Indian Travel Food Recipes | 300 Indian Travel Food for International Trip | Homemade Vegetarian Travel Food Ideas | 

Indian Travel Food Recipes | 300 Indian Travel Food for International Trip | Homemade Vegetarian Travel Food Ideas | We asked our cooking fans which is the Indian foods they travel with and we got response for travel foods like idli, thepla, paratha, sandwiches etc. Here are a a few recipes which are easy to pack while travelling. Some of these foods like ildi, paratha etc stay fresh for 5 to 6 hours, while food items like thepla and pickle stay fresh for a day. On the other hand, the dry food items can stary fresh for more than a day.

Indian travel food | idli and dosa recipes |

Idlis and tomato chutney prepared without adding any water is one of the best dish to carry along during travel. Idli is a very popular South Indian breakfast which is also a favourite Mumbai Street Food. Fluffy as cotton balls, white as the moon’ - every South Indian remembers those fond descriptions of Idli that mom used to convince them to eat breakfast when they were kids. You can enjoy them at any time of the day during your journey.

Tava idli recipe is what the name means, leftover idlis cooked on a tava in butter with Indian spices and vegetables. Hence they are also called South Indian tava vegetable idlis due to the presence of onions and tomatoes. Watch your leftover idlis transform into a scrumptious spicy tava idli as you toss them with crunchy onions, tangy tomatoes and peppy spice powders.

The master stroke in this spicy tava idli recipe is the use of pav bhaji masala, a very popular flavour that is loved by young and old alike and it stays fresh for 6 to 8 hours while travelling.

Dosa is also a good travel food. The dosas cooked with ghee, oil or butter, get a special flavour and texture as they cool, which is quite different from how they taste when hot and fresh.

When preparing dosas for travel, it is important to make them slightly thicker than usual and also a little moist. If you ask elderly women in South India, they will share with you the secret of making ‘travel dosas’. You need to spread the dosa on the tava. After it cooks on one side, take very little water and sprinkle it on the dosa before turning around to cook the other side.

Try the Tuppa Dosa. Tuppa in Kannada means ghee, and that makes the highlight of this recipe obvious! This dosa is a special one, which is often made when there are guests. You can actually smell the ghee from outside the house, and it will make you drool! Since the batter for this dosa uses more urad than usual dosas, the Tuppa Dosa also turns out soft and fluffy, which makes it doubly delightful.

You can also carry milagai podi, coconut chutney and tomato chutney as accomapniments to idlis and dosas.

Gobi paratha is a dish wish a universal appeal! What makes these whole wheat Punjabi gobi paratha so appealing is the soft and tasty filling of cauliflower flavoured with spicy green chillies and crunchy onions.
