About

Fussy Vegetarian was started soon after I moved to the US. As a vegetarian from India, I am used to well cooked vegetarian food that has flavor and spice. Unfortunately, vegetarian in the US has a different meaning. Often confused with Vegan, an Indian vegetarian will have a tough time finding food that has taste and isn’t raw green leaves topped with some sauce. Despite the stipulation, I like eating out & trying new cuisines; I keep getting asked, as a vegetarian, what will I eat or what do I eat at restaurants. Through this blog, I answer those questions, at the same time expose vegetarian food that has flavor.

A vegetarian diet isn’t about healthy eating, even vegetarians are fat people. This blog is not focused on the intricacies of cooking but on what vegetarians that don’t like a lot of raw vegetables can eat. Some of the things I really really dislike that make ordering difficult:

  • Mushrooms (it’s the chewy texture, color, and the taste, or lack thereof)
  • Brinjal (it’s a childhood thing)
  • Broccoli (how people can eat this baffles me)
  • Vegetable leaves other than Romaine Lettuce
  • Burger patties made using Soy

Some of my favorite vegetarian dishes are:

  • Punjabi Kadi
  • Paneer Masala (America, seriously, get over Tofu and try Paneer)
  • Dry Spicy Okra (I’ve had Okra prepared in multiple ways, and the way mom cooks it is still the best)
  • Idlis and Sambar (a South Indian combo that is my ideal breakfast. It’s like my boiled eggs/sunny side/egg omelette)

Some fascinating dishes that I’ve come across:

The more recent photos on the blog are shot using my Lumia 920 (or sometimes the iPhone 5), the images are mine unless explicitly said otherwise, I have faith in humanity that no one will use the images without credit. All the articles are published via my phone, so excuse the errors, I usually fix them. You can follow Fussy Vegetarian on:
