1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Grandma TOP 500 REVIEWER on June 26 2013
Format: Paperback
When I think of vegetarian food, two cuisines come immediately to mind - those of India, perfect for ovo-lacto vegetarians who still consume eggs and dairy, and Japan, where soy products rather than dairy rule the day. What happens when an Indian wife & mother decides to not only give up meat, but to go completely vegan and rely on the soy products of Japan rather than the dairy of India? Vegan Indian Cooking: 140 Simple and Healthy Vegan Recipes

Whether or not you are vegan or even vegetarian, (I am not, my granddaughter is) Anupy Singla, author of The Indian Slow Cooker: 50 Healthy, Easy, Authentic Recipes, does a superb job (one of the best I've seen) presenting both an introduction to Indian cuisine and a detailed list of spices and other ingredients commonly used in Indian cooking, often including photographs. 140 mostly easy recipes follow, ranging from basics like spice mixes, tamarind paste and directions for cooking various dried beans to soups, salads, and curries. Of special interest to vegans will be directions for making soy yogurt and a number of recipes that substitute baked tofu for the more traditional paneer cheese.

Grandma's $0.02 - Every cook needs a trick or two up her sleeve to accommodate special diets deliciously. Vegan Indian Cooking: 140 Simple and Healthy Vegan Recipes is a great place to start.

Highly recommended

This is a wonderful cookbook. And by cookbook I don't mean just a collection of good recipes, which is definitely is. It is much more than that.

The Introduction takes the reader by the hand and prepares them for Anupy's approach to food and cooking. It is a refreshing read. The Getting Started section then provides valuable tips and information for both new and experienced cooks. This includes dealing with some common myths of Indian cooking, a primer on Indian spices and some important recommendations for the vegan Indian pantry.

Most importantly, every single dish I have made from this book has been absolutely fabulous! The recipes are for those who like to know they will have the chance to make everything that goes into a meal and knowing your effort will be rewarded. For example, the spice blends at the front of the book are a big part of why the meals in rest of the book are so easy to make so good. The instructions in each recipe are clear and precise without being pedantic. The little stories before each recipe will put you in the mood for the meal you are about to make and the few photographs are beautiful and actually look like the food you will produce.

These are not five-minute meals, but nor are they dishes you'll have to spend an afteroon preparing. With an hour or so, it is possible to make two or three dishes in parallel that will feed you for a few days. Best of all, throughout the book Anupy includes tips that busy people can use to make the preparation of this healthy food as easy as possible.

If your goal when cooking is to feed the people you love a healthy meal that makes them say, "Wow!" when they taste it, then this is the cookbook you're looking for.

If you want to cook authentic (and healthy and simple!) Indian food, these books are for you!!! This book is perfect for non-vegans and vegans: a lot of Indian food is naturally vegan, so either way, you will love this book!

Anupy's books have all the staples of Indian cuisine, and she has done an amazing job at making it simple for non-Indians while keeping it authentic. Her books are really well organized, they have lots of great photos and tips, each recipe is really well explained and easy to follow, and they are all really healthy!!!

I am a Canadian married to an Indian and her books have changed my life - I now cook authentic Indian food regularly for my family, and my husband and his family couldn't be more impressed!! I have all three of her books now and we love all of her recipes.

Thank you Anupy for helping people like me and keep up the amazing work!!!

P.S. Check out her blog here to try out a few recipes and see for yourself how great it is:

Bring Out Your Inner Punjabi! Recipes for Spicy Nights. June 8 2012
By get skinny, go vegan - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
You NEED this book in your life.I just got this book a week ago, and have made at least a dozen recipes so far! I didn't think I could love any Vegan Style Indian book more than her first one (The Indian Slow Cooker), but this is just as great! SO excited about this ALLl VEGAN book!! So many veggies including kale, okra, sweet potatoes, cabbage. Soups & Breads. Salads that sound amazing-think spicy fruits, carrots, daikons! Slow Cooker & Stovetop recipes. Can't wait to make the South Indian Crepes. The dishes are already very healthy with emphasis on whole foods & dried beans. Anupy uses small amounts of oil and salt. I have found that you can skip both of those and still have great food. Last night we had the Kale Pizza breads-a super quick snack. Oh, and it has Anupy's best on the planet Chai recipe. And the drink section includes Iced Coffee & Green Drinks-for those of us who don't just do one or the other! Very inexpensive on Amazon and a lifetime of Indian food. Ingredients are inexpensive. Now should I whip up another dish with the cabbage before hubby comes home....decisions.....

Just a few of the recipes I have tried so far....Besan Poora (Chickpea Flour Crepes), Street Corn Salad, Jeera Aloo (Cumin Potato Hash), Punjabi Khardi (Chickpea Flour Curry with Veggies), Band Gobi (Punjabi Style Cabbage), Samosas, Cabbage with Mustard Seeds and Coconut, Methi Palak Aloo (Fenugreek Spinach Potatoes), Bhindi Masala (Crackling Okra), Sweet and Sour Potatoes, Spicy Plantains, Jeera Chawal (Cumin Rice), Tofu Curry, Mock Keema, Masala Tofu Scramble, Chickpea Poppers...

