High quality does not mean very tasty at Dhaniyas and that’s where it all starts. We use fresh and local produce when and where possible. We partner with local farms to source whats in season and grow some ourselves. We use whole ingredients like fresh sprouted beans and legumes, whole garam masala.
Preservatives, MSG, trans fat, artificial flavoring, food colors, stabilizers, thickening agents, corn syrup, hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats will NEVER be used in our kitchen.
Above all is our cooks with high ethical standards and trained on alternative techniques to minimize the use of excess fats and stick to whole ingredients, that are beneficial to our body by taking the extra effort and time to cook.
Home style food is something that offers nutrition and a well-balanced meal for the week. We tend to use less than 50% oil compared to restaurants and mildly cook vegetables to retain their benefits. I would agree restaurant, packed and frozen food does taste good in most cases, but the heavy flavors and fats creates an aversion to eating it often and will certainly cause health concerns in the long run.
We strive to serve mild but authentic flavors, that you can eat everyday all through the year without the fear of getting unhealthy. Also we collect family traditional recipes and try them out just like you would in your house (We try it in small scale on ourselves before offering on the menu).

Dhaniya’s is proud to say that all of our food is prepared from scratch on Saturday night and delivered Sunday. But once the food is cooked we will cool it down to a safe temperature first and then pack them into individual containers. These packages will be stored at 37degree F,refrigerator temperature (We do not freeze or add any preservatives) throughout the delivery schedule to stay fresh and safe to consume per the FDA compliance.
Yes, it will stay fresh. But in some cases due to certain ingredients we will state a earlier best by date, to help you plan what needs to be finished earlier than later.
Proper refrigeration is required to ensure food stays fresh, and for any reason you do not think a certain dish is fresh, throw it away and let us know immediately.
Yes, you can and the container we deliver is freezer safe. But we recommend you only do this in exceptional instances, as we do not believe that frozen foods contain the nutrition our bodies deserve.
Store the food in a refrigerator immediately upon delivery. Certain dry foods like chapatis and parathas should be stored in refrigerator as well, but in a well sealed container. The original packaging the food is delivered is appropriately selected to maintain freshness, so keep it stored in them. Even certain pickles are made with less oil and not for long shelf life, so we recommend you store in a refrigerator and consume them during the week.
Reheating the food is a breeze with our microwave safe containers. We would still recommend you to reheat on a stove top with a pan. For curries, please add some water to bring them to a consistency you like, and also add extra salt to your preference.
Chapatis and parathas are best when reheated on a griddle, for about 15 seconds on each side.
