Vegan Indian Cooking

140 Simple and Healthy Vegan Recipes

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Anupy Singla, author of the best-selling Indian Slow Cooker brings you 140 simple and healthy Indian vegan recipes in her new cookbook Vegan Indian Cooking.

In her introduction, Singla shares that she doesn't mean to impose her vegan diet on anyone with this cookbook, bur rather share about her journey with food in a way that may benefit other people.

"[This] is not a book that forces a lifestyle upon you. It's not a book that tells you what you should be eaten on any given day," she says. "This book tells you, 'Eat what you want, but make sure what you eat is real, whole food. And open your mind to all of the possibilities.'"

Singla's mother was a vegetarian while her father enjoyed meat on occasion. So growing up, she followed a traditional Indian diet that was primarily vegetarian with an occasional chicken breast on special occasions. Her transition into vegan Indian food wasn't that much of a stretch for her once she gave up meat and diary altogether.

Singla became a vegan in the mid-90s when she was studying at the Unviersity of Hawaii. She'd been suffering from a case of pneumonia, had no energy and her immune system was failing her. After seeing a naturopath, she gave up dairy, meat and seafood for six months to cleanse her system and better assess her food allergies - and the switch stuck.

In this colorful, simple and beautifully-diverse cookbook, Singla shares versions of her favorite recipes with a unique vegan twist. Just a few of the dishes you can expect to find in Vegan Indian Cooking include Baked Samosa Sticks, Cumin Rice, and Punjabi-Style Cabbage, or "Band Gobi."

Singla shares healthful alternatives to rich cream, butter, cheese and meats, and the result, she says, is terrific Indian flavors and nutritious, balanced meals which she believes will appeal to vegans and non-vegans alike.
