Happy Social Media Day!
Through Social Media including blogs, Instagram, Twitter etc, I’ve been making so many friends from all over the world. Some become one of my best friends and one day I want to meet them face to face.
Also Social Media is getting to the place where business and potential customers meet for the first time. Proper Good is one of them. They found me on Instagram and ever since I tried their soup, I have learned a lot about their products and the company itself.
They sent me other packs of new products a few years ago, so I want to share my thoughts today. For curry lovers, fasten your seatbelt! Today’s products are one of the most popular Indian curry, Dahl and Basmati rice to go with it!

I kinda knew they would soon release curry products after a few months of trying their products because Proper Good is a soup company, and curry is one of the most loved “soups” from people in the world. So when I got news that new curry products are released, I was so excited.
First, let’s start the review of Golden Lentil Dahl.
I take dahl is one of the most popular curry dishes from Indian cuisine, but we usually get Tikka Masala at restaurants so having dahl at home under this still-restriction-going-on was an amazing experience.
When I took a first bite, my nostrils caught the aroma of coconut milk and a spice flavor from cumin hit my tongue. The taste itself is very soft, so even toddlers can enjoy them without having a fire in their mouth. For adults who are especially spicy food lovers, be prepared to add seasoning and spices to adjust the taste.
The texture of dahl was perfect. Both lentils and curry broth were soft and creamy, with a silky touch to my tastebuds like velvet. They have potatoes in it, so it’s a good filling too. It contains 12 oz and it was enough for both of us to be well fed for lunch.
Since they’re using coconut milk to make it a plant based food, to me I thought it’s a fusion food of Thai and Indian curry. Or is it just me who has never had Indian curry using coconut milk?
Pro: Mild, innovative flavor of Indian curry made with coconut milk. Colorful and cute package. Feeds 2 adults with a single package.
Con: For spicy food adults, flavor needs to be adjusted.
Next, let’s talk about basmati rice. Growing up by eating medium grain Japanese rice, I’m not really familiar with basmati rice actually. Indian curry is more like soupy unlike the thick, stew like Japanese curry, so drier and nonstick basmati rice goes well with that dahl to pair with. The basmati rice was simply flavored with a little sprinkles of sea salt, and instead of plain rice I’m used to, the flavor is more like blooming when it goes with the curry.
Pro: Goes well with curry with just right flavor from sea salt.
Con: The package on the back side needs to be fixed haha! Like all other soups, it recommended a way to heat up in a pan, but I’m sure it’s end up sticking into the pan, not fluffy, and never gonna be “bubbling” as it says.
The best feature of Proper Good company is that they’re seeking to provide food that has a long shelf life, allergen free/specific diet, and contributes to our society. They donate one meal for every post tagged with @eatpropergood, so hopefully my posts on other social media platforms would help someone in the world. Thank you so much Proper Good for gifting me amazing products. Please make tikka masala soon, my ultimate favorite Indian curry!
