For food lovers: Biryani was ordered online more than once every second in India
As contactless food became the norm in the pandemic-hit year, online delivery platform Swiggy on Tuesday said that some form of biryani was ordered more than once every second while home-cooked food was one of the most ferried items in 2020.
The chicken biryani reaffirmed its place as India's favourite dish. For every veg biryani, there were six chicken biryani orders.
Over 3 lakh new users made their Swiggy debut by ordering in a chicken biryani, according to the data from fifth edition of Swingy's annual 'StatEATstics' analysis.
"While we delivered 5 times as many orders to 'Home' addresses compared to 'Work' addresses between January and March, that number rose to 9 times as many Home orders vs. Work orders in April and May," the report mentioned.
Missing office cappuccinos and masala chais while working from home, lakhs of hardworking users ordered varieties of tea and coffee from the online food delivery website.
While users in the National Capital Region (NCR) ordered the healthiest meals, Bangaloreans showed a high resolve to get healthy. At 130 per cent, the city saw the highest increase in healthy food orders on Swiggy HealthHub.
