Saffron Road Food Products Review and Giveaway

Saffron Road Simmer Sauce Giveaway
About Saffron Road:
"We invite you to enjoy Saffron Road’s all natural halal certified world cuisine. We know that great food begins at the farm, so we source our ingredients from only the finest producers available. It’s no coincidence that we buy from small sustainably run family farms."

I recently tried Chickpeas Snacks, Simmer Sauces and Vegetable Broth from Saffron Road. 

Simmer Sauces:
I am not a big fan of frozen food and cook daily at home. Sometimes, I am too tired after whole day's work, that I have very little energy left for cooking meals. For those days, easy to use Simmer Sauce is a good option for preparing meals in minutes.Simmer Sauce comes in 4 flavors.

Rogan Josh and Tikka Masala  Simmer sauces come under Indian Cuisine. I love Indian food and was excited to try these 2 products. 

I don't know the actual recipe for preparing Rogan Josh. I am vegetarian, I prepared it with lots of vegetables like green pepper, tomatoes, beans, onions etc. I first cut and stir fried all these veggies and then put half packet of simmer sauce on top of that. 

Indian food is famous for spices, shades and hot flavors. Rogan Josh simmer sauce is having lots of spices. I usually eat hot and spicy food, so it was quite normal for me. But, if you can't take that hot products, then you have to add a very little amount of sauce to your food. 

This sauce added very unique taste to normal veggies and was good change from daily routine.
This is how Rogan Josh simmer sauce looked.

For preparing Tikka Masala, I bought Paneer(cheese cubes) from Indian Store. Then I cut that in little cubes and after frying it I added this simmer sauce. It tasted nice.

Other simmer sauces which I got were Moroccan Tagine and LemonGrass Brazil. I don't know how to prepare Moroccan and Thai dishes, so I haven't used these 2 sauces yet.

Overall, I liked the concept of simmer sauces. With these, you can make tasty meals in less time and with more convenience.

Chickpeas Snacks:

I tried three flavors of crunchy chickpeas snacks. Bombay Spice, Falafel and Wasabi.
If you like hot, spicy chickpeas then you would love to try this snack. Level of hotness varies in all flavors and packets are marked with it. Picture here shows Bombay Spice Chickpeas.
I can feel garlic, chillies, crunchiness and hotness in each chickpea.I liked these snacks.

Classic Culinary Vegetable Broth:

I prepared Vegetable Mushroom Soup using Classic Culinary Vegetable Broth.Soup tasted good.I am not an experienced person in matter of soups, so I can't tell what difference I felt in Saffron Road Broth.

You have to use opened broth within 7 days.
