Tiffin Carrier or Bento?



In Tamilnadu, it is called a tiffin carrier, stack of containers used for packing lunch (typically rice, vegetables, yogurt etc). They are called "dabba" in Bombay and bento in Korea.

I asked my husband to get me one when he was visiting his family in Chennai last week. He got me three!

  2. I love it. It is compact with two stacked containers and a tight lock. It works very nicely for Indian lunches with vegetables and the bread packed separately. It is made of stainless steel, therefore washable, though not microwaveable.
