Railways are planning to ‘vrat ka khana’ (food during fasting) as a part of its e-catering menu during the Navratri festival which started on Wednesday,  said IRCTC.

The Railways’ catering arm said that keeping in mind the ritualistic fast observed by many during the festival, it has been decided to introduce them in its menu from October 10-18.

It consists of Satvik Bhojan(diet) like sabudana, sendha namak, kuttu ka atta, and certain vegetables.

These special meals will be available through select restaurants and at hand-picked stations on the Indian Railways network.

Items like Navratri thali, sabudana khichdi, lassi, fruit chats can be pre-ordered on IRCTC’s e-Catering website or ‘Food-on-track’ app.
