Best packaged Indian food in the box/bag? (Tasty Bite, Swad, etc.)

andytee | Oct 18, 200910:22 AM     6

I've been getting into buying some of the packaged prepared Indian entrees for lunches at work - they are not too expensive ($1-4) and many are fairly healthy, most are vegetarian, almost none have any preservatives or additives, and they taste good.

I'm curious for peoples opinions on the best brands out there - so far I know Tasty Bite, Swad, and Kohinoor but I'm sure there are others. Think maybe Trader Joes has a store brand too? I've found a Kohinoor product that comes with rice, which is nice because while some dishes (Lentil Dal) work fine with no rice, others not so much.

Anyhow, if any of you buy these, I'd love opinions on your favorite brands and favorite dishes. A relatively healthy, shelf stable lunch that I can heat in the microwave is a good thing.
