      Hi Chandrika,

      Always remember you can add 1-2 glasses of water depending upon the quantity of moong. It sould be just above the level of the sprouted moong in the bowl.

    Are you thinking of taking away a particular food of your choice from a restaurant with the intention of enjoying it at some other place of your liking? There are many such Indian take away restaurants that are fully dedicated to the cause of serving varied cuisines to its customers. But you should take many aspects of these restaurants in consideration before you settle for one of them. If you follow some tips, you can enjoy the food even more with your friends and family.

    The first aspect that you should consider is that such a restaurant should be near your home. The restaurant should also be running the deliver service so that you can order the food right at your home if you do not want to go out of home.

    Take a good look at the quality of the service of the Indian take away restaurants. Pay attention to their attitude when you make a phone call to them while placing an order for an Indian food of your choice. The restaurant should have a good knowledge of the area where you live. Any restaurant that is situated very far from your home means that you will be served the food very late.

    Make sure that the restaurant of your choice is known for its professional packaging of the Indian cuisines. There are some packaging-materials that are not considered hygienic for packing of hot food as such a material may cause diseases and may be allergic as well. The restaurants should be aware of the latest technology and research in the field of packaging of food. Ensure that the food you take away or receive at your home is hot and fresh.

    Make sure that the Indian take away restaurant of your choice is known for its professional cooking, implying that it uses only authentic Indian ingredients and spices. Do not opt for those restaurants that have a dubious reputation for cooking methods and too much experimentation as you may end up tasting a different dish than what you were waiting for.

    You should also find out if the Indian take away restaurants in your locality are flexible in taking the payments or not. We suggest that you first ask the restaurant about the methods of payment before you place an order for food. Some of them do not take the payment in cheque. In that case, you may feel embarrassed when you bring the cheque and the delivery boy refuges to take it.

    Place an order only after going through the details provided by the restaurant in its website. Have a good look at the menu and read all the information in the site pages. A good Indian take away restaurant can be identified also by serious presentation of its cosines and details about its cooking methods as well as services.
