Mumbai’s fast evolving dining space is witnessing some interesting fusion food. What’s great is to find that apart from innovative non-vegetarian dishes, chefs are cooking up some fun vegetarian food too. And clearly so, anything non-meat doesn’t have to be boring. If you’re one of those fasting because of Shravan, here is a list of dishes from the vegetarian menu of Mumbai restaurants. Give it a try?
Vegetarian waffle @ Le15 Cafe, Colaba
You have eaten waffles, but have you tried the vegetarian waffle at Pooja Dhingra’s Le 15 Cafe? Topped with sautéed veggies and toasted nuts and seeds, it surely is a match made in heaven.
Never Ending Story @ Chemistry 101, Lower Parel
Expect a spicy mixed vegetable roll, Cafreal ravioli with a chilli gazpacho cold lava flowing out. This dish makes for a beautiful sight for the eyes and is perfect for those who love everything spicy.
Nutty Spaghetti @ The Nutcracker, Fort
Far away from the world of Spaghetti Bolognese is a dish that needs special mention. The Nutty Spaghetti at The Nutcracker is a simple aglio oglio pasta flavoured and topped with shaved roasted almonds. Trust us, you wouldn’t miss the meat.
Asparagus and Water Chestnut Kurma @ Farzi Café, Lower Parel
The asparagus and water chestnut kurma is a must-try for vegetarians who are looking for something offbeat. Pair it with piping hot coconut appams, you may want to keep the meat aside for once.
Bhavnagri Mirch Veg Mutton Salan @ The Bombay Canteen, Lower Parel
Yes, you heard that right. The Bhavnagari vegetarian mutton salan at The Bombay Canteen has got nothing to do with meat. The hero here is the jackfruit, which is cooked in a Hyderabadi-style peanut and coconut curry alongwith grilled chillies.
