Vegetarianism has long been a key feature of Indian cuisine, and many dishes are naturally vegan. Vibrant vegetables in rich
fragrant sauces, nutty lentils, beans and peas, and an incredible array of spices: these are recipes to warm the body and soothe the soul. Drawing upon the very best vegan and vegetarian food from around the country, this book presents a mouthwatering array of dishes - lentils cooked a myriad of ways from mustard with cumin to spiced butter; kebabs made from lotus roots, coconut and wild fig; spiced yam fingers and plantain curry; all manner of stuffed vegetables and breads; as well as pilaus, bhajiyas, samosas and chutneys bursting with flavour. Grouped by region, with an exploration of the culinary history and landscape, and a guide to ingredients, utensils and cooking techniques, this inspirational book fully explores the exciting world of Indian plant-based food.
