I have read that India is the biggest exporter of beef, yet cows are sacred in the country. In the United States, it is very common to eat dishes with beef or pork for many. So should I avoid eating anything with beef in it while visiting India? I am ok with switching to chicken or ham if I need to, but I don't want people to get upset with me if I have a steak or a hamburger while traveling. Is this a big deal in India, or something I should avoid?
