A hungry backpacker’s delight

As a backpacker I know, eating out every single meal can get expensive while travelling; therefore many a times we feel like cooking in a hostel kitchen. It is a great way to save money when we are travelling.
So, when Hostelbookers invited me to add my simplest recipe for a hungry backpacker, I was more than happy to share one.

I wanted to make a wholesome meal which can be made very easily within minutes after a tiring day. The number of ingredients and number of steps were restricted to a max. of five. The challenge for me is to use ingredients that are easily available internationally.

  1. He he, nice one Nisha!! Dish looks tempting!! Though I ain’t a foodie much but still will ask my wife to give a try and may be it may help in some onsite trip one day being a veggie… My wife strictly keep herself away when we travel so no chance for me while traveling.

  2. @Sneha,
    So did you try this one? 🙂

    BTW, it won and now soon going to be a part of International Recipe guide book. 😀

    This is for those who do not know any cooking, so you can also give it a try. 😛
