My wife keeps bringing home these microwave ready Indian meals from tasty Bite and I keep eating them before she does. It is a fun game.
The latest meal was the Indian Bombay Potatoes and it fell into the category of “just okay”. Keep reading and we will cover:

Bombay Potatoes Nutrition and Calories
You get two servings per pouch and, let’s be honest, you will eat both of them. The calories and nutrition information for the whole pouch are:
- Calories: 270
- Fat: 10g (12% DV)
- Cholesterol: 0mg
- Sodium: 910mg (40%DV)
- Carbohydrates: 37g (14% DV)
- Protein: 8g
From a nutrition standpoint this meal is pretty much equivalent to the Madras Lentils at Costco. I appreciate that it relatively low and calories and fat but wish it had a little less salt.
How Do the Bombay Potatoes Taste?
This meal contains chunks of potatoes, along with chickpeas, that have been cooked in a curry type sauce and a Low/Medium spiciness level.
Tasty Bite suggests eating the meal with rice or naan bread, both of which are excellent suggestions, but I am watching calories and ate it by itself.
The meal tasted perfectly acceptable but was also completely uninteresting. Maybe it was unimpressed with the Bombay Potatoes because I tried the spectacular Tasty Bite Vindaloo a few days before I ate this meal and that is a tough act to follow.
The potatoes and chickpeas were very tender and the sauce was creamy but lacked anything that really made it interesting. Overall the meal was on par with some of the microwave ready Chickpea Masala meals I have tried.
The meal was filling and satisfying so I really don’t have anything to complain about. I guess you could say that this would be a great meal for someone who wants to give Indian food a try but is afraid of strange flavors or spicy food.
