Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

If you're someone with a job, you know how difficult it is to juggle a full-time career, a social life that is alive, eat right, drink enough water and just be an overall healthy person. The kind of fast paced life we live today does not allow us the time to reminisce about much. Yet, when we have to eat the same 2-minute noodles, pizza and sandwiches daily, the only thing we remember is "maa ke hath ka khana".

So if you've been missing the comfort of a home cooked meal or maa ke hath ka khana, The Desi Bowl Co in Gurugram is here to rescue you with their amazing bowls. They have entirely re-defined the concept of 'khane ka dabba' with the desi, meal-in-a-bowl!

From dal-chawal & aloo to lal maas, seekh kebab & naan

The Desi Bowl Co is trying to bring the desi ghar ka khana as well as fancy Indian food with familiar flavours and a great taste on one platter. From the aam aadmi bowl with its rajma chawal, kurkuri bhindi and achar to the house bowl with tadke wali dal, jeera aloo, rice and cumin curd, they bring the basic home cooked dishes at prices that are extremely reasonable.

A good sized portion of the hunger bowl with rice, a side dish, a main dish, curd, achaar, papad or chutney, would only cost you something between ₹200-₹250, while a big hunger bowl will land you somewhere between ₹290-₹350.

With options such as mutton bowl served with lal maas, mutton kebab, naan, rice, ker sangri and chili chutney or the Rajnikanth bowl served with chettinad chicken, chicken 65, lotus stem and coconut rice, it’s a great deal for sure!

We are bowl-ed away!

The idea of getting a full meal for a single person's consumption, along with all the accoutrements and the sides is quite pleasing. Add to that the amazing quality and taste of food; you get a better take-away or delivery option than anything you've had.

We would highly recommend the bowls for those who want to order food but don't want to deal with the quantity, or are with a friend and the two want completely different things.

Eat away people!
