Countries such as India are largely vegetarian due to their religious beliefs. Yet India has one of the most exquisite and delicious range of foods in the world. From mild and creamy kormas to knock-your-socks-off madras, their curries offer a wide variety of meal options to suit any palate. The style of cooking varies from region to region, with some cultures preferring fried food with a high oil or butter content while others lean towards more tomato based recipes.
While lamb and chicken dishes may have been popularized in Indian restaurants and frozen meals around the world, the majority of traditional dishes in India do not contain any meat, providing an abundance of interesting recipes for vegetarians.
