Hi everyone,

I am looking for a a website that has vegetarian indian recipes. I am totally new to cooking indian...so a beginners guide would be great! I went to the bookstore the other day to find a cookbook, but they were all REALLY expensive! Thanks in advance!

Hi Kelly, I did a search on yahoo and came up with lots of websites. Not all are vegetarian but you can look through those that are. There's a brief descriptions with each site. I've included my search results as a link here. Hope this helps.

Here is a link that might be useful: Link to Indian Recipes

Hey, I like http://www.recipedelights.com/indianvegdishes.htm. It has some basic recipes, including my favorite: mattar paneer.

There's also http://bongcookbook.blogspot.com/
(don't worry--I think used here, "bong" means "Bengali" Indian or maybe from Bangladesh--not sure)

I have been preparing Indian food for years now, and have quite a few cookbooks. The first one I got was a terrific introduction...Betty Crocker's Indian Home Cooking (believe it or not) with recipes by Raghavan Iyer. It isn't all Vegetarian, but there are plenty of vegetarian recipes.

I have found that ordering used books from Amazon.com is a wonderful alternative to buying books full price. I have never had a problem with any of the sellers or gotten a book that was in poor condition. For example, the list price of the book I just mentioned is $25.95, but under the title on the web page, there are two sections...one says "Buy New" and the Amazon price is $17.13, but next to that it says "47 New and Used from $7.93". If you click on that, the list of vendors selling the book at a discount appears. Naturally, you do have to pay postage, but being that you're getting the book so inexpensively, that's not such a big deal.

Another wonderful book that is completely vegetarian is "Dakshin-Vegetarian Cuisine from South India". South Indian cuisine is quite different and delicious and I believe this book is quite authentic, considering the amount of chili peppers in the recipes...unless you have an asbestos mouth, I would cut the recommended amounts considerably. Amazon has a copy of that one for $9...this is the webpage for it, I can't figure out how to provide two direct links in this forum.

I second Manjula's Kitchen! She's simply wonderful and demonstrates real North Indian home cooking (almost as good as my mother-in-law!)

Also try showmethecurry.com Haven't found a good website for South Indian cooking, but then again havent looked, I just call grandma! Here's a decent one though: http://www.ammaskitchen.us/
