Who does not like home-made food? In today’s day and age of processed foods, with added preservatives that might be harmful to health, getting authentic home-made food is a boon. There is a world of opportunity for entrepreneurs and business folks alike, in the food market. If you are someone who enjoys preparing food items at home, or are good at sourcing them, this blog lists down some home-made food items that you can sell online.

Pickles: Pickles have a unique flavour that enhances the taste of any meal, no matter how bland it otherwise may be. Selling home-made pickles online is one of the best ways to reach out to thousands of food-lovers, no matter where you are based out of. Whether it is authentic gongura pickle from Andhra Pradesh, chili pickle from Rajasthan or fish pickles from North-East India, selling pickles online may be a great idea.

Spices and Masalas: India is a land of spices. Unless our meals are seasoned with at least a few spices, we are not satisfied. Most of the spices and masalas available in the market are adulterated in one form or another. Selling 100% pure spices and freshly-ground masalas, may not only benefit you as a seller, it might be received well by customers across India.

Snacks: Snacking is one of the most favourite pastimes for many of us. Whether it is get-togethers, movie-nights or just boredom, we all find ourselves reaching for some snacks. Home-made snacks like nippat, dry bhel, khakhra, banana and potato chips, moong dal, dry fruit mixtures, you name it, we want it. Paapads also add to this list of savoury items.

Instant mixes: Nowadays, everyone is in a hurry and nobody has the time to cook a traditional meal with spices and whole foods. Instant mixes become a life-saver, as all you have to do is cook the basic stuff like rice and mix the ready-made spices to create a delectable dish. Home-made instant mixes are always in demand, so if you are someone who is great at preparing them, you might want to cash in on the opportunity of selling them online.

Chocolates and Cakes: Every time someone visits a hill station, we are quick to ask them to bring us back some home-made chocolates. If you are passionate about baking and making home-made chocolates, why not take that interest online and sell chocolates, muffins, cakes, cookies and much more over the internet? What better way to make money than by doing something you love.

Protein bars: Protein bars are a great go-to when you get those hunger pangs but you want to eat something healthy. Peanut bars, oat bars, granola bars, dry fruit bars and many other varieties are a great way to eat healthy while also satisfying your taste buds. Protein bars are really easy to make at home and easier to sell online thanks to the high demand.

Home-made cheese, butter and ghee: Let’s face it, home-made butters, cheese and desi-ghee are a much better substitute to the store-bought variety. You could sell home-made cheese and butter online with the right packaging and instructions about the shelf-life and storage.
