Indian Fare


I’ve discovered something delightful — Indian Fare from Trader Joe’s! The small little box contains a pouch of Indian food, in this case Punjab Choley, that serves two. You drop the foil pack into boiling water for 3 minutes, take it out, rip off the top and then dump it into a bowl. Punjab choley is well spiced with ginger, garlic, cardamom, and cloves to name just a few. A serving is 210 calories, 8g of fat (0 sat fat & 0 trans fat), 6g of dietary fiber, 0 sugar, and 7g protein and the cost per box is $2.19. For that price, great taste, and good nutritional choice, I’m sold!

Now, you’ll notice that another brand is featured in the photo. It’s Truly Indian. Our grocery store (Safeway) sells it and it is the TJ’s equivalent of Punjab choley. It, too, is tasty, but is a degree hotter and costs significantly more. Truly Indian was on sale for $3.49.

Having a newborn at home and not getting out much for some tasty treats, this is a great addition to my afternoon chicken caesar salad. On other occasions, I’ve added sauteed zucchini, tomatoes, and chicken to it for a complete meal. No matter how you prefer it, give Indian Fare a try if you have a Trader Joe’s nearby. Mmm!
