Prithi Chauthani is glad her son, a student in the US, still gets to eat the food cooked by her every day. Magic? No, tech actually. Prithi takes her son’s favourites, this month it’s biriyani, to Lalit Meisheri, who processes them into ready-to-eat, single-serve packs.
All her son has to do is place the packs in boiling water and, voila, out pops piping-hot mom’s biriyani! The food was about 7 kg when Prithi took it to Meisheri. After being processed, it weighs less than 2 kg and is easy to transport by air. And all it costed her was Rs 2,000. “His birthday is coming up and he is sure to have friends over,” she says, beaming. “I hope they like my biriyani.”
