When people talk about being vegetarian, many usually think that they do not have many recipes to choose from. Furthermore, being vegetarian in several countries like United States would only require them to eat raw or uncooked vegetables.
However, that is not the case for Indian vegetarian recipes.Vegetable lovers will find delight in eating the delectable Indian food recipes without the need to have the same old, boring, and dull taste that they have with the typical vegetarian cuisines.

The Indian vegetarian recipes have a wide array of choices when it comes to flavor. You can still taste that mouth-watering zest even if there is no chicken, lamb, or any kind of meat used in the ingredients.
With nearly 28 states, more than 50 languages and hundreds on ethnic groups located in different parts, India surely can be named country with most diverse cultures. Every state has its own history, traditions,
culture and of course food. Every state have its own style of cooking, every home differs in way of preparing a certain dish making taste of Indian vegetarian recipes even more diverse.
Indian vegetarian recipes are designed to be eaten collectively. Unlike western food, Indian vegetarian recipes cannot be eaten or served without a combination. Thus, even though you like that curried vegetable or chutney, try not to eat it by itself. Combine it with rice or Indian bread or with other dishes. This will help you enjoy the meal more and will not give any digestion problems later.
There is basic rule about how to combine Indian vegetarian recipes to make a complete Indian meal. Each Indian vegetarian meal should consist of starch (for example: rice and/or Indian bread), one or more main dishes (for example: a lentil and vegetable combination) and some kind of chutney. Usually two vegetables and/or lentil dish will be served with meal; one 'wet' with lots of soup and one 'dry'.
For a simple meal there will be only few varieties of dishes while for an elaborate parties or festivals, more variety of Indian vegetarian recipes are prepared.
