Vegan Indian foods are all the rage —and for good reason. When it comes to eating vegan or plant-based foods, there is no other cuisine with such endless possibilities and flavor as Indian food.
This is because Indian food is much more than butter chicken, curry, and naan. Many staple Indian dishes are just inherently vegan — and most others can easily be made vegan, without losing the flavor profile, texture, or richness. In fact, most (if not all) Indian foods effortlessly lend themselves to beautiful vegan adaptations.
As we kickstart the Veganuary menu at our Durango location, we thought of listing a few of our popular and top vegan dishes here. For our Veganuary menu, please click here.
You will find many of these dishes at Divine Dosa & Biryani as well.
Here’s a round up of the top Vegan Indian dishes in Las Vegas:
- Malai Kofta: Malai Kofta is a creamy dish, which our chef masterfully prepares dairy-free for our Vegan food menu. You will not know the difference. Dairy cream is substituted with almond milk in this creamy, rich version of the traditional Malai Kofta.
- Saag Paneer: Tofu seamlessly replaces paneer (cottage cheese), in this thick gravy made with spinach. This one is infinitely flavorful.
- Yellow Masoor Dal: This is a popular lentil dish, enjoyed by vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. For our vegan lentils, we replace the ghee with plant-based oil. Warm and fragrant —this is comfort food at its best. Enjoy it with a side order of plain naan, tandoori roti —or for a perfect match, pour it over long-grained basmati rice.
- Paneer Tikka Masala: Again, we replace the paneer with its vegan cousin, tofu, and skip the butter. It’s a challenge to make it creamy, but our diners have told us it’s still silky, rich, and delicious.
- Vegan Biryani: How could we deprive our vegan diners of this aromatic delight, which is unlike any other rice preparation. You have to try this —we also have it on our Rotifix.com menu — homestyle Indian meals as well as Divine Dosa & Biryani Indian restaurant on the Las Vegas strip.
- Aloo Gobi: There is something about this simple, traditional vegetarian and vegan dish that just hits the spot when you’re looking for something simple, healthy, and flavorful.
- Mango Lassi: Yes, we even have a vegan version of this popular yogurt-based drink. We make it dairy-free and vegan. Nothing beats the Las Vegas heat like our lassi. Our Lassi Bar has many other vegan beverage options as well.
- Chicken Tikka Masala: We first introduced the Vegan Chicken Tikka Masala at the Vegan Food Festival in Las Vegas a few years ago and it was an instant hit. We also served it as part of our Veganuary menu for Vegan Baby and got so many inquiries that we added it to our regular vegan foods menu.
Whether or not you have embraced veganism, these dishes are worth trying —no matter what dietary philosophy you follow.
We also serve Jain food, gluten-free as well as halal food in Las Vegas. Everything is labeled accordingly on our menu as well as the buffet station.
