Although biryani is the most popular dish in India, Indians are far from cutting down on fast foods, suggest new data from online food delivery platform Swiggy, which is completing five years this week.

Higher intake of fast food is often linked to rise in obesity.

Subway, Domino’s Pizza, McDonald’s and Burger King clocked the highest number of orders in five years, said Swiggy, which has entered over 290 cities since launch in 2014.

Swiggy revealed the biryani order rate stood at 43 per minute, followed by dosa and burgers in the list of most ordered dishes on Swiggy. Among desserts, gulab jamun topped the order chart with rasmali at a distant second.

The data also revealed a surprise and showed coffee, not tea, was the go-to drink for most Swiggy clients.

The demand for vegetarian foods is also on the rise with most cities having close to double vegetarian orders over non-vegetarian items, according to the data with “pure veg” being the most popular filter on the app.

From Gujarat’s Himmatnagar to Assam’s Jorhat, food delivery platform Swiggy has expanded its services to 500 cities in India, matching rival Zomato’s reach in the country.

Unveiling its plan on Monday, Swiggy, which has added 60,000 new restaurants in the past six months, said it would expand to 600 cities by December 2019.

“With presence in 500 cities and 75 universities, Swiggy already has the widest reach in the country. We will further expand this to 600 cities and 200 universities by December 2019,” Swiggy’s Chief Operating Officer Vivek Sunder said in a statement.

Swiggy has progressed from launching in one city every two months in early 2018 to launching in four cities a day in the month of September.
