Dakaar: Your personal recipe app on Android

Dakaar is a ridiculously easy way to discover and share recipes, which will rejuvenate the chef within you. It comes with around 2 lakh+ recipes covering different categories and cuisines like Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Italian and more. Also, the recipes can be browsed based on different categories like Desserts, Kids Special, Health, Snacks, Dinner, Breakfast, Lunch, etc. The app is intelligent enough to suggest you recipes based on the time at which you are browsing the app. If its time for lunch, it will show you recipes for lunch and same goes with breakfast, snacks and dinner. It aims to provide the best cooking experience in your kitchen.


Dakaar was founded by four college friends, namely Javed Khatri, Mandar Sawant, Uday Naidu and Ojus Sangoi. They were building apps together since their college days.

There is a lot of scope for innovation in the cooking and recipe space, specially here in India, hence, Dakaar is taking up the challenge to solve it. They aim to become “everyone’s ultimate cooking destination”. They visualise to build a social network for foodies, chefs wherein everyone can share recipes with each other, users can chat with each other, share tips, share recipe images and more.

According to the company, they have got around 1000 users just within a week of launch. The app users are spending a good amount of time (nearly 8 minutes on an average) browsing and sharing recipes.


Some of the features that differentiates Dakaar from its competitors are as follows:

  • We promise you won’t such a quality app with a nice and easy to use interface
  • Offline access
  • Option to request any recipe
  • Regional languages (coming soon)
  • Option to submit your own recipes and get featured on Dakaar (Home Page)

To bring out the ‘foodie’ inside you and cook some delicious food to satisfy your taste buds along with your families’ and friends’, download the app now. Hopefully, the app makers will bring out an iOS version of the app soon.
