How to Eat Vegan at Indian Restaurants
Indian cuisine has many vegetarian and vegan options
Avoid dishes with ghee (clarified butter), paneer (cheese), and yogurt
Ask for your dish to be made with oil instead of ghee (clarified butter)
Choose a dish that is commonly vegan
Try aloo gobi (potatoes and cauliflower), chana masala (chickpea curry), and dal (lentil stew)
Try appetizers and chutney (sauces)
Samosas, a popular appetizer made with potatoes and peas in deep fried dough, are commonly vegan. Try them with mint and tamarind chutney!
