It is easy to find food for a hundred rupees in India. Just scout the roads, get right in the middle of the hustle bustle of the city. You will find everything from kebabs, biryanis, Baida Rolls (Egg Rolls), Pav Bhaji, Idlis & Dosas to Rasta Chinese, all in hundred bucks. Now, it is slowly getting tougher to find food for hundred bucks. This is an expensive time and quality of food for a hundred bucks is not always a surety, especially non-vegetarian food. Here are some recipes you can try with the hygiene standards maintained at home. There are also a few place in Mumbai and Pune that have built trust in terms of quality of food and its affordability. Having said that, it is better to choose wisely when buying in a tight budget, it is often smart to buy vegetarian or pay more and go for good quality non-veggie food. After all in try to cut cost you don’t want to fall sick, right?
