    Connecting talented home chefs to hungry customers is Masalabox.com, a venture by Harsha Thachery and Liya Verghese. About seven months old in Kochi, the portal was soft launched in Bangalore last week. The Kochi model took off with close to 300 dishes served to date. Fifteen chefs have already signed on in Bangalore, but the duo is still looking for more. “Within the first two days, we received 230 applications, but our curating process is elaborate so it’s going to take more time,” shares Thachery.

    With strict quality checks, the menu changes daily, offering light business lunches and heavier dinners with healthy options too. The food is eclectic —from traditional South Indian puliogare, akki roti and neer dosa with Kundapur chicken to shepherd’s pie, Moroccan couscous salad and pavlova. “We have chefs specialising in Mangalorean, Kerala, Karnataka, Mughlai, Coorg, Bengali and Continental cuisines, and even a health conscious cook, who uses things like flax seeds in her dishes,” reveals Thachery.
    The packaging is made from plant-based fibre, which is microwave safe and decomposable. All dishes come at room temperature with detailed heating instructions. In Bangalore, the focus is on the app, available for Android and iPhone. The site is set to launch on April 6.
