Indian Vegetable Dishes are a synagogue to the vegetarians
of India. Indian cooking
places vegetable to the pedestal of an all rounder. Vegetables served as side dishes with an Indian meal
are cooked in about every way that is conceivable to man. It is hardly confined to side dishes rather they are turned into appetizers, snacks
, main dishes, relishes, pickles
, conserves, desserts
. Any vegetable can be cooked in all these forms, using different ingredients
. Vegetarian dishes in India are easy and simple.
Process of Cooking Indian Vegetable Dishes
are a staple food of Indian Cuisine. They require some spices
to enhance the flavour of the savour. Sometimes a little oil
is added to the vegetables at the end, to increase the glaze. Vegetables cooked thus have a roasted flavour and very soft texture, though the pieces hold their shape. Certain vegetables are often cooked prior to frying such as potatoes, yams, plantain and beetroot and this is done because these vegetables require more time to cook.
