Key Findings

We picked four of the most popular and widely available brands and tested their palak paneer offering. We also conducted a taste test. The brands we tested were Aashirvaad Ready Meals Palak Paneer, MTR Tasty Delights Palak Paneer, Gits Ready Meals Palak Paneer and Haldiram’s Minute Khana Dilli Style Palak Paneer.

What we found

  • Fat content varied widely across brands with some having more than twice the amount of fat as others. Scoring the worst on the fat scale was Haldiram’s product which was 18.3% fat translating to 27g per serving. ‘The RDA of fat for adults is 65g per day. If one serving of ready-to-eat palak paneer contains 27g of fat, it means one dish in the entire meal will be providing 41% of the total daily requirement.
  • In contrast, the MTR product had the least amount of fat at 8.2%. But this doesn’t mean that one brand is necessarily healthier than the other – while Haldiram’s was high in fat it was also the lowest in salt content. Similarly, MTR’s lower fat content was tainted by the amount of salt it contained – almost 600mg per 100g.

Restrict consumption of ready-to-eat meal packs that contain high amounts of fat. Even with regard to sodium, the product is unsuitable for cardiac-affected, diabetic and hypertensive patients.
