Homemade Indian food delivery/pick-up options

NYC or the Bay Area have lots of Indian women/men who make homemade Indian meals for delivery or pick-up on a daily or weekly. basis.

I haven't been able to find anything like that in Chicago. Anybody know what I'm talking about? Any recommendations?

  1. I've never heard of something like that around here. I believe Chicago health codes require foods to be finished in a commercial kitchen, so unless the people were renting kitchen space somewhere, I'm not sure how they would get away with it.

      Not that I'm aware of. There are numerous Tiffin delivery sites online but not for Chicago.

    2. I have also been looking for something this in Chicago after having a weekly delivery in SF so I am bumping this up. Thanks.

        You're bumping up a topic that was started earlier today? This forum doesn't move fast enough for that to be necessary, LOL!

        BTW, for another alternative for Indian food with delivery, you can search by address and type of food on

      2. I can cook indian meals for delivery based on the location on weekly basis. If you are interested please let me know. We can discuss and plan the menu and I can deliver or it can be picked up aswell.

          What area would a pickup location be? And what would you say are some of your specialties?

            I am looking for homemade whole veg meal (no eggs, no meat) for 2 adults on daily basis preferably delivered at home near Montrose brown line.
            Please give contact details.

          2. Luzzat up in Rogers Park makes homemade-quality Indian/Pakistani food for reasonable prices. No delivery, but you can pick it up.

            For the longest time it was just one woman doing everything, but now she has a few helpers taking orders and whatnot. I recommend ordering only when you have a reasonable amount of time to wait, since she still does most of the cooking all by herself.

            (Note: The place is so tiny that it is hard to eat without being affected by the other customers - so PLEASE, be considerate and don't bring your screaming children (or obnoxious friends for that matter.)
