Since the heat outside can often impact your desire to eat something hot as easily as it does your desire to stand in a hot kitchen, you might want to consider ordering one or more of the following examples of cold or room temperature Indian food delivery.

#1-Curd Rice

Curd rice is a well-known Indian meal that is created by combining rice that has been cooked with yogurt, but there are many variations that can provide an extra kick of flavor to what can be perceived as a relatively bland food to some persons. For instance, you might see that some restaurants boil the rice down to a thick substance, that after cooling to room temperature, is dressed up with ginger, curry leaves, and other commonly used Indian spices.

Curd rice is often served at the end of the meal and is frequently used to calm the digestive system after a spicy meal.

#2-Pani Puri

Pani Puri can is a relatively complicated meal that begins with an unsweetened flat or round pastry that has been fried and then permitted to cool. When it is at the right temperature, it's usually stuffed with a mixture of potatoes, two types of chutney, and chickpeas that have been seasoned with items like cumin seed or coriander leaves.

Although Pani Puri is often purchased from food trucks as a quick snack in parts of India, it's also quite good as a meal.


Dhokla is popular for breakfast, snacks, or the evening meal and starts with rice and chickpeas that form a batter. That mixture can be flavored with chili pepper and ginger, as well as the leavening agent baking soda before being steamed.

Upon request, the Indian restaurant can often add green chilies, sugar, or cumin seeds to the food before accessorizing the top with grated coconut. It's not unusual to receive Dhokla served with thoroughly fried chilies and chutney. This meal presents with a texture that is much like cake.

In lieu of forcing yourself to do something you don't really want to do and then worry if anyone will eat that hot food when it so warm outside, it's best to be aware of the above examples of cold Indian food that can be delivered in many areas.
