Heating Instructions

Oven Heating

Our recommended heating method is in the oven at 180c until piping hot (30-40 minutes). We suggest placing the bottom three tins of your Dabba onto a roasting tray and stirring occasionally throughout the process. Please be careful when dishing up from the hot tins!


Microwave or stovetop heating are also fine. Please don’t put your metal tin in the microwave! Instead, decant your food into microwave safe containers before heating. Please ensure your food is thoroughly warmed through and piping hot before eating.

Salad or Slaw

Best enjoyed cold, our top tin dish is usually a salad, slaw or stir fry. However, it can also be heated if you wish.

Rotis and Naans

To ensure your roti or naan doesn’t crisp up, we recommend just 2 minutes in the 180c oven. They can both be enjoyed as they are, but they’re even better when warmed through.

Samosas and Pakoras

We recommend at least less than 10 minutes in the 180c oven to ensure your samosas or pakoras are piping hot.
