Generally the rule on trains is dont complain - eat whatever you get.
But I think this train breaks the rules !!!
Can't help - have to complain and warn fellow passengers
Other than all the usual hygiene and disgust issues common to most trains other than the Rajdhanis & Durantos etc., there is some problem beyond perception in this train kitchen.

know whether the problem is North Indian guys trying to sell South Indian dishes or just lack of interest in providing at least acceptable food.
If the cooks (cant even think of writing chef here) are northies, then I guess they should stick to serving the food that is their forte irrespective of the train route. Similarly, if they are looking to serve South Indian style, then they have to employ South Indian chefs or at least ones they have experience in.
It is just like an awkward experience I had in a Kerala restaurant where I was served "butter chicken" with sambhar powder in it.
Well, of course you do have the usual hygiene (the lack of) issues etc. with this.
n.b. : South Indian food is not equal to idlis and doshas (To all the people who have pseudo typed ;) )
Posting this same on the return train (Nagercoil - Gandhidham) too as the catering staff is the same

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
