A New York lawyer's adventures with animal-free eating
Tag Archives: pillsbury roti
As you may know, I ❤ Indian food, especially Aloo Mutter. I may (aka, definitely did) have referred to the eating experience as orgasmic. Yum.
Anyway, anytime I see a vegan Indian product I haven’t seen before, I grab it. Recently, I tried Kohinoor Awadhi Aloo Mutter and Pillsbury Ready to Puff Roti – the Roti I found at an Indian market in Ozone Park, Queens.
The Aloo Mutter was really good. A touch hot, excellent spices. I could’ve used a little more sauce, but this was an excellent (and super fast) dish.
As for the Roti… Apparently there are a lot of reviews for Pillsbury Roti online, saying that they only puff up partially. Well, I didn’t know that, and I thought I was just being dumb. Oh well.
All of those reviews were right – the roti only puffed up a little bit. It was fun to do it, though, and the flavor was pretty good!
Verdict: I would definitely get the Aloo Mutter again. The Roti was fun for the novelty factor, but I’ll make my own…
