Tiffin

Dont we love it

The word “tiffin” is of Indian origin, and it is used to describe a type of meal. The precise meal under discussion varies, depending on regional dialect, but as a general rule, tiffin is a light meal eaten during the daytime. This word appears in Indian English, spoken throughout India in addition to a plethora of other languages. “Tiffin” is derived from a word meaning “to sip,” perhaps referencing the light nature of the meal by differentiating it from a “gulp.”
