When you travel in India, you need guts of steel. The foreign microbes at every corner can ruin your plan in no time. We urge you to take some basic precautions when roaming on Dharti Maa which will keep you safe and protected. We urge you to follow our plan if you want to avoid a mess.
Do not drink tap water
No matter where you are, the Himalayas, the backwaters of Kerala or the tea plantations of Assam, do not drink straight from the tap. Always buy bottled water. If possible even brush your teeth with it and be wary of the ice too.
Try and be a vegetarian
If you don’t want to test your guts, then avoid eating meat from the streets. Indians are primarily vegetarians, so try some new foods. Vegetarian dishes will be fresh and easily available.
Avoid half-cooked cheese
India is not highly recommended to have cheese. The choice is limited and it might be uncooked. Stale cheese can give you a nasty infection, steer clear of it. So next time you order pasta avoid the extra cheese. If you really long to have cheese, try some paneer.
Eat eggs very carefully
Avoid ordering the sunny sides up in India. Always order eggs in fully cooked versions. Or just stick to the simple curries. Indians have a host of breakfast options, try a parantha instead.
Drink milk at home
Avoid lassi, milk when travelling on the streets. Drinking milk can be a tricky business, the milk might be ok but the water mixed in it might be bad. So you either use your judgement or just drink black coffee.
Do not eat fruit from the streets
The fruit in all probability has been washed with tap water. It has been lying on the street since many hours. If you have to eat fruit, peel it yourself. And always sanitize your hands before eating it.
