REHEATING INSTRUCTIONS

SAFETY

All our food is cooked and simply needs to be reheated at the correct temperature. Read our recommended safety guidelines for reheating instructions. 

 

We highly recommend following the Virginia Department of Health’s Food Safety Basics for Re-Heating, Storing, and Freezing recommendations. 

Re-Heating Instructions

  • All Sabzis (curries), rice and soups can be reheated in stove-top or micro-wave at desired temperatures. (See VDH Food Safety Basics for recommended temperatures).
  • Reheat all bread items – roti, thepla, naan, etc wrapped in slightly wet towel in microwave for 15 – 20 seconds.
  • Please do not reheat any items in the plastic containers provided.

 

REFRIGERATION & Freezing

Our food can be safely refrigerated and can have a shelf life of 3 – 5 days when correctly refrigerated. The ideal refrigeration temperature is 35 – 38 degrees. 

 

For longer shelf life, we highly recommend freezing the food containers. If you do refrigerate, the best way to defrost them is to leave them in the refrigerator overnight and then re-heat following the instructions above.
