Q: How long can products be refrigerated after opening?

Q: How long can I freeze the refrigerated entrees for?

A: You can freeze entrees for up to 3 months past the expiration date. Once you defrost, consume the product within 3 days.

Q: If I freeze the refrigerated entrees, how do I properly thaw and heat the entree?

A: Thaw the product in the fridge overnight. Once it has defrosted, you can heat it in the microwave by emptying contents into a microwave safe container.

  2. Stir, and heat for another 1 minute.
  3. Let cool 1 minute and stir again before serving.
  4. For two pouches, add another minute to the cooking process each time (first 3 minutes, and then 2 minutes).

Q: Where is the product manufactured?

A:  We proudly produce and pack in the USA.

Q: Where can I find serving suggestions?

A:  Please see serving suggestions on the back of each package.

Q: What does all-natural mean?

A:  All-Natural means that our products contain No Artificial Ingredients and are Minimally Processed. Minimally processed means we use traditional techniques when making our products like you would at home.

Q: What does No Antibiotics mean?

A:  Most animals are raised using antibiotics, i.e. medications used to prevent and control illnesses. Chickens that are raised without the use of antibiotics means that natural alternatives to antibiotic treatments are used to control illness. In order to have this statement on a label, we need to provide to the USDA proof that our chicken was raised without the use of antibiotics. Products that contain “no antibiotics” will be labeled as such or as “organic”. All organic meat is raised without the use of antibiotics, but not all non-antibiotic meat is organic.

Q: What does Halal mean? Is your product Halal?

A:  Halal represents a special way to slaughter the animal, the name coming from Arabic meaning “according to religious Law.”
A:  Yes, most of our items are certified Halal.

Q: Do you have any vegan or vegetarian options?

A:  Yes, both our Lemon Rice and Roasted Tomato Curry are vegan and vegetarian. We also have ready-to-cook with curry sauces available that are vegan and vegetarian.

Q: Are your animals treated humanely?

A:  We carefully source our meat from U.S. farms that share our commitment to food safety, sustainability, and humane treatment –allowing the animals to enjoy normal behavior.

Q: Where do you source your meat?

A:  All our chicken is from USDA inspected facilities in the USA. We do not import any meats from overseas.

Q: Do you have Nuts or Eggs in your products/plants?

A:  Yes, certain products do contain nuts or eggs. Please refer to each individual item to see allergens. 

Packaging:

Due to unexpected supply chain challenges recently, we will be using plastic trays again on our Costco items. This will be temporary, and we plan to be back in our compostable, plant-based fiber trays as soon as we can. Please check back here for the latest updates.

Q: Why did we switch from plastic to fiber food trays?

A:  Sukhi’s Gourmet Indian Foods is making efforts to be more sustainable and that starts with using eco-friendly packaging, such as the compostable fiber-made trays used in our Refrigerated Entrees line.  

Q: What is the fiber tray made of?

A:  The fiber trays are made from renewable plants like bamboo, sugarcane bagasse, wheat, and straw. They are designed to be compostable, and hence, biodegradable.

Q: How do I compost the fiber tray?

A:  You can compost the fiber tray as you compost any food scraps and other biodegradable materials in a compost bin in your yard or garden. The trays will be returned to the soil through composting.

Q: Can I microwave the tray?

A:  Yes, the tray is microwave safe up to 5 minutes on high (based on 1200W microwave).

Q: Can I freeze the tray?

A:  Yes, the tray is freezer safe. Our entrees can be frozen for up to 3 months.

Q: Can I use the tray in the oven?

A:  We do not advise the use of the fiber trays in conventional or toaster ovens as this is a paper-based product.
