【India】Food Situation


Hello. It's a tsumiko.

I was eager to master Indian cuisine when I went to India, but in reality, I only eat Japanese food.

After all, I really want to eat stable Japanese food 、、、lol

I think it's easier to cook because you can get the same ingredients as Japan than I imagined.


Here are some vegetables that I often buy as a classic.

  • green onion
  • Okura
  • Green beans
  • green pepper
  • paprika
  • lettuce
  • Kyabetsu
  • kale
  • cherry tomato
  • corn
  • onion
  • Potatoes
  • Carrot
  • Japanese radish
  • courgette
  • Mushrooms

The above vegetables are always at home.

I buy vegetables at supermarkets or online, but vegetables spoil quickly when I put them outside, so I immediately store them in the refrigerator or in the freezer.

The day you buy a lot of it is a real struggle, and you end up pre-processing vegetables for hours.

I want to buy a little bit in a planned way, but I always buy too much and the kitchen is at war.

But I always manage to get through it by telling myself that I am doing my best for my future self.

By the way, just boil or cut it in the pre-treatment and freeze it to make it insanely easy to cook later, so I recommend it.

When I was in Japan, there were many convenient frozen cut vegetables Japan so I think it is a really convenient country.

By the way, when you want to freeze vegetables in a Ziploc bag, (1) put kitchen paper before putting vegetables in Ziploc, (2) put cut vegetables on
top of it, (3) put
them in the freezer, (4) remove
kitchen paper when the vegetables are frozen to some extent, and you can freeze the cut vegetables in
a parapara,
so it's easy to use later.

I didn't know you were doing that!

I had a friend teach me this method, and I am very convenient and grateful.

Fruit Edition

I had heard that fruits could be obtained cheaply when I went to India, so I was looking forward to it.

I'm happy because even if I eat it every day, it won't affect my family budget and I can get vitamins.

  • mango
  • Watermelon
  • melon
  • Strawberry
  • Banana
  • blueberry

The watermelon and mango were particularly surprising.

Even if you buy a watermelon, it is very cheap at about 100 rupees. (About 150 yen for Japan yen)

And it's sweet and juicy, so you want to eat it every day.

I had never bought mangoes before in Japan, but I often buy them in India because they are cheap.

The strawberries were a little expensive, but when I bought them because I really wanted to eat them, they were too sour to eat raw, so I finally ate them as strawberry jam.

I think I'll probably never buy it again.

There are many other fruits on sale, so I will try to eat more.


There is also a religious aspect, and the mainstream is chicken, which is the cheapest and easiest to get.

However, I can also get pork and beef, so I have no particular problems.

  • Breast meat
  • Thigh meat
  • Chicken wings
  • gizzard
  • Pork
  • Beef
  • Minced meat
  • sausage

I thought that if I went to India, I would only eat chicken, but surprisingly, there are various meats to eat.

The texture of the meat varies depending on the store you buy, so the chicken here is delicious, but the pork is not so much.

Also, I have only bought sausage once because of its indescribable taste and texture.

The crispness of the skin is not present in Indian sausages.

I miss Schauessen eating at Japan.


My husband often says that he wants to eat fish, so I sometimes buy fish.

  • salmon
  • tuna
  • sea bream
  • octopus
  • How
  • Shrimp

You can also get salmon, tuna, and sea bream, but they are expensive and rarely eaten.

I also try to find out the mystery fish sold to India.

Shrimp is cheaper than Japan and often appears on the table.

It is plump and delicious.

Frozen Food

I didn't have an image of frozen food being sold, but surprisingly there is.

However, I have never bought something seasoned because it is a mystery what it tastes like.

Here are some of the things you've purchased so far.

  • Curry bread
  • Takoyaki
  • Potato fries
  • mashed potato

I didn't buy much.

The curry bread was served by Bon Curry and was a little spicy, but I was able to eat it deliciously.

The ones I often buy are mashed potatoes with a smiley face, which is cute, and it tastes the same as Japan and is stable.

At last

I really want to try various ingredients, but I just think about it if it doesn't taste good.

It's stable, and the usual menu is on the table, so sometimes you want a change.

I try to dabble in funky ingredients once in a while.

Surprisingly, I was able to live in India without having any problems with what to eat.