Looking forward to trying the homemade yogurt (vegan of course!), Dosas, Spice Mixes, Chai, Chana & Split Moong Dal with Pepper Flakes, Panchratna Dal (5 lentil stew), Brown Rice and Adzuki Bean Dhokla, Tandoori Tempeh, Pomegranate Chaat, Tofu Pakora, South Indian Tomato and Tamarind Soup, Mattar Paneer, Curried Winter Melon, Lemon Brown Rice, and the list continues. Chutneys, Breads, Salads, Legumes, Dips.

OH. Fabulous thing about slow cooking is that you cut up all those great things like cabbage, garlic, onions, etc...and then it takes time for the slow cooker to heat. This is perfect because that way we actually get those immunity boosting compounds out of the food. Either eat them raw or cut them up and let sit for 40 minutes. This book has both slow cooked & stovetop. And it seems like every ingredient is a REAL superfood. Affordable, everyday superfoods.

Eat your medicine!! Cumin, Fenugreek, Chiles, Lemons, Ginger, Cilantro, Mustard, Onions, Garlic, Cardamom, Cloves, and more. All touted to be supernaturally high in antioxidants & healing powers...........Side Effects? A Belly Full of Healthy Food!

Lay Flat Binding makes it so inviting. And Anupy spells all the "Indian Jargon" out, making it simple for first timers to flirt......
Flirt all you like, but I am ALL in!! Husband VERY happy with his Spicy Nights! (Obviously, you can adjust the spices.....But I'm experienced :)

Fabulous easy to make healthy and DELICIOUS food! June 19 2012
By Van DeLisle - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am not a vegan.. I'm not even a vegetarian. I eat fish once in awhile, and I eat very little dairy. But I live in Chicago, right off Devon, so I know my way around Indian cooking. And I consider Indian food one of the TOP THREE cuisines in the world, along with Thai and Mexican, imho. And this new cookbook, Vegan Indian Cooking, is really great!
I know from experience that Indian cooking at first can seem a bit daunting because the list of ingredients can go on forever, but once you get a few basic staples it's really very simple, even for an inexperienced cook. And Anupy Singla makes it very easy to understand. I can easily see making EVERY recipe in this book!
Vegetarian food does NOT have to be boring. And this book proves that VEGAN food can be both healthy AND UNBELIEVABLY DELICIOUS!
Thank you, Anupy, for this wonderful and valuable cookbook.

THE BEST vegan recipes Aug. 9 2012
By J. Hernandez - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My wife and I are vegan and have tried many different recipes we found on the internet that were rated highly. They were all just "meh".

This book, however, is full of unbelievably tasty and easy to make recipes. If you're looking for easy to make GREAT Indian food then you need this book. The recipes online and elsewhere can't compare at all.

Every single recipe we have tried from this book (and we've tried MANY so far) have been a smashing success. Everything about this book and these recipes scream authentic and you will become addicted to this cuisine. The book is well organized and her recipes are well formatted and easy to follow. There are little stories and tips about each recipe given. Very nice touch.

There are many Indian dishes in this book that you can find at restaurants but these recipes DESTROY restaurant made food. A wonderful example is chana masala. THE BEST I've ever had. The book is chock full of recipes for things I've never even heard of and can't pronounce but they are fantastic dishes.

Even if you aren't vegan you should get this book for easy to make healthy recipes. You will likely need to visit an Indian grocery store or do some shopping online for some of the spices. As far as I can tell you can also find all of the spices you need (and can't find in a regular grocery store) right here on Amazon for good prices.

Grateful for this book! July 25 2012
By stacey - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is amazing for several reasons. Its not intimidating, I feel like I can take on any of these recipes, its well laid out and easy to read, and as she mentions other recipes she labels the page it can be located on. I totally dig the introduction she wrote and am glad she wrote about her experience with food in her family and wanting to preserve whole foods cooking, and I relate to that and want the same for my daughter. I really appreciate her giving the Hindi words along with the english words as she writes. When I go into Indian markets I already feel like an outsider, and knowing exactly what I'm looking for in both languages takes out confusion for me and the shop owner. This book is well thought out and has a warm encouraging stand point and it would be a fantastic addition to any kitchen library, Vegan and omnivore alike Thank you Anupy Singla for writing this book =D !!!

This book made me go Veggie (not Vegan . . I like my cheese) July 25 2012
By Scott G Cool - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I started with the Anupy's crockpot book, and that opened the door to the world of Indian food for me. But this book has sucked me in even farther, and I am for the first time in my life trying a vegetarian diet. The recipes are clearly and beautifully presented, so damn delicious and SATISFYING that I truly don't miss my dead cows and chickens. I own a lot of cookbooks, and most of them seldom (if ever) get used - but these 2 books are already food splattered and dog-eared. If you are looking for an Indian cookbook, this is one you need.
