Indian Festivals

With the onset of Navratri, our religious and devotional side gets lighted up, but some of us feel very restricted regarding what to eat and what not to eat during the fasts. The confusion gets more problematic when we need to travel to different places during our fasting. But No worries, as RailRestro delivers Navratri thali on train for devotees. Apart from the Vrat thali, the e-catering company also allows travellers to get varieties of Navratri food delivery in train for fasting. 


Here Is the List of 12 Navratri Special Foods:



1. Aloo Chaat for Navratri


“Aloo” is the king of vegetables. During Navratri, Aloo Chaat is like the king’s right hand- you can relish it on train. It is a great option to have during Navratri. You can add masalas and lemon juice to the Chaat for your taste and have it as a meal.  



2. Kuttu ka Atta Ki Roti During Fasting


Buckwheat, commonly known as “Kuttu ka Atta” in India, is a highly nutritious cereal (yes, even more than the normal atta/flour we eat).   The flour is a rich source of fibre, protein, iron and magnesium with very few calories. It is even free of saturated fat and helps a great deal in curbing our appetite, controlling our blood sugar levels and maintaining good digestion. During Navratri fasting, Kuttu ki roti is a wholesome meal you can pair with Vrat ke dahi aloo. 



3. Tomato Soup as Navratri Snack


We all love the basic tomato soup since childhood but never really have it during Navratri. Have 1-2 bowls of tomato soup prepared using Himalayan Salt. You can have it with a bowl of roasted makhanas as a proper meal. Healthy and tasty with negligible calories, all at the same time.



4. Suhang Ke Chawal ka Uttapam/Idli  


Suhang ke Chawal is highly consumed during fasting. You can get Suhang Ke Chawal ka Uttapam/Idli on train and enjoy its exclusive test. You might get served either with vrat wale tomato chutney or coconut chutney. To make Suhang ke Chawal ka Uttapam or Idli, people use the Suhang ke chawal instead of normal Chawal. Uttapam and Idli are  a delicious option to have for breakfast or dinner during Navratri fasting. 



5. Paneer Tikka for Navratri Cravings


Paneer Tikka is another option to have during Navratri. Railrestro offers rail passengers to get Vrat wale Paneer Tikka on train.  Then, you can combo with Kuttu ki Roti or Suhang Chawal ke Aate ki roti to treat your tastebuds with a wholesome taste. 



6. Makhanas Dishes for Vrat 


Makahanas are extremely healthy and low-fat snack items. It is the seeds of the lotus flower and is very rich in antioxidants. Makhanas are also one of the richest sources of calcium. You can have many formats, such as just roasting them for 3-4 minutes in your microwave oven and sprinkling Himalayan salt for taste, Makhane ki kheer etc. You can even get roasted Makhanas and Kheer on the train. 



7. Fruit Yoghurt as Navratri Dessert


Have a sweet tooth and craving for a tasty sweet dish during your fast? No worries, you can order fruit Yoghurt as Navratri dessert. Pick your phone and call Railrestro Customer service executive at 8102888111 and order fruit yoghurt. You can even ask to prepare fruit Yoghurt as per your choice. Moreover, you can pre-book your fruit yoghurt on the train for your journey during Navratri.



8. Milk Shakes for Hunger Pangs


Milkshakes are great options during fasting. You can even have banana and strawberry shakes to reduce hunger on the train. These are healthy yet tasty options. 



9. Baked Sabudana Tikki 


Whether a small kid in the family or an older man, we all love the sabudana Tikki in Navratri. The Tikkies taste yummier and soothe your belly. The Tikkies are baked using aloo, Sabudana, Some Masalas, and Himalayan salt for the taste. 



10. Sabudana Khichdi for Navratri Fast


This is again a classic food item people relish during Navratri. It consists of carbohydrates which fill the tummy. It is one of the best food options as a Navratri food option. Peanuts and potatoes get added to it to make it tastier. 



11. Navratri Special Kadhi Chawal 


The Word Kadhi Chawal in itself brings water to everyone’s mouth. Navratri special Kadhi can be made using swang ke chawal ka atta and can be eaten with a bowl of Suhang ke chawal. It is a delicious meal you can have as your Vrat ka khana. 



12. Suhang ke Chawal ka Pulao 


Again you read it absolutely correctly. A tasty vegetable pulao with carrot and boiled potato is a delicious treat. You can have it with cucumber tomato raita or even plain curd and relish it completely.


With all these Navratri Special foods, you can enjoy your Navratri days even on the rail.
