10 Vegetarian Indian Recipes to Make Again and Again

I love to cook vegetarian Indian dishes. Some of my favorites are paneer tikka masala, saag paneer, and palak paneer. I like to make them at home because it's easy and fun!
These are my ten favorite Indian vegetarian recipes – try them for Meatless Monday!

These are my TOP 10 vegetarian Indian recipes - perfect for Meatless Monday or anytime you need a cheap and easy meal.

As far as vegetarian-friendly food goes, Indian cuisine leaves nothing to be desired.

I’ve been on a major Indian food kick lately, so I thought I’d share the ten recipes that I find myself making again and again.

I’m not alone as these are very popular vegetarian Indian dishes for the readers of this website too!

Some are perfect for weeknights, others are best saved for a weekend.

Cook up a big pot of basmati rice (have you tried my perfect rice method?) and start working your way through these Indian vegetarian dishes!

Best Vegetarian Indian Recipes

Creamy Indian Vegetable Korma


This delectable Indian vegetable korma is loaded with potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, peas, and green beans.

Make sure you have plenty of naan to dip in the creamy coconut sauce!

Vegan Indian Potato Chickpea Stew


Spiced potatoes, chickpeas and carrots are simmered in a savory vegetable broth with spinach and plump raisins.

Toasted cashews and fresh lemon juice add crunch and freshness to this hearty meal!

Indian Mulligatawny Soup


This fragrant soup is spiced with curry and made from creamy red lentils, carrots, apples, and coconut milk.

Make a double batch and freeze the leftovers!

Curried Carrot and Cauliflower Pickles


A quick and easy refrigerator pickle recipe featuring curried carrots and cauliflower.

Warning: these are very addicting!

Mango Lassi


I love a good Mango Lassi – it’s as easy as blending fresh mango, yogurt, and a bit of milk.

Try this with lunch, or simply make it for breakfast.

Vegan Palak Paneer


I’ve used tofu in place of paneer cheese to make this dish vegan, but you can of course make it the traditional way if you prefer.

My recipe calls for frying up some tofu, putting some spinach and aromatics in a blender, then simmering the whole thing on the stovetop.

Top with a bit of coconut milk (or cream) and you’re good to go!

Indian Naan Bread


Naan is one of those recipes that is incredibly easy to make, but somehow you just never get around to making it.

I add a bit of turmeric to my recipe to give it a golden hue.

Curried Carrot Fries

I came up with this recipe by means of necessity – I planted too many carrots in my garden!

They’ve become a household favorite and are delicious when dipped in yogurt.

Easy Red Lentil Dal


It’s amazing what a few fragrant ingredients and spices can do to a pot of lentils!

Make this dal or dahl recipe (you can choose your spelling) and then serve with plenty of naan bread and basmati rice for the perfect Indian meal.

Bombay Potatoes


Crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, and richly spiced with Indian flavors.

Bombay Potatoes are the perfect side dish for any Indian meal!


It’s been a while since I wrote this post, and I have two of the best vegetarian Indian dishes to share with you!

Madras Lentils

Whip up a big pot of Madras Lentils and stock your freezer with a week

Inspired by those awesome little Tasty Bite packages, this wholesome dish is hearty and SUPER filling.

Jaipur Vegetables

Tender veggies and a creamy cashew sauce make this dish of Jaipur Vegetables irresistible! Made with vegan ingredients and just a touch of coconut cream, you can feel good about this easy dinner.

Another Tasty Bite copy-cat, but this is one is vegan. It is LOADED with good-for-you ingredients. Dig in!
