I've blogged about A Taste of Thai before, and the other day next to A Taste of Thai products I saw A Taste of India. I decided to give it a try tonight; tomorrow I begin my second year of law school and didn't want to prepare anything too time-consuming for dinner (read: I was feeling incredibly lazy).
I picked up A Taste of India's Masala Rice and Lentils and was surprised to see how easily it was prepared. Just add a cup of water to the carton you purchased it in, add the contents which you originally found in the carton, and put it in the microwave. Voila! About 10 minutes later, you have a meal prepared.
As you can see from the picture, I put my own spin on the product by adding black beans. I enjoyed the flavor of the rice, but definitely need something extra in there. The box also suggested adding tofu, vegetables, or cheese to the rice.
I definitely could not have the rice on its own as a meal, but it is an easy way to prepare rice in a quick manner. The website lists the product as gluten free!
