De Dabba

Presenting a lunch-time favourite. The classic Indian three-tiered tiffin box or dabba. Used by office-goers and school-not-so-goers all over the country to have full meals from 1 to 2 every day (except weekends when the quantity is much more). The dabba comes with separate compartments to carry different types of food in. Chapattis in one, sabji in another, rice in one, dal in another, and so on and on and on, depending on the number of tiers you have been blessed with. All made at home with a lot of love and the warmth still there when you open it at 1. Sigh. Also, read about the Mumbai dabbawallas here – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dabbawala and http://www.mumbaidabbawala.org/

Yak it.
