    My niece, home from college for the holidays, switched from vegetarian to vegan…. No cheese! I can cook great Italian food if I can only use cheese. What to do… what to do. So happy I found your blog. I love Indian food; it’s my favorite. Niece not too fond of Indian, but who knows if there is even decent Indian food up at Binghamton, NY? So she may not have experienced good Indian food. At any rate, so many ideas for nicely spiced food, which is kind of like fusion. I can’t imagine she would not enjoy so many of these recipes. Printing them out and will start cooking them immediately as she is home for another two weeks. Very inventive recipes.


    • Richa

      Thats awesome! Yes, try some of the indian fusion meals that use spices in meal types that she likes and go from there. Eventually try my butter tofu. Good luck!

    These all look great. I am so excited about your new cookbook! I cannot wait to get it in my kitchen and use it daily <3


  4. Rita Johnson

    I bought your book from Amazon and love it. I just discovered your blog. How do I get the receipts? Any help would be appreciated. I love vegan Indian food but am new at cooking it. Thanks.


    • Richa

      Hi Rita. All the recipes are on the posts. If you scroll down, there is a box which has the recipe and a print button. You can use the print button to print the recipe out if needed.
