Vegan Cooking !!

Vegan cooking, is predominantly what we do in India. There are many dishes that we can list in Indian cooking that fall in this category. Vegan ism can be described as "Vegan ism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal productsEthical vegans reject the commodity status of animals and the use of animal products for any purpose, while dietary vegans or strict vegetarians eliminate them from their diet only"

The term "vegan" was coined in England in 1944 by Donald Watson, co-founder of the British Vegan Society, to mean "non-dairy vegetarian"; the society also opposed the use of eggs as food. In 1951, the society clarified the definition of "vegan ism" to mean "the doctrine that man should live without exploiting animals," and in 1960 H. Jay Din shah started the American Vegan Society, linking veganism to the Jain concept of ahimsa, the avoidance of violence against living things.
It is a small but growing movement.Well-planned vegan diets have been found to offer protection against many degenerative conditions, including heart disease,though if poorly planned a vegan diet may be deficient in some vitamins and minerals. Vegans should therefore make sure they have adequate sources of vitamin B12, iron,vitamin D, calcium, iodine, and omega-3 fatty acids.

In western countries this is like a big movement, as their predominant diet contains meat, butter , cheese , cottage cheese etc. 

Among the themes that was given for Blogging Marathon ,Vegan dishes was quite a challenging one. I found it a little hard to zero in on the dishes. The main rule was to take a no vegan dish and make it vegan. I have mainly  concentrated on Tofu and Milk substitutes.

So here I go on with my list of dishes for this marathon. 

  • Tofu Butter Masala ( Paneer Butter Masala )
  • Choco Banana Soy Milk Shake ( Choco Banana Milk shake )
  • Tofu 65 ( Paneer 65 )
  • Soy curd ( Normal Milk Curd )
  • Tofu Paratha ( Paneer Paratha )
  • Strawberry Almond Milk Shake ( Strawberry Milk shake )
  • Tofu Burji ( Paneer Burji )
I will be updating the link as and when the post is published. Happy blogging  to everybody/
