Product Review: Instant Mixes from "Oota Tindi"

This is a post that I take great pride in writing. Right off the bat, let me make it plainly known that nobody requested me to write this post so I'm not going to brand it as an advertorial. This is just me voluntarily spreading the word about a group of Bangalore-based entrepreneurs who have kick-started this brand new venture called "Oota Tindi" that offers premium quality tasty processed food. 

Oota Tindi (which literally translates to Lunch-Breakfast in Kannada) strives to provide good food using ingredients that are consistently of superior quality without the addition of preservatives. Now you might be wondering how I can vouch for the authenticity of the above statement. Believe me, I can....because the culinary expert who has spearheaded this venture is none other than my maternal uncle who has over a decade of experience in the food industry. My uncle together with his daughter (my cousin) and her husband have joined forces to create products products that have been tastefully crafted to bring out the flavours and taste that your palate will fall in love with. In an era where ready-to-eat food and instant mixes are gaining widespread popularity owing to the lifestyle changes of today's generation, I think it is easy to lose track of the quality control and hygiene standards behind the manufacturing of such products. That is where Oota Tindi scores big because all the ingredients have been carefully sourced and the mixes are created and packaged under the most sanitary of conditions. 

Speaking of my uncle, I have actually mentioned him before in one of my previous post's chronicling my love for Masala Dosa and I have also acknowledged my cousin in a post that I did about Ukkarisida Akki Rotti. My uncle who has a penchant for perfection, is undoubtedly the best cook in our family and we all routinely bombard him with recipe-related queries. His proficiency in cooking is one of the reasons that people are drawn to his residence like a swarm of bees. Badam Burfi, Kaju Burfi, Dry Fruit Burfi, Mysore Pak, Basundi, Masala Dosa, Vada, Sambhar, Rava Idli, Bisibele Bath, Biriyani are some of his specialities that immediately come to mind. In the past, when he was actively engaged in the restaurant business, me and my cousins hardly used to eat at home, preferring to have all our meals at his restaurant! That is how good it was and that is how creative and talented he still continues to be in the culinary department  Once I heard that he was re-entering the food industry, I was thrilled for him and I knew that whatever he would do, he would do it with utmost honesty, sincerity and ethics. That is the reason why I readily posted a review for this venture without a second thought and without even being asked to. You can trust that the opinions in this post are completely unbiased.
