With the outrageous success of my first list post –top potato recipes,here I am with the most loved vegan recipes.The vegan recipes I post here often get noticed more than the non vegan recipes.The reason I feel is that most of the authentic south Indian recipes(not sweets of course) are essentially vegan and you don’t have to go overboard to veganize the recipe.I guess this is definetly a reason for vegan recipes getting more popular here.So I thought it would be appropriate to list out the most loved vegan recipes as any person searching for vegan recipes in this blog can start from here and get an idea what most of the people love.While going through the archive I was not very sure if I should limit this list with top 10 because there were 3-4 recipes with same reach and I really wanted them in this list.Here you go with the list 🙂
This instant tomato dosai has been an instant hit here 🙂 Very simple to make,tangy,spicy all in one dosai with bursting tomato flavor is something I highly recommend you all to try atleast once.You are gonna love it.
Tomato pickle-easy way
Easiest way to make tomato pickle with fresh pickle masala powder.Anything tastes great with this simple pickle.
This authentic Tamil snack/breakfast/festival special is famous all around the world and one of the protien rich food with urad dal.Deep fried dumplings made with urad dal and spices,a sure culinary treat it is.Everytime I make this I fall in love with this all over 🙂
Never did I think this unusual chutney will become very popular here.A fiery hot chutney with pronounced flavor of musatrd along with onion goes very well with any south Indian tiffin.It is also great as a spread for bread/rotis.

Fragrant basmati rice,freshly ground spices and assorted veggies,can this recipe go wrong,not by any means,this masala bath is something you can prepare and enjoy over a weekend ,a relaxing and comforting meal it would be.
As I said above most of the Tamil day to day recipes are essentially vegan and This dosai with fenugreek seeds is one among themTry this and you will be blown over by the flavor of methi seeds in this crepe
One more breakfast recipe from Tamil nadu.Beaten rice makes this dosai very soft and spongy.A healthy filling breakfast.
This potato poori is my take on regular poori and this has become a latest favorite at my home and in this blog as well :). Kids will love this all puffed up poori.
Hope you enjoyed the above list,I know the list lacks in sweets/desserts and as you all know the authentic Indian sweets fairly depends on ghee/khiva.If I end up preparing any vegan sweet I shall surely update here,in the meanwhile [please feel free to write to me which Indian sweet would you love to veganize.
