Indian Main Course Vegetarian Recipes, Main Dish Recipes

In any meal, the main course comprises the most filling and important part of the meal. The main course is served after the starters or snacks and is followed by the dessert. It may be made up of a single sumptuous dish, or a combination of a couple of dishes. It is common to find Subzis, curries or Dal served with Roti, parathas or rice as part of the Indian main course recipes.

On the other hand, dishes like biryanis, pasta, pizzas and baked dishes make up one-dish meals. When planning a menu, one must focus on the main course because it leaves a lasting impression on the diners, being the most comprehensive course of the meal. One dish meals are generally easy to make which ensure you never sleep with an empty stomach as they are also quite filling.
