The rains are here to stay for a while and so is the mood for hot, spicy snacks. Street food like pani-puri, bhel-puri and sandwiches may tempt you, but these are foods that you simply must stay away from in the monsoons.
This is because monsoon is the time for germs and bacteria which thrive in the unhygienic roadside eateries. As a rule you should avoid eating raw foods during the rains, refrigerate leftovers immediately, wash the vegetables used to make salads thoroughly and clean leafy vegetables with care. Above all, try to keep eating out during the monsoons at an absolute minimal.
Instead enjoy roasted corn, homemade Pakoras or drink hot soups.
Roasted Corn is especially delicious when you add spices to the ear of corn after roasting it. The spices liven up the flavors and add an interesting spin on basic roasted corn. Nothing can beat hot cup of soup with crispy pakoras during rainy days 🙂
Let’s play yourself safe with following tips:
- Keep yourself hydrated
- Have a balanced diet
- Eat clean, fresh food
- Keep monsoon ailments at bay
- Avoid puddles
- Exercise and rest during monsoon
- Loose, cotton clothes are the best during monsoon.
- It is advisable to avoid jeans as they do not dry quickly.
- Wash all fruits and vegetables thoroughly, particularly leafy vegetables and cauliflower
