Why there is a difference between my bill amount and what was shown on the website / app?

The prices mentioned on the site and app is for reference only. The final bill amount is based on the actual weight of the packed product. To ensure that you get the best quality product, we don’t mess with the size of the meat or fish. You pay for only what you get.

What is the difference between gross weight and net weight?

Gross weight is the amount of product used to get the final output.

For e.g. it takes 800gm of raw White Pomfret to get 500gm of it after processing. The rest is lost in wastage. We don’t charge you for the wastage incurred.

Why is there a difference between the price of local vendors and Licious?

Licious meats are the freshest, most hygienic and tender option available in market. The meat available at other avenues doesn’t qualify even the bare minimum hygiene and safety standards due to how it is sourced, handled, processed and packed. Our meats are selected with utmost care by a team of highly qualified experts. Plus, we don’t charge you for any surrogate wastage. You enjoy a far better value for money at Licious than anywhere else.

Do you charge for the delivery?

A flat delivery charge of Rs.39 (including GST) is applicable on all deliveries.

What is the difference between Lamb, Sheep and Goat?

Lamb is the youngling of a Sheep (less than 1-year- old), while Goat is a separate species altogether. Lambs (and Sheep) have wool on them. Goats aren’t that lucky.

Sheep always follow their shepherd. The shepherd always leads from the front and the sheep nearly always obediently follow. Goats on the other hand are not clannish, so they are bred in individual households and never in a group.

Sheep are fortunate to have sheep dogs to protect them, and their shepherd to lead them to green pastures. Goats find solace in roaming within the vicinity of their master’s den.

There is a distinct difference in taste between the meats of Lamb, Sheep and Goat.

Lamb meat is called just lamb. It’s more tender and juicy than mutton (the meat from Sheep). Sometimes, Goat meat is also called mutton, but there’s a vast difference in taste between Sheep mutton and Goat mutton.

What is fresh meat?

Meat that is sold soon after slaughter is considered fresh meat.

The use of refrigerators in India reached widespread use only in the seventies and eighties, so meat had to be consumed soon after buying it, as one could never store it at a lower temperature.

Even then, after it was cooked, it had to be consumed soon after. Unless it was pickled or had some added preservatives to extend its life.

Your safety is always on the top of our minds. From procurement to delivery, we keep our meat chilled at a temperature range between 0⁰-4⁰ Celsius. Thus, bacteria is kept out of the door and the meat is safe to consume.

Also, the meat’s deterioration minimal till it reaches your stove. This is what we mean by fresh meat (note: not frozen).

As for fish, the fruit of the sea, we at Licious rush it to your door as soon as they land on shore.

Are your meats processed using any antibiotics and growth promoting hormones?

Nope. The only thing we add to our meats is oodles of love and care.

Is the seafood fresh? How can I be sure?

Fish that smells is definitely not fresh. It’s ironic, but fresh fish doesn’t smell fishy. When you smell fish you should remember water flowing freely in the nature. You’ll be able to see it in the fish’s eyes. Licious seafood is always fresh. Once you’ve experienced it, we’re sure you’ll be hooked.

What is the difference between fresh / frozen meat?

A Catch-22 question. Theoretically, frozen meat is any meat which has been held in a frozen atmosphere and whose temperature has dropped below -4⁰ C.

Fresh meat is meat straight from the animal, held in a chill atmosphere below 4⁰ C but above freezing temperature. Also, fresh meat is always ready for consumption right away. You don’t have to thaw it or wait for it to defreeze.

Am I being charged for the wastage too?

If you go to the butcher shop and choose a cut of meat or fish, it’ll be weighed first and the butcher will claim his pound of flesh. And then if you want it scaled or cleaned, the butcher will do that for you, but unfortunately you’ve already paid for that wastage.

The Licious Way is to clean the meat or slice it beforehand by our champion team. You get a product that you don’t see being torn up in front of your eyes after you’ve paid for it.

So, to answer your question, no, you’re not being charged for the wastage.

Is the meat Halal?

Yes. Licious meat is Halal certified.

Do you process Pork and Beef?

