    We all know that it’s sometimes hard to eat healthy, home-style meals. But with work and social engagements, it’s tough to find the time to cook up these wholesome meals. OK, we said no time, but we also mean no skill, or inclination for that matter! Enter delivery services that know just how to make rajma-chawal  like Mum, or kadhi-chawal  like your grandma or even that chicken dhansak that your neighbour used to make perfectly! From simple meals to more elaborate yet healthy, order away without piling on the unhealthy calories!

    COVID-19 Tip: All the below eateries deliver to COVID-19 positive home-quarantined patients with specially curated meal options that are healthy, wholesome and filling. Their details have been added below. 

    Homely

    A crowd favourite on Swiggy, this one is all about bringing back the taste of home. In fact, the name itself is Homely so it really can’t get more…well…homely. They have combos, specials and single dishes for you to mix and match. But we suggest sticking to combos. They offer rather elaborate ones like Chicken Dhansak with yellow moong dal, rice and rotis, egg curry, palak paneer, and even beans-carrot subzi, if dhansak isn’t your think. Not up for a meal? Pick from curd rice, rajma-chawal or pav bhaji. Vegetarians, try their brown rice with channa masala, and meat eaters, we hear the Kerala fish curry is ace! The menu changes regularly with vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. 

    Bhavesh Tiffin Service

    Bhavesh is LBB’s go-to tiffin guy for wholesome North Indian staples of dal-roti-sabzi. Servicing primarily Indiranagar and Domlur, his dabba service for lunch and dinner (he serves them in those old-school steel dabbas) is vegetarian only. Roti, rice, dal, one dry/semi-dry curry, pappad, and buttermilk are what’s in store. Priced at INR 90, we can tell you that without the rice itself, the dabba is quite filling. And oh, rotis come generously spread with ghee (yass!). 

    Mom's Food

They have plans like the 5 Meal Plan at INR 550 which includes an option of lunch or dinner.

Their meals come in paneer, chicken and vegetarian options and consist of preferred options of protein/veggie, dal, rice, two rotis and salad(four rotis can be sent instead of rice as well). Deliveries within HSR Layout can be sponsored by Mom’s Food whereas those without have to pay for additional delivery charges.
