Zzungry is a food delivery service that believes in offering chef prepared food to the common man! Bangalore is home to a host of food delivery services that specialize in various cuisines. Zzungry focusses on serving up dishes from the Royal Indian Kitchens. They work on getting the top dishes from Kashmir to Kanyakumari at your doorstep. All this, at very reasonable prices 🙂
Now, I’ve been ordering food for quite sometime, but the difference between then and now is quite simple. Back then, I used to call up a restaurant for a home delivery, but now, there are speciality food ordering restaurants. What’s nice to see is that the menu at Zzungry changes every week. Even if I’m ordering, I make it a point to check their menu for the week!!
I happened to order a bunch of items from their website. I pay a lot of attention to the user interface and I thought they did an excellent job at keeping their website clean and easy to work through! Full points on that.
If there’s one thing, that everyone in the food delivery business needs to learn, from Zzungry, is the packaging style! The 2 boxes that were sent to me were so spectacular, that I did not expect it to be any better. Like seriously!!
Zaituni Paneer Tikka
If there’s one thing I love in vegetarian, it has to be paneer. I couldn’t be happier seeing a couple of thick paneer cubes, which looked like, it was right off the tandoor! The paneer was soft, creamy and had an amazing blend of spices. It had that great sweet taste, that I crave for, every time I eat paneer. The dish was fresh, flavorful, rich in taste and one of the best I’ve had in quite sometime!!
Half the battle was already won, when Zzungry was able to tick off all the right boxes w.r.t this dish!!
Murg Sholay Kabab
If there’s something I love in Non vegetarian, it’s got to be chicken. And in chicken, I mostly prefer finger food and not the curries. So, I was quite keen on trying the chicken tikka that Zzungry had to offer. Let me tell you, it looked great! The first cut, made me realize that the chicken was tender, which is just a perfect start to the tasting ! Now came the defining moment; did it taste any good? Oh boy, it did!! The taste was very good.
Tandoori Malai Broccoli
This was an interesting dish. The dish had generous amount of cream added on the broccoli. The cream was thick and good. The broccoli however was raw and not something that I liked. I’m not sure if that’s supposed to be the way it was. But, my taste buds certainly didn’t approve of this 😦
I went crazy with four different Indian curries with a vegetable pulao 🙂
This was a kerala style chicken curry. This dish is a very popular one in Kerala and there are many different styles of cooking this. Think of it as chilly chicken of the other side of the world 🙂 The main ingredients would be coconut oil, curry leaves and garam masala. The taste of the chicken was outstanding and I’m running short of the adjectives to describe how good this dish was 🙂 This dish was the hero of the whole meal 🙂 The spices used to create this dish were impeccable. I totally recommend this dish( of course if it’s on the weekly menu 🙂 )
This was another chicken curry that I tried. The creamy goodness of the gravy was delightful. The taste of the chicken wasn’t as good as I would have liked, but it was by no means a poor dish, when I say that. It was not something that hit a home run, like kozhi perrattu did, but still like a 4 on 5 🙂
Hyderabadi Paneer Korma
The paneer korma curry in hyderabadi style was extremely good. The sweet gravy( which I love) and the succulent cubes of paneer is just the perfect vegetarian curry, one can have 🙂
Mutton Kola Urundai Kuzhambu
This is a chettinad style mutton balls dish. I’ve grown up eating this dish. I have a fondness for this dish. The mutton was spicy, a bit too much for my liking. The curry was extremely good. I thought the meatball could have been a little less spicy. This is my preference. Some may like it spicy, but youhave been warned 🙂
I’m sure you would agree with me, if I say that this pulao looks absolutely beautiful. Not that my photograph is good, but well it’s just such a looker!
The presentation of the dish was wonderful. It screamed ‘rich’ right from the word go! I opened the box to see fried cashews and onion. The long grained basmati rice is what I love ! and the gentle coloring used in this bowl of happiness was all I could have asked for, to pair with the curries I ordered!
The pulao was light,even though it looked so damn heavy 🙂
Chenna Makhana Sangam
The quantity of this dish was something that worried me a lot. It was a huge bowl of dessert, which I was sure I was going to end up wasting. As soon as I opened the lid of the bowl, I could smell the incredible flavors of the dessert. The first spoon that I had of this dessert, I was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting an extremely sweet dish, but on the contrary, it was just perfect in terms of the sweetness. I finished the whole bowl in one sitting, I was so happy that the end of my meal was a perfect one!
Areas of Improvement by Butter theory
* One of the biggest problem around the online food ordering platform is the packaging and I’ve seen everyone struggling here. The reason I say this is that the boxes all look wonderful before they’re opened. Once they’re opened, the oil starts to drip and that isn’t a pleasant sight for anyone. Since most of the items I ordered were curries, I may have had too many items with oil dripping from the sides. Now, make no mistake, the dishes don’t have too much oil in them. The balance of the oil is perfect and it’s just that they somehow need to ensure the oil doesn’t drip.
* The website could probably have a list of items that were in the last week’s menu. I know that may confuse people, but when I went back to the website, I didn’t find what I had ordered the last time around !!
