Indian food, with layers of complex flavor and a heady aroma, is some of the best in the world. But it is not an easy cuisine to master immediately because you need a basic understanding of spices to balance out recipes, especially when you veganize them.

That’s why I’ve collected for you a few diverse and easy Indian vegan recipes that need just a few simple ingredients. Not only are they delicious, but they will give you a strong foundation to build upon when you tackle slightly more complex dishes like my vegan butter chicken, chickpea curry or vegan malai kofta.

I haven’t included Indian bread recipes here because with these there is a learning curve. But if you want to try your hand at making them, you can dive in here for all of our Indian bread recipes, including vegan naan and roti.
