3 Vegetarian Dishes from Indian and Pakistani Cuisine

February 17, 2020

Although Indian and Pakistani cuisine is famous for its use of meat in dishes like Karahi, Haleem and Paaya, many traditional chefs are starting to adapt well-known recipes for vegetarians. After all, the meat-free industry is a global market that is said to be worth over $51 billion! Read on as the team here at Royal Nawaab go over three authentic Indian and Pakistani dishes that are completely meat-free…

Chana Masala

As one of the most versatile Indian dishes, Chana Masala can be eaten as a snack, main meal or breakfast delicacy. After all, the chickpea curry is tangy yet satisfying and provides vegetarians with a hearty supply of protein without sacrificing on the taste experience of the dish. In addition to this, the curry also contains authentic spices like ground cumin, chilli powder, turmeric and garam masala which provides diners with a flavour combination so explosive that the absence of meat is merely forgotten.

Aloo Palak

With the implementation of hearty starches like potatoes, Aloo Palak is a traditional Indian dish that combines the root vegetable with spinach and spices in order to create an authentic dining experience. In fact, this dish is considered vegan friendly as well as suitable for vegetarians due to the absence of additional animal products like milk and eggs. Furthermore, Aloo Palak, which translates to Potato Spinach in Hindi, is often eaten with roti in order to enhance the flavours and bulk up the meal.

Sheer Khurma

As a staple dessert that is eaten during the Eid celebrations, Sheer Khurma is a pudding made from milk, nuts, dates and sugar. In fact, it contains a variety of interesting spices and flavours like cardamom, saffron and coconut in order to enhance the experience of the dish and can be served warm or cold depending on the preference of the customer. In fact, this vegetarian-friendly dessert is loved by many regardless of diet preferences.
