The word ‘vegetable’ as described in the dictionary usually means an edible plant or a part of a plant other then a sweet fruit or seed. This meaning of the word is based largely on cultural and traditional culinary usage. Tubers, Roots, leaves, stems, fruits etc that are used for culinary preparations are therefore classified as “Vegetables”

Vegetables are consumed in a variety of ways, i.e. as part of a main meal or as side dishes, salads and snacks. The nutritional content of different vegetables vary considerably. However, they are all contain vitamins, proteins, fiber, minerals, carbohydrates, etc in varying degrees. Some vegetables also have antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and anti- carcinogenic properties. Vegetables are easily digestible, as they are low in fat and calories. They are also a good source of dietary fiber which is good for roughage. The minerals and nutrients in vegetables supply the body with necessary energy and vitality. Consuming Vegetables regularly,   also helps in maintaining ideal body weight as they are low in fat, calories, and sodium and help in preventing various diseases.

Besides being healthy and nutritious, vegetables are very versatile and can be prepared in a variety of ways either as a curry or as a dry dish. They can also be eaten raw or just boiled or steamed. Vegetables can also be combined with dhal and pulses. The preparation of vegetable dishes should be kept simple so as to keep all the nutrients intact. Vegetables should not be overcooked or they become soggy.

Vegetarianism is now becoming second nature to a lot of people who voluntarily give up eating meat for a variety of reasons. Vegetarian cooking comprises a number of other ingredients apart from vegetables, such as cottage cheese or paneer, pulses, legumes, soya chunks, etc.,

The recipes of vegetarian dishes given in this book are simple and very easy to cook besides being extremely tasty. All the recipes in this book are for 6 generous servings. If cooking for a smaller or larger number, the quantities should be adjusted accordingly.
