Vegetarian Recipes

Not only does India have a dazzling array of fresh vegetables, each region has its own style of cooking them! This makes for mind-boggling variety. Vegetarian dishes are also, by and large, very quick and easy to put together. As a result, they are the perfect food for when you're short on time.
