Bengaluru: Indian astronauts will probably be able to eat Idli Sambar while travelling in space.

The ISRO is also planning to send humans on space voyages, and this also includes making preparations for food.

Considering that the food in the space shuttle cannot be sent back to the kitchen if it is inedible, ISRO has to see that the food being given to the space voyagers, should not fall apart in zero-gravity conditions. To help with this,

Mysuru based Defence Food Research Laboratory (DFRL), the food research centre of the says it is is working on trying to prepare zero-gravity defying food to feed Indian astronauts with tasty ready-to-eats and easy-to-makes.

officials said they have also developed starch-based edible plates, cups and spoons that don’t add to the trash in space travel, or leave tell-tale traces of moving troops.

“We have all necessary technologies and products. We just need the government’s [specifications],” said DFRL Associate Director A.D. Semwal, during the first Army conference on ‘Empowering Field Army Through Food Technology’ here.
