Thanks to online food delivery apps in our mobile phones, in just a click our favorite cuisine,  whether it's Chinese, Continental, Italian or simply Desi, is right in front of our table. But according to one of India's most successful online food delivery apps, Swiggy, India still likes to go by its traditional menu at any time of the day. The results of 'Swiggy India Statistics 2017', a food order analysis carried out by the company, revealed that when it comes to breakfast we Indian's loved to keep it simple and the region you belong to also influences the food choice you make. While Delhiites loved their Chole bhature, Mumbaikars ordered Bun Maska and Bengaluru and Chennai preferred Masala dosa and Idli-vada respectively. When it came to the most ordered food, Indians again stuck to their roots with Biriyani.

Pizza was the most searched item followed by Burgers, Chicken, Cakes and Momos.

For dinner, Indians preferred  non-veg Biriyanis followed by Paneer Butter Masala, Masala Dosa, Dal Makhani, and Chicken Fried Rice.

The survey was carried out across 7 major cities - Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Bengaluru, Kolkata and Hyderabad. Finally when it came to desserts, Gulab Jamun and Rasmalai were favored more than chocolate puddings and among Ice Creams, Death By Chocolate topped the pick.

Swiggy, the Bangalore based startup proved that they had struck a chord with customers by crossing the 5 million order mark in December 2017, way ahead of its competitor Zomato.
