In everyone's life there comes a time & age when rebelling with our sleep for the sake of social gatherings that may take up the entire night becomes a task we don't wish to perform. Dressing up, hitting all those lit parties in the city, drinking up the body weight and then waking up the next day with the most dreadful hangover. I am getting dizzy just writing about it let alone enjoy it. No offence to those who take joy in it but I like my nights the way I like my food. Pleasant and without any uninvited ingredients.
Speaking of which, are you one of those who love eating and partying but alone? And also, dread cooking? Yeah! Me too. I would give anything to have my meals cooked and served without having to pay a lot for it. But I guess, not being able to make enough to afford a butler comes in the way. Anyhoo, everyone with the same condition as mine can relax now.
Why? Well, because I have with me an entire list of frozen snacks & RTE mixes you can get delivered at your doorsteps from ITC store... right now. Now, you can party alone without wasting more than 10 minutes in the kitchen.
1. Frozen Veggie Pizza Pockets
Pizza pockets at home? Looks like heaps of work but with ITC's frozen veggie pizza pockets, it isn't. If you ask me, frozen food is like a best friend we should always hold on to. It will not only serve as a great snack but save you a lot of time and effort. A must-have in your refrigerator/pantry at all times. And don't worry all the classic flavours of pizza such as cheese, capsicum, onion, sweet corn and oregano seasoning are enclosed in these golden pockets which BTW are extremely tasty.
2. Frozen Large Prawns
For the admirers of seafood, these frozen prawns packs and that too in this quantity will be a great way to party without having to put in a lot of work. Now, I understand how cumbersome it is to cook seafood at home. But with these frozen ones you can waive off the cooking period entirely and straightaway enjoy the treat with some dip at home. However, if you feel like cooking at some point you can whip up some Prawn croquettes or Prawn Terrines out of these.
3. Frozen Chicken Galouti Kebab
Galouti kebab isn't an easy dish to prepare at home. Especially for people like me. Yes, the kind who don't believe in cooking but can't stop eating. These frozen chicken Galouti kebab will solve the hunger issues and keep you satisfied for at least next month. The kebabs will melt in your mouth right away and you don't even need to deep fry them. They'll be as awesome as they look even if you fry them modestly on a Tawa. However, I do have a pro tip. You can turn this snack into a late-night dinner by ordering some Rumali Rotis, mint chutney & vinegar onions from the nearest restaurant.
4. Frozen Achaari Beetroot Kebabs
These soft, melt-in-mouth kebabs are a unique combination of our favourite Achaari flavour brought to life by its little red friend... beetroot. These frozen savoury kebabs healthy, fat-free and you can easily prepare them on a Tawa. You can slide these inside a sandwich, burger, roll or keep it au natural by sprinkling some chaat masala and chutney on the side. It's a great snack when you're watching a movie with a bottle of pinot noir.

It's one of the best dinners you could ask for where your efforts will dial down to just heating and eating. And fret not, this packaging contains no preservatives and only 100% natural ingredients. Hope now you can enjoy an RTE meal without worrying about the consequences. You're welcome.
6. Ready To Eat Pav Bhaji
Sounds like an odd dish for dinner? We are spending weekends alone at home with no one around to judge. Hence, the perfect opportunity to eat whatever you want for dinner. I picked up Pav Bhaji since it needs a lot of labour when prepared from scratch. However, now with this ready to eat formula, you and I both can enjoy a hearty portion of our favourite street food without much effort. All you need to do is buy Pav buns from the market and have a delightful time at home.
7. Ready To Eat Moong Dal Halwa
A dessert which is effortless in the kitchen is always welcomed in a lazy household. This one right here is all-natural ingredients inspired by Jodhupuri flavours bestowed upon a classic Moong Dal Halwa. Relish it with chopped almonds and cashews, and enjoy this nice hot bowl of everyone's beloved Indian dessert right after your dinner.
Any season spent at home with family, friends or alone marks a more memorable night than any other. Make ITC a part of this celebration and you will not regret it.
