 Indian Snacks to Carry While Travelling Abroad

5/5 stars      1 REVIEW
Almost everybody likes to take along some food when they travel. For some, it is a necessity – they might not eat outside due to religious reasons, or their health might not permit it. When you are on a long train journey, or you are travelling in remote areas, you might not be able to find food properly at meal-times, so you surely need to carry along some snacks as a stop-gap. For others, food is fun! They cannot think of spending a few days or hours without crunchy snacks .

This article will help you solve your food dilemmas while travelling. Apart from theplas , which can be had as a meal itself, we have also introduced you to some super-tasty but satiating snacks like the Bhadang Murmura and the Poha Chivda . Snacks like Chakli and Khakhra are all-time favourites that need no introduction. Tea-time, even when travelling, will be incomplete without them. For those who travel abroad frequently, recipes like the Methi Thepla are a boon as they can stock them up in the fridge and have homely food once in a while.

We have given you a selection of recipes in this article, but you can find many more choices on our website too. Keep in mind that the dry snacks will stay fresh for longer than a week, but the theplas will last only for two days at room temperature. You must also add lots of oil while cooking to avoid the theplas from becoming dry and spoiling sooner. If done the right way, recipes like the Methi Theplas will stay fresh in the fridge for almost 15 days. Take some of these foods along when you travel. They will not only keep you hunger-free but also fill your heart with love from home!
