Tastebud Satisfaction: Kohinoor Dal Fry and Chana Masala


I really like the Kohinoor brand of Indian dishes. Saucily termed “India on Platter,” these heat & eat meals soothe the harried, hungry soul whether you’ve got 15 minutes to squeeze in lunch or just don’t know what to make for dinner.

Plus they’re 100% vegetarian, ingredients you can not only understand at a glance but can read in less than a minute, and I just noticed that the boxes I have are marked Kosher.

I tried two: Chana Masala, or Seasoned Chickpeas, and Dal Fry, or Tempting Fried Yellow Lentils.

Tempting is right. Cooked separately, these work extremely well when served together because they share many of the same ingredients, such as tomatoes, onions, green chili and “authentic Indian spices” that include cumin, coriander and turmeric.


The Chana Masala further boasts fenugreek leaves and red chili, while the Dal Fry has red gram and green gram, which are lentils.

5 minutes will get you a tasty, satisfying meal. What are you waiting for? Get yourself to a health or Asian grocery store now!
