4 Delicious Vegetarian Entrées To Try At An Indian Restaurant

by Julio Myers

If you're not a meat eater, then you will really enjoy eating at an Indian restaurant. Indian cuisine is great for vegetarians because there are many entrees that don't include meat. Some meals are rich with cream sauces and cheese, while others are more appropriate for the health conscious people who want to avoid dairy. Below you will find four really tasty meals. Two are rich and have dairy, while the other two are great choices for people looking for healthy meals that don't have cream or cheese.

Malai Kofta

This entrée consists of vegetable balls that are cooked in a savory gravy. The gravy is made with cream, coconut, cashews, tomatoes, raisins and spices such as cardamom. The particular ingredients of the vegetable balls will differ depending on the restaurants chef. The common base for the vegetable balls tends to be potatoes, along with a spice mixture. Sometimes onions will be added to the mixture when forming the balls.

The dish is served with basmati rice.

Saag Paneer

Saag paneer (spinach and cheese) is a great dish for people who love cheese, but don't like creamy sauce. The spinach is cooked in a light cream and spice sauce, along with onions and chilies. The chilies give the spinach a nice touch of heat. The cream is very light, it's not a saucy gravy like with malai kofta. The cheese is often lightly fried before it is placed into the gravy so that it remains crispy and doesn't melt into the spinach.

This is great served with an Indian flat bread such as roti.

Vegetable Biryani

This dish has no cheese or cream, so it's perfect for people who want a heart healthy meal. It's made with aromatic basmati rice. The first step is to sauté vegetables such as carrots, peas, potatoes, and onions. Spices are added to the vegetables as they cook. Mango powder, masala powder, and cumin are added to the vegetables. Once they have softened, lemon juice is added along with water and then basmati rice is then added to the pot. This is then left to slow cook until the rice is tender.

Vegetable biryani is great served with a fried bread such as poori.

Baingan Bharta

This is an eggplant dish that is also free of any dairy. It's made by slow roasting eggplant with onions, tomatoes, garlic and chilies. The mixture is then mashed and sautéed in a saucepan with oil, tomatoes and spices. It is served warm with a traditional Indian flatbread such as roti.