Nope. No pork and beef whatsoever.

What is the meaning of Halal and how does it help?

Halal is an Arabic word which means lawful or permitted.

In reference to meat, Halal is the humane process of slaughtering by removing all blood from an animal or bird.

The jugular vein is slit in one sharp motion and all the blood in the animal is allowed to drain out, as the heart continues to pump.

It’s a strict ritual which ensures that the animal doesn’t suffer.

What is the shelf life of Licious meat?

All Licious products will have an expiry date sticker (or best before sticker) which would mention the date before which the product can be consumed.

How does Licious maintain the meat’s freshness?

From procurement to delivery, we have a stringent and robust cold chain in place, which holds our products between 1⁰-4⁰ Celsius. This ensures that the meat is always fresh till it reaches you.

How do I find out the nutritional information about the product?

Fresh meat has standard nutritional information that doesn’t vary much. We have it listed on our website for certain products. If you need exact details about the product, you can write to us at talktous@licious.in.

Is it safe to freeze the meat, and then thaw it and consume?

Safe? Yes. As long as you cook it right after thawing. However, we won’t advice you to freeze it.

At Licious, we take great measures to make sure that the meat you get is always fresh, never frozen. You see, fresh meat loses its tenderness and juiciness when it’s frozen. That’s why we advise you against freezing meat.

What do you mean by ‘Whole Fish’?

The Licious Whole Fish is cleaned of scales, gutted, and washed in cold water. The fish is not cut into steaks, or filleted. It’s ready to cook right away.

What do you mean by ‘Fillets’?

Fillet is the meat of fish without bones. Just plain champion meat.

What do you mean by ‘Steaks’?

A fish steak (also known as fish cutlet) is a cut of fish wherein the cut is made perpendicular to the spine. Depending on the fish it can either be boneless or with bones.

What do you mean by ‘Tenderloin’?

Tenderloin is found in every animal on either side of the backbone, towards the inside of the animal. It is the tenderest part of the animal as it’s never exercised. No fat, no tough muscles, just melt-in- your-mouth goodness.

What is the difference between Whole and Tail-on Prawn?

The Whole Prawn comes with its head, shell and tail.

The Tail-on Prawn comes to you shelled, deveined with its head removed, and with its tail on to give you that tantalizing crunch.

What is used for casing the cold cuts?

We use synthetic casings for our cold cuts to retain their freshness and juicy texture.

Can I get custom cuts?

No.

Let us know what your requirement is. Our catalogue is quite exhaustive. Maybe we have missed something out.

How do I cook the marinades?

You can cook them in a non-stick pan with a dash of oil or you can cook them in a barbeque.

Where and how long can I store the meat?

Refer to the expiry date and store the meat in the refrigerator between 0⁰-4⁰ C.

How long do you store the meat for?

Refer to the expiry date for more information.

Can I store my marinades in the freezer?

Yes, you can. Keep them overnight or for a day in the refrigerator before you cook them again.

Can I fry my marinades?

Yes, you can, but our master chef doesn’t recommend it. Just add a dash of oil in the pan and surrogate.

My marinade tends to burn in the pan.

Lower the flame and sprinkle water into the pan. Keep the pan closed with its lid, so that the moisture is retained.

I have a lot of residue left in the pan. What can I do with it?

Add water (or wine / juice) and warm it up. Keep stirring. Soon you’ll have a tasty sauce cooking up in your pan. This sauce is rich in flavours. You can pour this over your meat or thicken it and serve it along with your dish.

Do I need to mix up the marinade once again?

It will be nice if you can freshen them up by just tossing it around in a pan before you get them on the stove.

Can I cook the marinade in an oven?

Yes, you can. Cook it at 180⁰ C. If your oven supplies heat from only one side, you have to turn the marinades over halfway through the process.

Can I cook the marinade in a microwave?

No, it’s not recommended. Microwaving it will dry out the insides of the meat or fish. That’s not a good eating experience.

Can I cook the marinade in a pressure cooker?

Yes, of course. You don’t need to keep whistling about it though. Let the pressure cooker take care of it. The tempting aromas will carry to the neighbours.
