SaleBhai – Website Review – Online Shopping for sweets, snacks, dry fruits & handicrafts
We all have branched out to various cities, states & countries seeking different opportunities. Technology has been helping us stay in touch with our roots, no matter where we live. When I had to move out of the country, I started missing our traditional food very badly. It’s true that we won’t realize what we have, until we miss those. I always dream of how nice it would be to get my native sweets & snacks delivered internationally at my door steps. 😐 It’s slowly getting realized these days. There are so many online shopping websites that deliver our desi products internationally. While searching for such websites, I came across – SALEBHAI – an online shopping platform for all your native food cravings. When I checked their website, I came to know there is much more than food in their website like health & herbal products, arts & crafts, gifts and puja needs.
We all have been ordering pizza for home delivery with a few clicks. Won’t that be cool if we could do just the same for our desi foods from our favorite location? SaleBhai covers the products from the length and breadth of India. So, you don’t have to think about planning a holiday, booking tickets and all other hassles when you have a desire to taste authentic Assam tea or to buy genuine handcrafts from Rajasthan, saffron from Kashmir, or homemade chocolates from Ooty. SaleBhai offers them all; you can buy anything from anywhere and it will be delivered right at your doorsteps. 🙂
More on SALEBHAI:
SaleBhai.com is easy to access and you have around 9000 products to choose from. The most impressive thing about their website is that although the main focus is on the food items, they also have a wide array of handcrafts, herbal products, and puja items from various parts of India.

They have more than 750 SWEETS & SNACKS variety including Namkeen, Thepla, Papad, Sweets etc. I really appreciate the note of shelf life of each product in the description which helps in ordering those based on our needs without any wastage. Their BAKERY includes more than 300 varieties of chocolates, cookies, cakes, spread & syrups. Standard, special, chocolate-coated & mixed variety of more than 150 DRY FRUITS are available for shopping.

Body care, Hair care, Baby care & Super food varieties of about 700 are included in HEALTH & HERBAL section. Considering the shelf life of a few products, their INTERNATIONAL shipping is limited. A small bumper on the road! Still, we get 430 products to choose from based on your location. They are constantly updating their site with NEW PRODUCTS also.
Being a coffee lover, I am impressed with the availability of French press & South Indian coffee filter. Another popular thing in their website is PUJA items. Now, you can send your thoughts along with blessings with a Puja thali to your friends & family on auspicious days. I saved the best for the last. Being one of the world’s top producers & having millions of mango lovers, India is all about the summer fruit. And SaleBhai houses the most popular varieties of MANGOES from India’s best orchards just for you. Also, don’t forget to check out their blog for wonderful tips. 🙂
We purchased one of the tempting sweets from their wide sweets collection – coconut puran poli from “Marathe Milk Products Coconut Holige” and a fine grade of Arabica coffee from “The Indian Bean Appa’s Coffee (Powdered)” as those two are few of our favorites.
Puran Poli will surely be loved by people of all ages. The flatbread was flavored with a coconut filling and the sweetness from jaggery would just be divine. We got the poli and just warmed it up with some ghee. 🙂 Our grandpa, a big lover of sweets enjoyed the poli very much. We are glad that he gets to taste the poli from Mala (Udupi, Karnataka) on a leisurely evening just sitting at our home. 🙂 There was a detailed description of the product which was damn impressive. The ingredients, shelf-life, features, storage, nutrition facts, etc. were explained in detail. This would sure help the buyer in choosing their products. Even an intro of the seller is available. Cool!
The richly aromatic coffee from Western Ghats native to Kodugu surely speaks for itself. Nothing can beat the taste of filter coffee. Our best-known coffee critic, our mom is moved by its taste and aroma. The taste of ‘appa’ coffee stands out in the crowd of other instant coffee powder brands.
Our concern is the shelf life of poli stated in the website. It is about 10 days and we got it delivered just on the 9th day. I couldn’t blame it much, as ours is a small town and obviously it would take a couple more days compared to other places. If it was Chennai or any other big town, maybe we would have received it sooner. So, make sure you check the shelf life before ordering products for national & international delivery. But it’s good that they mention whether the respective product service is available in our area based on our pin code. Secondly, we were not sure about how many pieces of poli we get for 380 gms while ordering. We would appreciate if they also include the approximate number or number of people it can serve in the product description itself to ease the ordering process.
Last thing before I forget, they have got juicy mangoes from various regions now online. Order them before they are out of season. 🙂
Overall, we are happy with the products delivered. Both quality and price were good. I would give 4/5 ratings for SaleBhai based on my shopping experience, website browsing, and also the products received. I would surely recommend SaleBhai to my friends. 🙂
Order your favorite items from SaleBhai and experience the comfort of having your hometown snacks and products wherever you are! 🙂
