Stick to the Theme 

When planning a party, it’s best to stick to the theme. In this case, an Indian office lunch party is easy because it only needs one thing: food! If you’re more comfortable with ordering food online, then make sure your catering company has a way for people to order online through Apps, WhatsApp or Text.

The theme should be something that everyone can relate to and relate with each other over. Make sure there are options for both vegetarians and meat-eaters.

How to Cater Vegetarians and Non-Vegetarians?

Catering to two sets of eaters is no mean feat, but it can be done. If you happen to have a vegetarian and non-vegetarian at the same table, the easiest way to deal with it is by serving two separate meals. You can order a veggie platter and a meat platter at your local Indian restaurant, or alternatively, you can make both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food at home—but that takes more time and effort. Whatever you do, just ensure that each group has enough food on their plate so they don’t go hungry!

If one member in your party has dietary restrictions (such as being vegan or having celiac disease), then you need to make sure there are options for him/her too! For example, if someone wants paneer but does not consume dairy products, ask your Indian caterer about using paneer substitutes such as tofu instead!

If someone has allergies then opt for dishes made without allergen ingredients – seafood like shrimp; grains like wheat (if making rotis); nuts/seeds etcetera).
