MY APRICOT KITCHEN LAUNCHES NEW CHILLED RANGE
Award winning Irish/Indian artisan food company My Apricot Kitchen has launched a new range of chilled vegetarian meals featuring all natural ingredients. These products are now available in SuperValu and speciality food stores in Ireland.
My Apricot Kitchen products feature locally sourced natural Irish ingredients and hand ground spices. The new authentic Indian chilled range comprises three dishes
Vegetable Korma: A very rich aromatic medley of seasonal vegetables.
No coconut milk has been used and instead the dish is balanced with pumpkin seeds. The quintessential Indian ingredient of dried Fenugreek leaves adds great depth of flavour. This sumptuous curry is perfect for indulging over the weekend with some Naan bread and pilaf rice.
Ingredients include: tomatoes, peas, onions, carrots, green peppers, aubergines, green beans, broccoli, raisins, ginger, pumpkin seeds and garam masala
Lentil Kofta Tikka Masala: A healthy high protein vegan Indian and Middle Eastern fusion kofta featuring Tikka Masala gravy with spongy lentil balls.
The kofta is simple and not overly spiced and is accompanied by a nutritious tikka gravy.
The base is tomato with carrot, mixed peppers and broccoli stems. As it is vegan in order to thicken the gravy My Apricot Kitchen has used buckwheat flour and sweetened it with raisins.
Ingredients include: Tomatoes, onions, carrots, broccoli, mixed bell peppers, raisins, garlic, ginger, coriander seeds, garam masala and fenugreek leaves
Soya Free Tofu Saag: This high protein side dish features soya free tofu with chickpea flour and buckwheat flour with spinach, spices and herbs.
This soya free tofu is based on Pitod, a very traditional popular dish from the western Indian state of Rajashtan where water is scarce so people depend on dry foods such as legumes which are high in protein.
Buckwheat has been added to the gram flour base to make it more nutritious. It also includes asafoetida which helps in digestion and provides a beautiful lingering aroma.
Ideal for everyday consumption this is perfectly accompanied with flat bread and rice.
Ingredients include: Spinach, tomatoes, onions, chickpea flour, buckwheat flour, garlic, mixed curry spices, cumin seeds, turmeric and asafoetida
