Food Nostalgia

​​It’s only been a few weeks since I’ve gotten back and I’m really missing the food from India. A lot of the food can be found here too, but it tastes a lot different in India. Everything I ate was so fresh. Whether it was a restaurant or a family member’s cooking, the food was prepared so well and tasted so great because they used locally grown vegetables and fruit. Here are some pictures of some of the food I ate.
picnic
We were on the way to Udaipur, but needed to find a place to eat, so we parked the car on the side of a road and had a picnic on the side of the road in Rajasthan. We went with my cousin’s friends and her uncle, so everyone brought something they made from home.

pineapple
We went to a spice garden and I never knew pineapples are pink before they get ripe. Also there are a lot of street vendors so I always bought fruit from them and would love getting the pineapple slices with spices.

chutney
Our chef from the houseboat we stayed on made this pineapple chutney and it was one of the best things I ate.

fruit
Local fruit stand in my cousin’s village. (The red fruit is not a tomato)

coconut
I love how they are a two in one, drink and snack because you can eat the inside once you’re done drinking.

coconut
We had a coconut in South India every day

leaf
We had a traditional south Indian meal on a banana leaf. Eating this was an experience because we sat down at a long table and the servers would walk by and slap food onto our leaves and we had to eat things in a certain order and with our hands.
