There is a new Mom in town! And while this Mom can’t replace my doting mum back home, she definitely keeps me well fed while I am busy adulting, with no time respond to my tummy’s rumblings. This Mom is none other than the set of ready to eat meals from Meal Of The Moment – traditional Indian meals that you just need to add boiling water to before consuming. Their range of preservative-free and home-like meals include breakfast, lunch, and dessert items and the best part is that they do taste quite similar to a home-cooked meal.
The brand kindly sent me four of their meals to try – their Poha, Veg Biryani, Seviyan Kheer, and Kesari Halwa. I found all the meals extremely flavourful and yummy, although the Veg Biryani was a tiny bit salty for me. What I also love is the fact that the desserts come with a separate packet of sugar so that you can add as much or as little as you like. It is quite rare for a ready to eat meals brand to pay so much attention to the nutrition and health aspects of their products, most brands just roll with their ingredient list and do not care that their customers can’t control how much sugar to put in their food.
The USP of these meals is that while you can prepare them in a jiffy by simply adding boiling water or popping them in the microwave, they are way more healthy than most alternatives for instant meals available in the Indian market at the moment. Not only are these meals better than the bag of chips or box of cookies that you may reach for while stress eating, they are also more nutritious than the various brands of instant noodles and nutrition bars that are loaded with preservatives and other unhealthy ingredients.
Overall, each of these boxes of goodness will strike a chord in the hearts of everyone who is staying away from home and missing home-cooked meals that have a personal touch to them. They are also excellent for the busy moms and wives who need a break from cooking once in a while. As an added bonus, they are very affordable too, and one serving costs around INR 40 – 60. So the next time you want the comfort of mom’s food but cannot fly back to her, try out the next best thing – Meal of the Moment (MOM).
