Keep It Real Kitchen people are calling 'the best' curry delivery service in Liverpool

By Amy Browne

If you love Indian food there’s a food delivery service dishing up tasty curries that some are calling “the best” on Merseyside.

Keep It Real Kitchen is amassing a loyal following of people who love its range of ‘real Indian food ’, that is delivered to your doorstep.

Many who are following the service on Instagram have been tagging friends to let them know about it, and telling them it is "the best" in the city.

The food arrives chilled and can be heated up in minutes in the microwave. But trust me, this tastes like no microwave meal you’ve had before.

Having ordered a range of curries and sides from the service, I can honestly say it’s one of the tastiest takeaways I’ve ever had. I love Indian food, but rarely order curry as there are few takeaways I really enjoy them from.

Having heard good things about Keep It Real Kitchen, I was excited to try it and see if the glowing reviews were to be believed.

In each box you can order a selection of curries (choosing from six to eight options) two rice (either pilau, plain or lemon) two vegetable sides, snack bites (such as pakoras vegetable bhajis, street food) or breads such as flavoured naan, chapati or roti and poppadoms.

The menu changes every month, but from the choices available when we ordered we chose Keralan Beef Fry, Lamb Jalfrezi and Chicken Rusht, which is spiced pan fried chicken thighs in a masala sauce. We also ordered a selection of Puri and Roti Breads, Papadoms and rice.

The delivery came in a huge box, with a sheet of instructions for how to heat it up, which was really simple to follow. It's easy to be snobby about the thought of having reheated meal and something you might associate with supermarket curry boxes that are cheap but not always so cheerful.

But once plated up, the aromas from the dishes in front of us certainly smelled authentic and as we got stuck in it was clear why this service is building up such a following.

The Keralan Beef Fry was slow cooked resulting in melt-in-the-mouth tender meat and it had a good heat to it, with a subtle coconut flavour throughout. The Lamb Jalfriezi had more of a chunky texture, with the peppers adding plenty of sweetness to the fiery flavour of the sauce.
The Chicken Rusht was nicely spiced but had had less heat to it and was a good one if you like a traditional curry flavour. I enjoyed the Rotis and Puri breads as well to soak up all the sauce, rather than naan bread, which can often be far too filling for me.
I couldn't fault the flavours and the fact that the menu changes monthly is a great idea that will certainly keep me coming back for more.
