Vegetarian food during international travel


I am a vegetarian and have often found that it hard to find a pure vegetarian food while traveling overseas, this includes the food offered on the air-flight as well. A couple of years ago, I was reluctant to eat the veg food served at the non-veg restaurants. Though I cook and eat home made food, it is unavoidable to eat out while travel, and now I have adapted to the veg Chinese or Thai food though the taste buds miss the Karnataka taste.

Here is a compiled list of options you may consider while traveling abroad or even long distances and miss the South Indian veg food.
  • Every hotel has a microwave oven and a refrigerator. Most of the hotel floors have a common kitchen for cooking.
  • For breakfast, I generally buy milk, yoghurt, bread and jam, fruits and corn flakes; store it in the refrigerator .
  • For lunch and dinner, carry a small rice cooker. Every hotel has a charging point and it wouldn't be a problem to cook rice. 
  • You may buy Ready to Eat MTR food products from India. (Check if grains are allowed in the country you travel).
  • Check for the nearest Indian store where you stay so that you can buy the rice or even the required "Ready to Eat" MTR food products or Haldiram are available. 
  • Buy Ice cream and relish it as a dessert. 
Though it might be bulky to take a rice cooker, your tummy is still happy eating the food of your taste and save expenditure eating at restaurants. 

XOXO
