Best Vegetarian Indian Recipes

Creamy Indian Vegetable Korma


This delectable Indian vegetable korma is loaded with potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, peas, and green beans.

Make sure you have plenty of naan to dip in the creamy coconut sauce!

Vegan Indian Potato Chickpea Stew


Spiced potatoes, chickpeas and carrots are simmered in a savory vegetable broth with spinach and plump raisins.

Toasted cashews and fresh lemon juice add crunch and freshness to this hearty meal!

Indian Mulligatawny Soup

Make a double batch and freeze the leftovers!

Curried Carrot and Cauliflower Pickles


A quick and easy refrigerator pickle recipe featuring curried carrots and cauliflower.

Warning: these are very addicting!

Mango Lassi


I love a good Mango Lassi – it’s as easy as blending fresh mango, yogurt, and a bit of milk.

Try this with lunch, or simply make it for breakfast.

Vegan Palak Paneer


I’ve used tofu in place of paneer cheese to make this dish vegan, but you can of course make it the traditional way if you prefer.

My recipe calls for frying up some tofu, putting some spinach and aromatics in a blender, then simmering the whole thing on the stovetop.

Top with a bit of coconut milk (or cream) and you’re good to go!

Indian Naan Bread


Naan is one of those recipes that is incredibly easy to make, but somehow you just never get around to making it.

I add a bit of turmeric to my recipe to give it a golden hue.

Curried Carrot Fries

I came up with this recipe by means of necessity – I planted too many carrots in my garden!

They’ve become a household favorite and are delicious when dipped in yogurt.

Easy Red Lentil Dal


It’s amazing what a few fragrant ingredients and spices can do to a pot of lentils!

Make this dal or dahl recipe (you can choose your spelling) and then serve with plenty of naan bread and basmati rice for the perfect Indian meal.

Bombay Potatoes


Crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, and richly spiced with Indian flavors.

Bombay Potatoes are the perfect side dish for any Indian meal!
