4 Fall-Ready Flavor Pairings


As we welcome the fall season in with cooler days and cozier recipes, we’re feeling inspired by the flavor possibilities of our First Collection of plant-based Indian meals.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again—our meals are delicious straight from the freezer while also being a base for toppings and sides tailored to your taste. With fall on the mind, we’re thinking of all the crave-worthy flavor pairings we’ll be bringing to our table this season.

From warm flavors, spices, and comforting meals, we’re looking forward to getting creative with how we enjoy House of Kajaana. If you’re curious about what we’ll be reaching for, keep on reading for some fall flavor inspiration…

When we need a healthy lunch or dinner, we’ll reach for our Roasted Butternut Saag and top it with crispy shallots for a satisfying crunch and savory-sweet flavor. Crispy shallots are among our favorite garnishes because they can go with almost everything.

It may be an unlikely pairing, but the tart sweetness of pomegranates can complement a savory dish by creating balance and adding more color to your plate. Typically, we think of eating pomegranate seeds by the handful or as a yogurt topping, but next time you heat up a House of Kajaana meal, try adding some pomegranates mixed in—or even looking for a pomegranate chutney recipe.

Turn up the heat when you top your House of Kajaana favorites with sliced chili peppers. While each of our meals features a warming spice, you can turn up the heat to your preferred spice level with spices or peppers that you have on hand.

We love a sweet treat after dinner, and Malai’s Masala Chai ice cream is the perfect blend of sweet and spicy. We always look forward to enjoying a scoop (or two!) of this indulgent tea-inspired treat, especially in the fall.

The beauty of our delicious and nutrient-dense meals is that they can be customized to your liking, from spice to sweetness. Their chef-crafted and versatile flavors make them a freezer staple for nights when you’re dining solo or sharing a meal with a friend.

Whether meal-planning for the week or sourcing inspiration for your next dinner party menu, we hope these autumnal-inspired flavors will make it to your table. You might just find your new favorite topping!
