Most Indian homes do not have a dedicated kitchen pantry and homeowners often store groceries in large containers or dabbas, as they are commonly known as, openly on shelves or inside cabinets. While this still works it is often unsightly and hard to find things when you’re in the midst of cooking or when you have friends/family helping you out in the kitchen. A kitchen pantry is therefore, an elegant solution to stow away all your non-perishable groceries.
