A Vegetarian’s Guide To Asian Food

Just look up the words ‘food home delivery near me’, and you’ll find a range of restaurants dotting the city, serving up a variety of cuisines. But despite all these choices, food home delivery in Bangalore does not have a ton of vegetarian options. This holds especially true for Asian food, which most people believe is a fairly meat-intensive cuisine.

But did you know that traditional Asian cuisine actually comprises a number of vegetable-based dishes? So if you’re looking to place a vegetarian  Asian lunch order online in Bangalore, we’ve got you covered! From stir fries to Thai curries and rice bowls, here’s a handy little guide of our veggie-friendly favorites.

Thai Panang Vegetable Curry

If you can’t decide between curry and peanut sauce, why not opt for both! The Thai Panang Vegetable Curry is a creamy coconut gravy, mixed with veggies, tofu, peanuts, and spices. The addition of sesame oil adds a uniquely nutty flavor, making it an absolute favorite for the Indian palate. Panang Curry is best served with steaming hot rice.

Dim Sum

Dim Sum are small, bite-sized portions of steamed buns, cooked in miniature bamboo steamer baskets. They can be either flavorful, bland, or even sweet, depending on the filling inside.Traditionally, Dim Sum were eaten only on  weekends during brunch. Now, however, they’re a popular anytime snack. So the next time you’re looking to order snacks online in Bangalore, we recommend a basket of  Dim Sum to satisfy your munchies.

Laksa

Laksa is a spicy noodle soup, originating in China and Malaysia. Today, however, Laksa is popular around the world. Its unique taste can be attributed to the combination of different sweet (coconut) and sour (lemongrass or citrus) flavors. Some prefer their Laksa watery like a soup, while others like it as thick as possible. Although ingredients can vary widely in each different Laksa, the essential elements are thick noodles, a coconut-based curry sauce, tofu, and bean sprouts.

Nasi Goreng

Nasi Goreng is a very simple but popular dish across Asia, mostly because rice is a staple in most  Asian countries. It is mainly cooked with coconut sauce or saffron and a variety of veggies. The rice is primarily fried with vegetable oil, soya-sauce, garlic, shallots, and then garnished with other spices. Dig into a pot of Nasi Goreng – either on its own or accompanied by curry of your choice!

Singapore-Style Rice Noodles

Singapore-Style rice noodles, oddly enough, originated in Hong Kong and not Singapore. This delicious stir-fry of rice and vermicelli is prepared by seasoning with a delicious mix of Indian curry powder and fresh vegetables. Interestingly, Singaporean food has some Indian influence and it’s actually the curry powder that gives the thin rice noodles a beautiful yellow hue. Much like its namesake, Singapore, these rice-noodles also represent a melting pot of various different cultures!

Vegetarian Pho

Vegetarian Pho or Vietnamese Noodle Soup is as healthy as a bowl of chicken soup, but minus the chicken. Cinnamon, cloves, anise, and tamari make this soup fragrant and give it a unique taste. A hot bowl of rice noodles, fresh herbs, and bean sprouts swimming in a fragrant broth – sounds tempting doesn’t it? No wonder it is the national soup of Vietnam.
