Here’s what you should know about Snacks for Train Journey

by eCatering irctc Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation
As such, food is never really been a problem for train travelers in India. There is a never-ending procession of hawkers and vendors offering a mélange of Indian snacks, along with beverages, hot and cold, to passengers. Not just snacks, also available are entire meals. Some vendors go a step further and take orders which they deliver at the stipulated time.

Regional influence

Over a long journey, it is quite easy to make out the state one’s in just by looking at the snacks offered by the vendors. These keep changing as the train thunders through and reflect the state and even the regional cuisine in all its glory.
While most people aren’t averse to the idea of sampling the local delights, there is an equal, if not more, number that hates the very idea of food that may have been prepared in unhygienic conditions, which to be true, in most cases, is. There is the added worry of eating food that’s rotten or spoiled due to the climatic conditions and the place it’s been stored in.

It is not a great idea to only rely on packaged and processed food throughout the journey, especially if it’s a long one. Too much consumption of it can trigger serious negative health consequences.

Home-cooked food is a much better option. If possible, make and carry along food items that can stay fresh for a longer duration. You can also pick up a few dry food items from a food store.

The other option

Then there is another option you can go for - of ordering food from an ecatering concern. These online companies have tie-ups with most of the leading food joints and restaurants.
 
All you have to do is search for the one you think would suit your needs the best and place your order. For those who place importance on cleanliness and hygiene, this is a great option since most leading food joints maintain proper hygienic conditions to prepare food.

Another factor that weighs in here is that you would not really have to settle for any particular cuisine when placing an order. Most of these companies’ offer cuisines of all types, regions, and even countries. You can order whatever you want from the menus shown on the site of the company. On offer are cuisines like Rajasthani, Punjabi, Gujarati, etc. to Mediterranean and Chinese.
    
If you have special dietary requirements, some companies cater to those too. Jain food, food for diabetics, baby and infant food, and even food for people who are observing fasts are made available upon request.
The modes of payment are varied and easily doable, such as Cash on Delivery, credit/debit card, online transaction, and others.

Once you are sated with the food of your choice, sit back and enjoy the pleasures of the train itself – that smoothly rocking motion of the coach, passing away of time in games, movies, books, and conversation with fellow passengers, looking out the windows… heavenly indeed!
