Super vegetarian and vegan Indian food that will have carnivores wondering if they have been missing a trick.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The home of Indian vegetarian food is Gujarat – birthplace of Ghandi – and inspiration for Annakut, which brought its vegan and vegetarian cooking to Newington two years ago. The menu is full of subtle, health-conscious dishes where the use of oil and buttery sauces is kept to a minimum. Some allegedly have medicinal properties like kaju karela – fried bitter gourd – which is said to be good for cleansing the gut. The dhal makhani – smoked black lentils in a light, creamy sauce – is easily mopped up with a choice of equally light, well-cooked naans, as is the sweetly spiced ringan no oro (mashed grilled aubergines). A bowl of Annakut royal biriyani with fragrant basmati rice, loaded with fresh beans, cashews, ginger and saffron, is almost a meal in itself and perfect for sharing. And fear not if you're not a fan of ultra-spicy food; aside from the tangy veg kohlhapuri, the dishes tend to be on the mild side.
