There is no denying that we Indians love our food more than anything else in the world. We not only love to cook good food but also enjoy ordering food of our choice when hungry. Here is the List of Top 9 Foods Ordered Online via Zomato and Swiggy:
Chicken Biryani: Aha! Chicken biryani rules people's tummy when it comes to ordering food online. At both, Zomato and Swiggy it was the top most ordered food item in 2018. “There was a whopping 681 percent increase in biryani orders (on Swiggy) this year! Third year in a row, India continues its love affair with Chicken Biryani,” shared a Swiggy statement. The delectable-dish remains the most ordered food item all-round the year, as well as a favorite during festivals, lunches, dinners and even during snack time.
Masala Dosa: Who would not love a masala dosa fried in ghee with lots of sambhar and coconut chatni. With Dosa being one of the top pre-ordered items from Swiggy when planning a meal, it has ruled the heart of the Indians. “South Indian meals and mini-meals are some of the top items that Indians eat regularly and hence are planning in advance,” added the statement.
Pizza: In 2018, Zomato users ordered 5 times more from their homes than offices. And to much surprise remains the only International food ordered the most in 2018. Hence, we surely can say that how much we love our pizza pie.
Paneer Butter Masala: This North Indian dish served as a main course remains the top favourite among food connoisseurs at any party. Whether, it is a birthday dinner or a family lunch, it rules the kitchen menu throughout the year. It was one of the top lunch items delivered on Swiggy.
Mutton Biryani: A Hindustani word derived from the Persian language, Biryani became the top loved dish among Indians over the time. According to historian Lizzie Collingham, the modern biryani developed in the royal kitchens of the Mughal Empire (1526–1857), as a confluence of the native spicy rice dishes of India and the Persian pilaf. According to Swiggy release ‘Mutton Biryani’ was the top ordered item during dinner orders.
Dal Makhani: It is no surprise that Punjabi’s love their Dal Makhani more than any other food. Ordered both for dinner and at late night hours, Swiggy and Zomato together received an increase in this dish delivery. “Delhi and Gurgaon took their neighbourhood relationship to the next level by choosing Butter Naan and Dal Makhani as their go-to meal options,” added Swiggy data.
Chicken Fried Rice: On one hand we Indians talk about being fit and healthy but on the other hand we love our fried food more than anything else. Chicken fried rice was one of the top ordered food during dinner, as a snack option and also as a late night hunger pang menu.
Butter Chicken: Being another favourite among North Indians, Butter Chicken topped the list of other major food ordered from the region. “North Indian dishes were the most preferred while ordering in as well as dining out with Zomato Gold,” pointed Zomato release.
Tandoori Chicken: For anyone else who doesn’t prefer gravy or doesn’t want to make their hands dirty while eating, tandoori food is a love. It not only remains among India’s favourite starters ordered online but also topped the list of dinner preference and late night cravings for food lovers throughout the country.
