Delightful Quest: The Finest Frozen Tikka in Pakistan’s Culinary Scene
Written By Store Hopper
I am a staff writer and have visited countless grocery stores numerous times; whatever I need, I know exactly where to get it from! I am a superhero - I identify value for money in any grocery list.
Food is a crucial part of our lives, without a doubt. It is something that we need to survive, but it is also simply so much more than that. Food is a source of comfort, a gesture to show love, and a chance to enjoy some of life’s simple pleasures. Pleasure and memories that stay with us all life long.
For many people, tikka is the perfect food. It is simple yet so full of flavor. There is nothing quite like the smell of meat cooking on the grill, and the taste of those first few bites is truly unforgettable. Whether someone is a healthy freak on a diet or just a lover of smokey, greasy meat, tikka has it all sorted out for everyone.
However, the long work hours and competitive lives have left us no time to marinate our meat for hours and get grilled, atleast I do not have that time or energy. Does not mean, I, a food lover, have to compromise. No, no! I am here in quest of only the sauciest, juiciest, and the most tender frozen tikka to curb all my meaty, saucy needs.
The Sauciest, Juiciest Tikka
With multiple brands offering tikka in great variety, cuts, and flavors; I did get confused strolling from one lane to another at the grocery store in the frozen section. So I picked, tried and made a list of my top favorite frozen tikka available in the market. I also ranked the following based on variants available, additives information, packaging options, and availability.
Sabroso tikka comes in 3 variants including shahi tikka, chicken leg tikka, and trendilicious chicken breast. It has no additives. It is not widely available.
Menu provides 2 different offerings in tikka; tikka bites and chicken leg tikka. Although both variants are widely available, these have additives.
K&N’s Mughlai Tikka
K&N’s is widely available, and is free from preservatives. It is packed with a smokey, tender tikka flavor.
Monsalwa Tikka Boti
This well-seasoned, delicious tikka boti is sadly not widely available and does contain preservatives.
Bigbird BBQ tikka
Bigbird provides no information about additives and is not widely available, too. It does not provide different chicken cuts.
Menu Rajasthani Boti
Menu Rajasthani boti is a tender, yet juiciest boti out of these and not including it on my list felt almost like a crime. Although not widely available, these are a must to try.
Variatiants: Tikka Boti, leg tikka,
