Attention Foodies : Contribution Invited

Reading Time: 2 minutes

If you have been following me for some time, you must be knowing how “cheap” I am ๐Ÿ˜‰ I travel in the cheapest way possible. But there are certain costs that can’t be controlled much. The cost of food and water are some of them. One cannot eat really cheap, unhealthy food while travelling. ย As I amย NOT a big time foodie I am able to control that cost somehow by eating cheaper foodย to survive.

But at times you get opportunity to reduce this cost further by cooking by yourself and not eating outย from a restaurant.

My experiment with Food

Recently it so happened that I got a chance to stay with a friend of mine while travelling. There was all the facilities to cook. Then I didn’t know what to cook, how to cook and so on. But as I was on a tight budget I had to do something about the cooking part.

Then I found Oats in the fridge. Just oats!ย  Nothing else, no milk, nothing.

I boiled water and added oats. Then I found pickle jar in the fridge. Pickle, One of the best friends of bachelors who are still learning to cook. So I justย added a bit of pickle in the already boilingย oats and mixed it thoroughly. And my food was ready! No curry, no milk, no sugar, I didn’t need any of them.

Here is the picture to prove that I too can cook ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hope you have enjoyed my pathetic cooking experiment.ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

ย What you can do to help me

Here is a chance for you to help me and other travellers during their travels. If you are a foodie, food blogger or simply someone who likes food, please do share simple recipes for travellers that they can make with minimum resources at an economical cost.

Here the oats will costย around ย โ‚น40 for half kilo. It will be enough for a day probably. Very economical and healthy. So if you know such recipes ( better ones ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) please do share. Do share the postย and ask other bloggers who loves food, ย if they can contributeย an easyย recipe. Help me compile a collection of easy recipe for the travellers on the go.ย  Hopefully I can try some of them during my next trip.

Thanks in advance ๐Ÿ™‚

Will help out. Good initiative. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hmmm i find khichdi is easy to mk if u carry rice n lentils w u, instant oatmeal is good for breakfast, if u hv some veges, boil or steam them n mix w butter n salt, any kind of salad w something chunky is easy to make. I used to carry my spices in small containers when i used to travel. It was light n simple.

Spanish omelette is the best solution! I will send you my recipe ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I have some doubts about your skills … You seem a good cook but you have opened the bag of oats on the wrong side ๐Ÿ˜›

Making breakfast any time of the day is reasonably easy and cheap. Scramble an egg. Toast some bread with butter (or without). Add some cheese and tomato if you have some and you have a breakfast sandwich. Magic!


You can join – Foodaholics in Ahmedabad on Facebook. I got this idea from the group. You can also ask this question and get great response from the community ๐Ÿ™‚


I don’t know any good recipes, as I usually buy fast food instead of make it myself ๐Ÿ˜› but I am enjoying looking at some of the ideas here…making me hungry again ๐Ÿ˜ฎ


quinoa is a great protein all by itself, and tastier than oats. you might try carrying some tiny packages of Super Greenfood, you mix it with water, a complete meal. I found some in Goa last time there!!!

Red lentils are very cheap where I live and so I make red lentil soup quite a bit:
