2. Himsagar Express – Jammu Tawi to Kanyakumari.

Himsagar Express

Among the above two, the Himsagar Express aligns a lively triumph of the Indian Railways. There is a fact which is a big reason of such applause. According to this, it states that this train is the only train that runs on the longest route as we notice within the borders of India.

Initially, after saying good bye to Jammu Tawi Railway Station, Himsagar Express starts rolling over the tracks towards Kanyakumari Railway Station. On its way towards Kanyakumari, it explores many bridges uniting with the tracks, green forests, bluish watercourses, some hidden areas and too many stations in between. It leaves the hands of the northern point to meet the extreme Southern point of India.

The term “Himsagar” when get extracted, delivers two small terms, “Him” and “Sagar”. The former one directs towards the Grand Himalayas that is in the north and the latter one reveals the huge Indian Ocean which lies in South India. When these two ties a knot with each other, it gives out “Himsagar” which shows the path towards the gathering of the three oceans of Kanyakumari from Kashmir that is masked with snow.

Nearby 75 hours are covered by Himsagar Express to touch its destination after traveling about 3751 kilometers. All in total, nine states of India are crossed by this express railway that includes Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Delhi, Maharashtra, and Kerala. By running to and fro from Jammu Tawi and Kanyakumari on the weekly basis, this renowned train takes about 77 halts at a same number of stations.

Food on Train

After a short but important discussion about every significant point of this distinguished train, Himsagar Express, we will now through some light on the “food on train” that is popular in this entire journey.

Moving from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, you are not going to find any dish which would be a replica of another one when it comes to taste.  Moreover, when we would talk about the choice, it would touch infinity.

Indian food, it is just amazing, indeed can’t be described in words. This is simply because of the diversity and variety that are actually widespread all over India. Each and every state of India has much to say about their special tasty food and also the preparation of these, that can’t be missed. After getting influenced by the culture, climate, and geography of the state, most of the traditional dishes come forth.

Let’s sit to talk about some of these that are quite known and cherished ever:

Chaprah

The red-any chutney directly from Chattisgarh is named as chaprah which sits beyond to that of “exotic” one. It is made using eggs and red ants. Yes, this is a non-vegetarian dish yet it is strong and spicy.

Chiroti

Most popular in Karnataka, Chiroti is a pastry that is well topped with the powdered sugar and dipped in hot almond milk all around.

Khubi ka Lai

Your experience would be wonderful after tasting this enchanting sweet dish known as Khubi ka Lai. Born in the city of Barh, it is made from mawa, sugar and knubi seeds. It may be given a ball shape or may too bestow a glimpse of a cake.

The food on train that you are going to get towards the destination kanyakumari, is prepared using an amazing combination of spices and an obvious garnish of the coconut. Coconut appends an exotic taste to most of the foods. As we all know, coconuts are grown here enormously because of the presence of the excess of water. Because of this, you are going to sense these two savors differently in almost every dish here.

Apart from these two, you may also enjoy the delicious delicacies of the fresh fishes and also the typical platter of South India in their lip-smacking and authentic forms.

Some of the typical South Indian varieties of food on train that you shouldn’t miss are kesari, Payassam, Sweet Pongal, Upma, Rasam, Sambhar, Vada, Chutney, Dosa, Idli and more.

The delicacies of Kanyakumari are quite spicy but you would notice that the ingredients that are used while preparation would be less. These dishes would make you remind the food culture and taste of the beings from Kanyakumari. Here the basic food is rice but some people opt for Tapioca also. In the hilly areas, this food is quite known.

In most of the delicacies, people cook fish, meat, and agro products. Here the sea fishes are in-demand. In early morning and night, the fishes are much caught here in the seas all around the district. After that the fishes turn to inner towns, village and markets over there in the sunrise.
