A day of content is one when you have an early dinner and a calm time later lazing around with family, friends or with your favourite hobby before you hit the bed. That is also the best way to digest the food that we have had. Hence it is always good to eat light during dinner time such that the body is not heavy with undigested food when you sleep. Having a dinner free of dairy products will be lighter on tummy and aids in faster digestion.
Having no paneer, yogurt or cream in the recipes for a meal needs to be compensated for proteins and calcium through either substitute ingredients or through the other meals of the day. We have handpicked 7 such complete meals where there is no added dairy products and there is vegan option to make them. Try making the complete meal that includes a dry sabzi, gravy dish, an Indian bread or rice and an Indian vegan dessert. You can skip the desserts if you are planning to make a choice of this menu on a weekday or you are a calorie watcher. Use a few drops of oil to roast the parathas given, instead of ghee to make the Indian breads vegan as well. You can use coconut oil also to replace ghee where you need to grease a bit for the recipe like aam papad to set.
