Vegetables are an integral part of our food and we consume them in a number of ways. For pure vegetarians India is a heaven. India can boast for its innumerable varieties of tasty and nutritious vegetarian dishes. In India, more people are vegetarians than anywhere else in this planet. Some of the famous indian recipes are Navratan Korma and Shahi Paneer.
