Indian food is both delectable and nutritious – a fusion of carefully blended spices and flavours which are enough to beckon anyone to the dinner table. Due to the vegetable and vegan bases of most delicious curries and mixed rice dishes, this type of cuisine is also great for those looking to stay on top of their five a day. Moreover, the dishes are perfect for anyone who has newly converted to a plant-based diet, or if you’re just looking to enjoy more meat-free meals!
For many newbies or less confident cooks, the idea of cooking South Asian cuisine can be daunting.
