In­dian fu­sion cater­ing com­pany of­fers same-day home de­liv­ery

Austin American-Statesman - - FOOD & LIFE - — Ad­die Broyles

Some nights, es­pe­cially dur­ing the work week, you just don’t feel like cook­ing.

Eat­ing out is al­ways an op­tion, but Cur­ries by De­sign, a lo­cal cater­ing and meal de­liv­ery ser­vice com­pany, al­lows you to or­der In­dian fu­sion meals for same-day de­liv­ery dur­ing the first half of the week. Owner Aparna Nayani says that as long as you or­der on­line by noon on Mon­day, Tues­day or Wed­nes­day, one of her staff will de­liver your or­der be­tween 6 and 9 p.m. the same day. (De­liv­ery to just about any­where in Cen­tral Texas is free for or­ders of more than $40.)

Nayani, who first started to cook as a teenager liv­ing in Hous­ton, says the menu is dif­fer­ent each week be­cause she’s al­ways com­ing up with new dishes like tikka pa­neer que­sadil­las, spicy cre­ole pasta and ke­bab-in­spired slid­ers and meat­balls to serve along­side tra­di­tional fare in­clud­ing samosas, cur­ries, ko­rma and keema. “I take world cui­sine and try to in­cor­po­rate In­dian fla­vors into it,” she says. “It’s a never-end­ing process.”

Dur­ing the sec­ond half of the week and week­ends, Cur­ries by De­sign switches gears into cater­ing mode, pre­par­ing food for cor­po­rate events and wed­dings, and in a few weeks, the com­pany is launch­ing “Lap of Lux­ury,” a line of cook­ies that will fea­ture fla­vors in­clud­ing masala chai, rose pis­ta­chio and saf­fron car­damom.
