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.

Subzis/Sabzis are vegetables , pulses/dals cooked with a myriad of spices and tempered with aromatic, flavorful ingredients like cumin/mustard seeds, curry leaves, asafetida. Indian cuisine is vast and food of every region is influenced not only by locally available ingredients but also, cultural background of the community and seasonal availability. The markets are flooded with a number of gourds like bottle gourd, bitter gourd during summers. Whereas with the arrival of monsoon, the markets brim with luscious, green leafy vegetables like spinach, fenugreek leaves, dill leaves.

Winters showcase green garlic, mogri, fresh toovar, yam that are used to make winter special traditional subzis. Vegetables like tomatoes, onion, cucumbers, beetroot are available around the year.

Indian flatbreads like roti, chapatti and parathas are mostly made with wheat flour but, you can also make use of plain flour or multigrain flour. They are usually served with subzis and dals or with accompaniments like achaar and curd. Each region has its specific type of flatbread and indigenous ways of making them. Parathas can be made into different varieties by stuffing them with vegetables or a combination of vegetable and cheese/paneer, seasoned with enough spices to make delectable stuffed parathas.

Cooking in the tandoor is another aspect widely used for making crispy yet soft flatbreads. Tandoori Naan, Tandoori Kulcha, Tandoori Laccha Paratha, Tandoori Missi Roti and Tandoori roti are some popular flatbreads made in a clay pot oven and tastes amazing with North Indian gravies and Mughlai subzis.

You can even enhance the taste by adding various spices, beetroot/ palak puree or sometimes using different flours and leafy vegetables to make delights like Masala Puris Served with Curds and Chunda a common breakfast in Gujarati households. Spinach Puri, Beetroot Puri, Nachni Soya Puri, Phudina Puri are some variants you can try.
