was spicy, peppery and fiery, and tasted every bit gourmet. The portions were also adequate and value for money.
We love the attention to detail, from making mention of what equipment you will need based on the recipe you pick to packaging, which comes with cute little stickers and boutique recipe cards! Price start at INR 99 upwards
