We're your online guide to making conscious choices that help people, animals & the planet. Indian dishes, in particular, are known for their intoxicating blend of spices and hearty ingredients, making them a great choice for cooking novices and culinary experts alike. Another great thing about Indian cuisine is that it features some of the most plant-powered dishes around! Aside from meat-based dishes, the main ingredients to watch out for, both in Indian restaurants and in your own cooking, are ghee and cream. When cooking at home, simply substitute a vegan margarine or plant-based oil (e.g. olive or canola) for ghee in recipes. When dining out, be sure to ask your server what type of oil or butter is used in preparation. Likewise, watch out for dishes with creamy sauces (e.g. Masala and Curry), which may sometimes be made with cream or other dairy-based ingredients. Again, the best way to be sure of ingredients in a restaurant is to ask your server. At home, it’s relatively easy to substitute a soy or coconut-based creamer (or full fat coconut milk) for the cream in your recipes. We’ve put together quite a diverse collection of Indian-inspired recipes. From dips and breads to entrees and desserts, you’re sure to find a new favorite in the mix! Place lentils in a saucepan, and add just enough salted water to cover the lentils. Bring lentils to a boil then reduce heat, cover and simmer until they are soft. Make sure the water level stays above the lentils. While lentils are simmering, grind together coriander, cumin, red pepper flakes, cardamom, cinnamon and turmeric in a spice grinder (a coffee grinder works quite well, too). Toast the ground spices over low heat in a dry sauté pan, until they are fragrant and warm. Using the same sauté pan, heat oil over medium heat.
