Here are our answers to the questions we get asked a lot.

A DIY (Do It Yourself) Kit is a box that contains a designed recipe and pre-portioned ingredients that go with it. We deliver the non-perishable (and possibly tedious) ingredients in the right proportion and quantity. Ready to be cooked with recipe included. The idea is to make cooking hassle free and waste free for you.

60% of your overall cooking time goes into sourcing, cutting, cleaning and portioning ingredients. With our DIY Kits you get the satisfaction of cooking, without worrying about wasting, and achieving that tricky balance between getting both nutrition & good taste right.

Each box has pre-portioned ingredients along with an ingredient list and a detailed step by step recipe card. We provide all the ingredients except for the perishables (fresh vegetables) in order to allow for the ease of shelf life and it allows the end user to convert the dish in to a veg or non veg meal as per their preference.

We send you all the main ingredients needed to make the dish except for the perishables such as vegetables or meat. You will also be required to use some standard pantry ingredients like oil and salt that are readily available in your kitchen.

All 3 of our kits can be prepared in less than 30 minutes.
