Have you ever heard of a “Tiffin?” I knew what they were, but until recently I didn’t know what they were called.
These are Tiffins:
According to Wikipedia this is the definition and derivation of the word “Tiffin”:
Tiffin is lunch, or any light meal. It originated in British India and is today found primarily in Indian English. The word originated when Indian custom superseded the British practice of an afternoon dinner leading to a new word for the afternoon meal. It is derived from the obsolete English slang tiffing, for “taking a little drink or sip”. When used for “lunch”; it is not necessarily a light meal.
