New Delhi: The COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdown saw many people turning chefs overnight, but those who could not turned to online delivery of food. And not just any food, as per a new report, Indians ‘craved the most for Biryani’ during the lockdown.

The ‘StatEATistics report: The Quarantine Edition’ from food delivery platform Swiggy found that Indians ordered biryani over ‘5.5 lakh times’ from their favourite restaurants.

The new normal might have opened a pandora’s box of behavioural changes, but some old habits die hard like the love for Biryani, which took the top spot for overall orders. It was followed by butter naan and masala dosa at 3,35,185 and 3,31,423, respectively.

Biryani has topped the list of most ordered dishes for the fourth year in a row, the food delivery platform noted.

Indians didn’t forget to indulge their sweet tooth in the uncertain months of lockdown. Their favourite comfort food during the lockdown period was the moist and decadent Choco Lava cake, ordered around 1,29,000 times.

“The humble Gulab Jamun (84,558) and chic Butterscotch Mousse cake (27,317) followed suit,” said the report derived from Swiggy’s order analysis in the past few months across cities that it is present in.
