Hey guys loving all the recent posts they have been amazing! It’s so fantastic to see all the new people joining in to. Thanks for making it so welcoming guys. Just a quick one from me - I’ve been busy pulling together another e-book. I have had a lot of enquiries about vegan food so am working up a book that outlines some of the main ideas and what these mean when it comes to Indian cuisine. It’s not aimed solely for vegans it’s about widening your horizons about some of the concepts and some new recipes! To make sure I cover all the topic that interest you let me know if you have questions or things you want to know about veganism!
It’s just started snowing here so stay safe guys!

Ok my understanding of it is
Pescatarians will eat fish but no meat
Vegetarians will eat nothing that came from killing an animal so will eat eggs cheese...etc
The vegan diet is nothing produced from exploiting an animal.
The whole thing is very grey and completely depends upon the individuals views.
And then you have those people who
Feel they they have the right to force
There views violently upon others.
There are a few words that describe
These people that I won’t put in to text.😂 everything in moderation that’s my view.
We do eat far to much meat nowadays. We eat vegetarian two maybe three times a week,not because of the meat issues,just because we enjoy the meals

Yes, like @traceyross, I would like to know what is vegetarian and what is vegan exactly. What are the lines of demarcations? @Hari Ghotra.

I’d be very interested to learn more about vegan food and Indian dishes @Hari Ghotra . I do enjoy your vegetarian recipes but don’t know the difference between a vegetarian and vegan dish. I love eating a mixture of meat and vegetarian meals so I am happy to broaden my knowledge and cook/understand vegan too. The only nutritional thing I know is that chickpeas/beans/lentils are a good source of protein so keen to know more about the nutrition side of things. I especially love carrots, turnip and leeks which were a bit part of my diet growing up in Scotland in soup and stews and wondered if they are used in Indian/vegan food much? Turnips (swede) are seasonal in the USA so I’ve only found them in winter. I might need to grow them! Any new/vegan recipes with chickpeas would be amazing as can’t get enough of them too. Looking forward to your ebook!💞👌

What I’m interested in is the philosophy behind balanced nutrient intake: does one balance it per meal, per week, is there a cycle where different meals provide different nutrients over the course of a week or month?

I’m not vegan, nor a vegetarian (you may have noticed), more of a flexitarian. I don’t mind vegan food, as long as the only good thing to say about a dish is not “well, it’s vegan” :-) But I don’t think I really have to worry about that with recipes from you.

And also from the health aspect, very often it's a problem for vegans to eat everything what the body needs, proteins, minerals. So vegan Indian meals are full of this.👌

@Hari Ghotra I like vegan, vegetarian and also meat dishes! For fruit and vegetables I claim organically treated products. And as to animals, they have to be treated with respect. Organically treated meat cannot be cheap!! So the consumers are in the powerful position to influence and to change the market. Eat less, but better!

Fantastic @Hari Ghotra! Though I’m not a 100% vegan fan, I’m very interested in veganism from an ethical point of view. I eat very little meat, and mostly vegetables. So much more vegetarian than vegan. Very interested in what you have to say about the topic! Thanks in advance!!!

I'm not a vegan but I think you should see it from the side of vegan people. The Indian cuisine offers so much for vegans due to the huge variety of pulses and the very different use as well as the very yummy cauliflower curry recipes😁😉. So for me it's a kind of necessity to introduce some vegans into the empire of Indian cooking. @Hari Ghotra @Jo dunn @Mark Harvey @boo.

Great idea @Hari Ghotra! We, in the rich western world, eat too much meat!! People in poor countries pay for it since big companies there plant and harvest the food for the animals sold on our markets. People in poor countries lose their agricultural surfaces for producing their own food!! Incredible! We must not support that and reduce our meat consumption considerably. We have radically reduced ours by eating meat only once a week. And we feel good at it!!

I've seen and been a member of a few internet curry groups and although it's taken a wee while this one knocks the rest out of the park now.

I can't believe the standard of cooking, it's gone through the roof. 🏠🚀🌶️💥
