Sweet Karam Coffee

This all-veg tiffin service is made for the homesick, working professional who lives away from family and misses home food. Their breakfast, lunch, and dinner subscriptions have to be bought separately on their website and include a thali shaped meal with rice, sambhar, rasam, kootu, and buttermilk. They’ve also got optional extras like traditional snacks and sweets that you can add on to that day’s order, like mullu murku, mixture, and athirasam. They’re quite cheap too, with a three-day subscription setting you back just by INR 345. The longer durations are priced the same as well, with a 30-day subscription costing INR 3,450.

MC's Lunchbox

MC’s Lunchbox is our second favourite on this list thanks to the variety of dishes it has. From aloo parathas and butter for breakfast to a millet-based bisibelle bath for lunch and uthapams for dinner. They cater to North and South Indian pallets and offer different sized lunch boxes categorised based on the type of cuisine (North or South). Furthermore, each cuisine has a separate weekly meal plan that ensures each day’s meals will not be the same as the next. Price wise they’re priced around the same as Sweet Karam Coffee and can be customised to include more sides based on your choice.

Aapka Annapurna

The top spot on this list belongs to Aapka Annapurna because it is the only online tiffin service in Chennai that offers vegetarian and non-vegetarian food! Their aim is to make all their food taste like ghar ka khana or veedu saapadu. To that end, they ensure their preparations are fresh and non-greasy. Their menu has more than 40 items, ranging from baingan ka bartha to egg podimas. They’ve also got your kinds of rice, like biriyanis and pulaos, along with parathas, pooris, and even khichdi. Each dish has a specific price tag and can be added to your custom meal plan, additionally if you want to switch things up (and keep costs low) you can opt for their combo options.
