Kents Kitchen meal kits 

Published April 6, 2015 by Bizzimummy

Being a single parent of 3 means I rarely have time to cook myself a nice meal that I enjoy from scratch. I love spicy foods such as curries but making them from scratch is usually time consuming. Then there’s the issue of having no one to share it with and making too much which will just end up binned. Well  Kents Kitchen have bought out an easy solution in the form of very tasty and easy meal kits.  

There are many to choose from including several well known traditional curries, oriental dishes, Chilli con carne and a few other dishes which I am not so familiar with. I have been sent over two meal kits and both of them happen to be curries which I really like.  

These kits are quite small in size and take up very little cupboard space (unlike the large jars). There is also minimal packaging and therefore less waste. 

The kits comprise of 3 little pots. In the case of the curries it’s usually an oil (for frying the meat in), a curry paste and an infused spice mix.  

Each pack comes with a pull off label explaining what ingredients are needed to make the dish and the method on reverse. 

In this post I am making the chicken jalfrezi which is one of my favourite curries (tho I usually order rather than make it). As well as the meal kit pots, I also needed – Chicken fillet, onion, green pepper, and a tin of chopped tomatoes. The packet does give required amounts but this can be adjusted for more people or in my case less.  

First I had to fry the chicken and onions with the garlic oil pot. This was very strong, lots of garlic aromas in my kitchen. Once the chicken was browning I added the curry paste and green peppers.  

Then the spice mix and tomatoes and left to cook for a further 6 minutes or so. The spice aromas were very strong and the dish was looking very colourful.  

The Jalfrezi took about 15 minutes in total to cook. It was very spicy and full of delicious flavour. As I made it myself I know exactly what has gone into it – lots of fresh ingredients.  

I am looking forward to making the Spicy Korma too. 

Each meal kit requires different ingredients such as meats, fish and vegetables, sometimes yoghurt too. However the ingredients do seem to be simple things that are found in most supermarkets and nothing that is hard to get hold of. 

Kents Kitchen also sell a selection of easy meal Pasta pots, posh noodles, sauces, gravies, stuffings and stockpots. Visit Kents Kitchen to see more.
