Here's what others have to say...



  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Ive said this on pretty much all my food reviews but these things are just better when theyre spicy cause otherwise youre just going to douce it in hot sauce. This one was good with out hot sauce.

Also i just read matt pizzas review and hes got some good ideas too...


Pair with Pilsner

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I am totally blown away by this meal. Never would I have thought something so tasty would come out of a package you fill with water. This is an excellent addition to any backpacking trip if you're into happy bellies!



  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is definitely one of my favorite BP meals. Tastes better with a little hot sauce in there... but what doesn't. The Indian flavors really lend themselves to excellent backpacking meals.


Tastes pretty good

    My wife took this on a backcountry ski camping trip. She's picky about taste so when she says it's pretty good, it is ( I mean, I guess for backpacking food). Easy to cook per instructions and portion size is as described.



    • Gender:Male
    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Same 500ish calorie mark as most other dried meals but with less food. Great for the cold elevation when you need to eat but your appetite might not be there. Taste wise, this is the best dried meal ive had.


    Looking forward to this

      I got this because I often need an escape from other bland dehydrated meals. I'm pretty excited to have something with some spice to it. I have had Backpackers Pantry before and have been pleased. I'm really looking forward to this one.

      Taste bud explosion!

      Lots of flavor, a little spicy. What's not to like? Probably one of BP's best entrees. (High Uintas Wilderness)

      Did you cook outside of the pouch, or transfer the contents to the container after? I have a jetboil stove and I always wondered if I should cook the freeze dried meals inside the "companion cup" with the cozy...thoughts?

      To save space and packaging on longer trips I put the freeze dried meals in smaller Ziploc bags and "cook" them in a quart size Ziploc container w/ lid. If your Jetboil cup is big enough you could add the freeze dried meal to heated water right in that and cook it that way, but if you have the original pouch why not use that and save cleaning dishes?


      Spicy & Delicious!

        Man is this good! Serious kick, really flavorful, very filling. This might be my new favorite.
