Food 

Food and food habits can be a bit confusing when you visit a new country, and the vast, vast variety that India has to offer does not make it any easier! If you are looking for simple food that's easy on the system and palate, you have quite a few options. Cottage cheese, popularly known as paneer is available almost everywhere and is a healthy food choice which children will definitely enjoy.

Naan, which is a kind of bread and pulao or rice are popular carbohydrate variants consumed in the country and can be eaten along with any type of curry. Dosa and idli are staples in the southern states and make up for a scrumptious meal in itself. One delicious snack that has found its root in almost every state is the local version of dumplings called 'momos', which is a blast of flavour on the taste buds. However, the true spirit of India can only be grasped better through its food, and you should surely give the local delicacies a try and they will not disappoint you.
