It’s BACK! Now the restaurants have been able to re-open and settle in, we are so happy to be able FINALLY bring back our vegetarian curry box selection! This will be running on limited numbers so order now to avoid disappointment.

A selection of 8 traditional vegetarian dishes including pulao and bread from Aktar Islam. Each fortnight Aktar develops a unique menu, depending on produce available as quality is the key. The template stays the same with a selection of curries from across all of India and menus are published fortnightly.

We don’t use any of the artificial additives, flavourings, colours that are normally associated with mainstream curry restaurants and takeaways as all of our recipes are based around traditional home cooking, this also means that we don’t use the large amounts of oil and ghee that is part of the commercial curry house process.

Offering value is important to us. A curry box is enough for a very generous banquet for four, several meals for two, or a whole week of dinners for one. Each curry tends to be portioned between 400g and 600g, each box contains several meals and designed to be eaten over several sittings. The boxes are very generous and everything is suitable  for freezing so you can enjoy them at your choosing.

Demand for our Weekly Curry Boxes has been amazing and we often find that we sadly are selling out on the weekend prior to the delivery. Luckily, you can now also order for further weeks in advance by selecting your delivery or collection date to avoid disappointment.

Reheating Instructions

  • Most curries are prepared to be reheated quickly in a pan ready to serve. Some dishes may require reheating in the oven but at most we expect nothing longer than 20 minutes for any part of these curry dishes.
  • Occasionally we release special menus that will require more time for cooking as you will be dealing with raw produce.
  • All pre-cooked curries are suitable for freezing and they reheat amazingly well.

Allergies

  • None of the dishes are suitable for any onion, garlic or tomato allergies.
  • Dishes containing gluten (G), nuts (N), dairy (D) or suitable for vegetarians (V) are marked on the menu.
  • We are unable to alter or swap dishes for dietary requirements but hope the selection would be sufficient for all.  As our menus & recipes are confirmed closer to the date depending on availability we may not always be able to guarantee allergens until the week of production. Please check this page a week before to see what menu you will be receiving, the menu is also published on the @aktarathome Instagram feed.

Menus

Please note that items on the menu can change due to supplier issues and availability. Visit the website for up do date information on the weeks upcoming menu.

 

Correspondence

We feel it necessary, unfortunately, to remind our guests that we still remain a small independent business in Birmingham and communication with us is sadly limited to e-mail via aktar@aktarathome.co.uk. We do strive to reply to all e-mails as quickly as we can but we feel it prudent to note that we do not outsource any of our production to larger companies & insist on cooking and preparing ourselves so as to maintain the quality of our dishes. As a result, we may not be able to immediately respond and note that during service hours our team are held within a restaurant service but strive to reply after our last guests have left.

    I sent this box to my cousin and her partner for the birth of their first son, to help out a bit with some home-style cooked food as they love good food, but have no time to make it and prefer not to eat out because of additives and overly oily dishes. I found an amazing review for this box on the guardian, and chose it both for the taste but also for the health factor.
    They are over the moon with it! They both wrote that it is extremely delicious, and probably the best Indian food they ever had. Being Indian cuisine aficionados; that means something!!!!

    Thank you very very much! I really wanted this to be a great experience for them and this surpassed my expectations!!!! I am already considering repeating this in two or three weeks as the menus change (and also – 8 curries is a lot of variety!!!)

    We have now had three boxes delivered thus far and all have been absolutely fabulous! The portions are both generous and truly delicious. So far there hasn’t been a single dish that hasn’t been really tasty. We are about to order another!
