8 delicious vegetarian dishes you can make this Deepavali

Celebrate Deepavali with eight re-imagined favourites packed with punchy flavours for the new-age vegetarian.

 

1. Jicama Pomegranate Salad

Turnip-like jicama is a crispy, sweet root that lends itself well to salads, salsas and vegetable platters. What’s more, it’s chock-full of protein, lipids, vitamins and minerals!

 

2. Festive Couscous

Couscous isn’t just easy to cook, it also pairs beautifully with soups, salads and even desserts. Enjoy this combination of couscous with a side of sambal and mint chutney.

 

3. Watermelon Curry

The words to describe this delightful curry would be: light, luscious, and no less an authentic Indian curry.

 

4. Paneer Kebabs

You can grill all the ingredients and then skewer them (in which case you do not need to soak the skewers), or skewer them before grilling.

 

5. Plantain Koftas with Pineapple Curry

Who says vegetarian dishes have to be boring? This dish is packed with the flavours of the delicious combination of plantain with pineapple curry.

 

6. Quinoa and Potato Cakes

Quinoa, called the “mother grain”, was one of the three staple foods of the Incas, along with corn and potatoes. It marries perfectly with potatoes as croquettes.

 

7. Sanwin Makin

A Burmese dessert with Indian influences.

 

 

8. Pumpkin and Apple Halwa

An excellent amalgamation of pumpkin halwa with applesauce to delight the taste buds.
