Review: Kudrati Naturally - Freeze-Dried Vegetarian Curries

Right guys, I know its been a while but I hope you can all forgive me - not least because most of you lucky b*ggers have been enjoying two weeks of backpacking 'heaven' on the Challenge!

Anyhoot, this ere' twerp hasn't been out since the abandoned Lakes trip in March so I'm going stir crazy for a wild camp. I have been looking at various things though, mainly for our 7 day trek in Norway in September around the Hardangerjokulen glacier - serweeet!

One of the issues for any unsupported trek is the need to carry all food and so I've been looking quite closely at food options. Clearly I'll be taking a lot of meals from Fuizion Foods but I also came across the Kudrati Naturally range of vegetarian curries. For the record I'm no vegetarian, but many of my favourite curries tend to be the meat free so I thought I'd give them a bash.

Rather than ramble on here, you can watch my ugly mug chomping on some of it here:

Hey Great vid thanks for that.

Do you know if they use MSG in those meal.
MSG always seems to make me very thirsty

Paul, you raise a very good question but it's one I don't know the answer to. I will drop them an email though and let everyone know the response.

Hi Paul, in case you're still interested here is the response from Neerav at Kudrati Naturally:

"I can confirm that there is no MSG - the recipe's are traditional recipes from Gujurat scaled up slightly to be commercial, but we've tried really hard (and succeeded) to make sure we don't use any additives, for preservation or flavour enhancement."
