Recently I was thinking of ordering food online and while searching for that, I came across this website foodpanda.in. Foodpanda works by offering a delivery service of food that is available for the wide variety of restaurants through the Foodpanda website which can be done with a few simple clicks. The whole process has been made very simplistic so that you can choose your area, the restaurant of choice or the cuisine, and finally place the order and wait for the delivery.


  1. Good combo never tried this must be good

  2. Nice variation to regular a loo palak

  4. Delicious curry. Love unique combo.

  5. Healthy and tasty curry. Excellent preparation.

  6. Interesting combination. I have never tried spinach with plantain.

  7. Very healthy and quite a different koora.

  8. Are these sweet (super ripe) plantains or the more potato-like one, that are usually on the green side? Either way looks delish!
