Navratri “Vrat Thali” on the track


The Ministry of Railways has got you back you this Navratri, despite your travel plans

As Navratri fasting is inevitable to most of us, the Indian Railways has come up with ‘Vrat Thalis’ for passengers on fast.

Passengers will find Sabudana Khichdi, kuttu ka atta (buckwheat flour) chapatis, boiled potatoes, and Sabudana pakora on the vrat thalis offered by Indian airlines. There are “aloo chaap and sabudana tikki” on the starting menu.

Sabudana khichdi and paneer makhmali served with parathas make up the main dish. There are many more culinary options like Kofta Curry and Sabudana khichri Navratri thali.


The unique vrat thalis will be offered until October 5, 2022. You may order the Navratri dishes while riding the train from one of three stations. Calling 1323, visiting, or using the “Food on Track” app are all options.

On the occasion of Durga Puja, Indian Railways will also be serving special Bengali food on the eastern belt.

Around 70 trains travelling via the IRCTC e-catering stations at Howrah, Sealdah, and Asansol stations in West Bengal and Jasidih Junction in Jharkhand will provide the special Durga Puja cuisine on board.

Mutton thali, along with traditional Bengali dishes like luchi (puri), pulao, alu posto (potato with poppy seeds), chicken, and fish thalis, are all included on the Poja menu. Fish fry, Kolkata biriyani, and rosogolla are among the other foods on the list.

Calling 1323 will allow travellers to order meals and have them brought to their seats.
