Indian food is rich in veggies, beans, chickpeas and lentils. Curry in Indian food is a term for anything that has a sauce (thin or thick) or has spices.
There are many different sauces with different textures, flavors and ingredients from many regional cuisines. Some are tomato based, some are cream based, some just onion, or spinach or just a blend of spices, or sauce made with non dairy yogurt or coconut or chickpea flour. Here are some restaurant style and some Popular Vegan Indian Curries and Entrees from the blog. For more Indian curries and mains (125+ Recipes), get my cookbook Vegan Richa’s Indian kitchen.
