The following Indian cooking and food and recipe blogs demystify the process of Indian cooking and ease us into its simplicity and makes us feel familiar and comfortable with jumping in and giving Indian cuisine a try. Indian food surprisingly contains many ingredients we ARE familiar with such as potatoes, onion, chick peas, various beans, rice, yogurt, tomatoes, spinach and cauliflower. How these common ingredients are put together is what makes them both exotic and exciting. Most Indian food is either vegan or vegetarian, even though there is the occasional chicken , beef, lamb or other meat recipes found in Indian cuisine. Vegan and vegetarian dishes abound for both economic and religious reasons.
