How should I store and reheat my food?
All foods can be stored in the refrigerator with their original packaging (containers, foils, etc.). Rotis, parathas, etc. should be properly covered to prevent them from becoming hard.
Reheating: All our containers are microwave-safe and can be reheated in either the plastic container it is packed in or any microwave-safe dish.
Rotis can be reheated on a gas oven-range for about 10 seconds on each side (medium flame) or for about 20 seconds in the microwave.
Will my food be safe during transit?
Absolutely. All meals are packaged and shipped in a temperature-controlled environment that keeps them cold and safe for the entire trip.

Deliveries are made through UPS, so however you normally receive packages through their service is how you will receive your food.

What is your cooking style and "high quality" ingredients?
The answer to this is very simple. We make sure that our North Indian dishes taste like North Indian dishes, our South Indian dishes like South Indian dishes, our Gujarati dishes...you get the idea :). Our cooking style does justice to the origins of the dish without the use of heavy oils, fats or additives.
We use the freshest vegetables, pure high quality spices, fresh un-canned legumes, whole wheat flour, and so forth.
None of the following are ever used: Food colors, MSG, preservatives, stabilizers, thickening agents, corn syrup, trans fats, artificial flavorings, hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils (very common in restaurant food).
Lastly, our highest quality ingredient is our kitchen staff-- who understand how to prepare healthy and delicious home-made style food.
