Ten Second Takeaway
Gurgaon’s lunch-box delivery service, Zazabox, brings calorie-conscious gourmet meals right to your doorstep. With a variety of options and a well-priced menu, this one has us excited.
Ticking the right boxes
It’s a working person’s lunch, that says a polite ‘no thank you’ to simple ghar ka khana; these meal boxes amp up the average lunch with gourmet options, bursting with flavour. Meal box options include a daily changing Yogi Box which is Indian, a Traveller Box which is Continental, and a Lean Box for the admirably disciplined. There are also standalone snacks, desserts and juices.
Thinking outside the box
Going to ridiculous lengths to remain low cholesterol and calorie controlled, there are absolutely no lazy short-cuts to impeccable flavour. The malai in the Malai Kofta comes from churned cashews instead of cream, the garlic used is the organic desi variant instead of easier-to-peel Chinese garlic, and the popular quinoa is replaced with locally sourced Amaranth. The thyme and rosemary are shade dried instead of air dried to lock in nutrients and flavour, forgotten grains like ragi and bajra are used in their rotis, and sweets are made sweeter with jaggery, not sugar.
Health is wealth
Everything is uber healthy, and usually it takes determination to find pleasure in that. Not the case here. Our Four Sprout Bhel was tangy, the side salad of Pakchoy & Cherry Tomatoes was stellar and spicy, and the Mango-Filled Vietnamese roll was just wow! Our favourites for the day were easily the All-Day Breakfast Parfait topped with candied organic walnuts, and the cold-pressed Beetroot Pomegranate Lychee & Ginger Juice, which tastes exactly what it sounds like. Yum.
Even the chocolate is made with organic raw cacao instead of the processed stuff, so all the purported benefits of chocolate stay true.
Named as homage to the buzzing sound of bees that make so much pollination possible, Zazabox stays well behaved till the end, with compostable packaging.
