Use these sample menus to make your vegetarian meal-planning a little easier.
Traditional Indian vegetarian meals are delicious and nutritious and usually consist of roti (Indian flatbread) and/or rice with an array of vegetable curries, lentils soups, raitas/salads. These are served with a variety of condiments such as pickles, chutneys, and pappadums and other fried and crunchy accompaniments like yogurt-chillies and can be added as desired. (Many of these condiments are available in Indian grocery stores.) These combinations of dishes are usually well-balanced and take care of general nutritive requirements.
Use the appropriate serving size to meet your specific needs calorie- and nutrition-wise. These menus work for any meal – lunch or dinner.
Here are some sample menus for everyday meals as well as special occasions.
I have tried to create menus that, for the most part, include recipes already on the site.
I’ll be adding more menus, so do check back often.
