Grocery shopping is treated as a ritual in all Indian families. Hurrying to the Thursday Sabzi Market with two huge bags has become routine for most of us. In a conservative country like India, it is often difficult to convince your mother to resort to online shopping, but in these testing times, one has to look for other alternatives. Here are the top online grocery apps for you to stay at home and order online.
1. Big Basket
When Shah Rukh Khan asks India to trust him, India trusts him. Big Basket has emerged to be the most successful and popular online grocery delivery application in India.

Through the app you can order fresh fruits, vegetables and even dairy products.
A relatively smaller application, compared to Big Basket, Dunzo has a made a name for itself in the market. The all in one delivery app allows you to not only order groceries but medicines and food. Dunzo even has facilities that allow you to deliver objects from one place to another. If your friend in the other part of town has a masala from your homeland, just ask her to send it through Dunzo. While the app is extremely useful, it is restricted only to 6 major metropolitan cities in India. Hopefully, with time, even smaller towns and villages will be able to make use of this application.
