Need some tips on how to make butter chicken last 24hrs in air travel




Hello all. A friend of mine living in the US is yearning to eat butter chicken from a restaurant in Hyderabad, India and I told him that I’ll get it packed and sent with a friend of his who is in town currently. Home to Home it will take about 24 hrs incl of air travel, local transport, waiting etc so it needs to last 24 hrs. Also is this legal/ok to carry a finished curry to the USA?

    1. *No idea on the legalities*

      *but keep it at less than 4*

      *degrees Celsius the whole way.*

  1. You could buy some instant ice packs and a cooler bag. Freeze the curry in a container with a flat bottom, place the ice pack underneath and use the ice packs as needed (when one gets to room temp).

  2. The easiest way? Freeze it solid, preferably NOT flat, place brick in ziplock, place ziplock in Tupperware. Place in carry on . It will be fine for 24h, I wouldn’t go longer than that.

  3. I’m not a legal expert but it seems to be prohibited
