    With their high protein meals finding takers, Pickled Pumpkin’s founders share future plans

    After their regular meal, which focussed on balance and portion control, food delivery company, Pickled Pumpkin has now added a High Protein Meal to their menu. “Food has been an integral part of my family. Since we have stayed in different countries, my sister and I realised the complexities of having a nutritious diet. With Pickled Pumpkin we want to give our customers a tasty meal which makes regular eating healthy,” shares the city-based co-founder, Soumya Skandan who tells us to expect home-cooked food rich in protein.

    Alternating between marinades, the weekly set menu has 300 grams of grilled protein (chicken, fish, paneer and tofu), with a side of grilled vegetables. “Based on their requirement, clients choose their protein and we give a variety of marinades— barbeque, tandoor, herb—every week,” Skandan says, adding that every meal packed at Pickled Pumpkin is vetted by professional nutritionists.
    The newly planned protein menu is reviewed by city-based sports nutritionist, Shiny Surendran (who also helped with Reel Cafe’s keto menu launched two months back) to ensure the meals are balanced and rightly portioned.

    Skandan, who has earlier worked with NGOs for public health projects, also says, “We are experimenting with stews and quiches which can be low in carbohydrates and people find it more comfortable to consume them.” This New Year, they are planning on starting  their on-the-go breakfast meal. “Since smoothie bowls are a Western concept, we are planning to provide a version favouring the Indian taste. We like our breakfast hot, so we want  to give a mix of both. It will be an energy rich meal and a perfect jump start for the day,” she concludes.
    Rs 250 onwards. Orders for lunch to be placed before 8 pm the previous day and 2 pm for dinner, the same day. Details: 8939825437
