As a food blogger, I am always on the look out for new places and new cuisines. Now that I am stuck at office from 9 to 7 with no time to go out, I turned my attention to online food delivery portals. That’s when I came across Zzungry. The people at Zzungry were kind enough to give me a preview of their food.
Before I start raving about the food, here’s a little something about them:
– Zzungry’s main motive is to change the general perception of Indian food. When we think ”exotic”, Indian food rarely ever comes to our mind. And they want to alter that, by making it ”Royal”.
– They have an extensive Indian menu, with wonderful, rich dishes that will impress your taste buds. Their USP is that they are a five star hotel, but in the online space.
– They have explored cuisines in various states of India, like ”jhgdycgcbdjkhcj” and plan to explore every authentic cuisine in the country
When I saw the food that they had sent, I was shocked. The varieties were numerous ( at least around 15 boxes) and each looked better than the other. If I have to write about each dish, I would have to write a book. So here’s a sneak peak into Zzungry’s amazing food:
Appetizers: There were three veg appetizers- Paneer Tikka, Kalanji Bhutta Kebab and Tandoori Broccoli. The Paneer Tikka was malai and not achari. It was soft, wonderfully cooked and so very creamy. It melted in the mouth. The corn kebab was a little like the tandoori corn that you usually get. I loved the flavours and the way it was grilled. Would have preferred a little spice though.
Main course: There was a paneer gravy, a soya-cashew gravy, kashmiri pulao, lacha parantha, and nachini bhutta parantha. The pulao was delighful. Basmati rice, some masala and pomegranate seeds. Wow! The paneer gravy had a thick gravy, tomato based and some more of the soft paneer.
Ooh.. there was chicken, chicken and more chicken and all my chicken cravings were satisfied. There was chicken in andhra style (kozhi peralta), angara murg champ, injithairu kabab and more. There was also chicken curry in a rich gravy. Thankfully, all of them were boneless. It’s usually very difficult to find chicken that isn’t rubbery, but here, the chicken was perfectly cooked. It was soft, fresh and not rubbery at all. The spices and flavours on each of these dishes were unique and wonderful.
Note: They have non vegetarian options in all kinds of meat, but they sent me only in Chicken as that’s the only meat I consume.
Tandoori Broccoli- I am a huge, huge fan of broccoli but I had never imagined an Indian version of it. This was cooked in tandoor and flavoured with malai and cream. It was so creamy, and so so perfect. I loved it!
Soya cashew gravy- Soya in a gravy? Yes, please. I usually associate soya with boredom but this one was kick ass. The soya went so well with the cashew. Yumm!
Bhutta Parantha- Corn parantha, yay! The softest parantha stuffed with corn. It was so good, it could be eaten all my itself.
Packaging– 4.5/5 (such rich packing!)
Happiness Quotient– 4.5/5
I ate like a queen, thanks to Zzungry. One thing is for sure: When I am craving some good, exotic Indian food, I know where I am going to order from.
Okay, this review got me craving for some of that Tandoori Broccoli. I gotta go order now!
