Chaitra Navratri: Enjoy Vrat Thali on Train to Delight the Journey

RailRestro offers Navratri special food to the travellers onboard. It will now serve the Navratri special “Vrat Thali” on train to the passengers travelling during the Navratri. Devotees are extremely conscious about their diet and food habits during festivals. This Chaitra Navratri RailRestro e-catering has welcomed a great initiative of serving “Navratri special food on train” to delight the festive trip.


Those who fast during Navratri take special care of food and packaging hygiene. They avoid food outside and carry their food packets, especially during the long journey. To fulfil all the basic needs of the travellers, food vendors across railway channels provide veg, Jain food, and sattvic meals on the train. 



Why Prefer Special Vrat Thali on Train?


Navratri is one of the most pious festivals of Hindus celebrated with great fervour. People keep nine days fast and seek blessings from Maa Durga. Navratri fast has many diet-related practices that are impossible to follow during long train journeys because Navratri-restricted foods are not available on the train. However, IRCTC-authorised e-caterers offer Navratri special food on the wheel.  


Prominent e-caterer like RailRestro has considered this a priority and will start serving Navratri food from April 2. Although, booking for Navratri special Thali has started from March 28. This will ensure quality-based, fresh and pure food for the followers of Devi Durga, who keep a nine-day fast. 


Train passengers can book Navratri’s special meal on train if they have a valid ticket with a 10 digit PNR number.  


Navratri Special Food for Safety and Hygiene


Buying food from the IRCTC-authorised food serving partners has many advantages including hygiene and cleanliness of food. Navratri foods are prepared without using garlic and onion. Rock salts, generally known as Sendha Namak, are used instead of regular salt. It has a complete menu of Saatvik food, including lassi, fruit juice, Sabudana khichdi and Pakoda, milk, paneer, vegetables, kheer, dry fruits, etc. 


The facility of Navratri special food is available on all trains, including Rajdhani, Duronto and Shatabadi. The food is prepared with great care of hygiene and purity so it will particularly be available for the passengers travelling in train.
