Indian cuisine is replete with vegan and vegetarian dishes. Vegans and vegetarians are spoiled for choice. So indulge shamelessly in the season's embarrassment of riches. India has the largest population of vegetarians in the world. There are several reasons for this. Three of India’s major religions — Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism — teach the practice of 'ahimsa' or non-violence towards all beings. Because of this religious tradition, India has the highest percentage of vegetarians out of all the countries in the world. While Hinduism does not demand a vegetarian diet, many are vegetarian as part of their beliefs. Meat consumption is very low. Meat brings lethargy. Lethargy causes you to feel sleepy or fatigued and sluggish. According to scientists, it may take 48 to 72 hours to fully digest meat, whereas vegetables and fruits digest in hours.
The staple diet in south India is rice and coconut as it grows in abundance. Masala Dosa and Idli are the most famous South Indian dishes which are made from rice and lentils and very little oil is used to cook it. Punjab is in the North of India and uses a lot of cream in its dishes, to create the richness in the curry which has always been popular with the British palate. Kormas, chickpea masala, and paneer dishes are popular. Gujarati Cuisine is well known for flavourful, healthy vegetarian dishes. Spices and seasonings are very important in Indian food including turmeric, cumin, asafoetida, curry leaves, cardamom, and mint. Potatoes and gourds feature heavily, as does rice, wheat, millet bread, and dal or lentils. The vegetarian thali from Rajasthan, India is a well-balanced meal. Since many Indian religions promote vegetarianism, Indian cuisine offers a wide variety of vegetarian and vegan delicacies.
