One might believe that the scale is tipped towards non-vegetarians in this city, but believe you us, there are vegetarian restaurants in Delhi with equally delish menus, catering to all takers. Here we have some of our favourite places that veggie lovers, and those curious about vegetarian food, could and should try out.

Carnatic Café

You can barely go wrong when ordering at Carnatic Café, but we usually opt for the Maleshwaram 18th Cross Dosa or the ghee roast, washed down with their tangy lemon soda or buttermilk. They also have an impressive variety of rice {lemon, tamarind, mustard}.

Veg Gulati

One of the oldest {and perhaps best} options in the city for vegetarians, Veg Gulati woos with its offerings, including the usual fare such as dal makhani, along with dishes like tandoori mushrooms and a very popular Amritsari Churchur Parantha. The restaurant’s open till 1am, in case you’re looking for a late-night meal.

Sattviko

Sattviko has the balance between health and taste worked out to the T. Choose from options including sandwiches, chole kulche, rice bowls, burritos, salads, pastas, and some pre-set five-course meals. End the meal on a sweet note with a walnut brownie or srikhand.

Panchvati Gaurav

If you’re nursing a very large appetite and want to go all out, we suggest a visit to Panchvati Gaurav. Their thalis include a welcome drink, snacks, vegetables, rice, khichri, dal, papad, salad, pickle and even three different types of sweets. You can also  chew on some paan for an extra INR 30.

Naivedyam

Start your meal at Naivedyam with stacks of papad and glasses of hot rasam. Indulge in steaming hot dosas, tomato rice or, better still, opt for the thali and keep those hunger pangs at bay. For dessert, we hear their Kesari Bhath sells like hot cakes.

Kathputli

Go on a Marwari culinary journey at Kathputli; start on a spicy note with the pudinaa paani, dal vada and mirchi pakora. For main course, you can either go the traditional Rajasthani way with the dal, baati and churma, or indulge in some gatta curry, Rajasthani khichri and a choice of vegetables, along with basic accompaniments like salad and papad.

Thaal Vaadi

Perhaps one of the most crowded joints in the Great India Place Mall for its value-for-money meals, the thali here consists of buttermilk {welcome drink}, dal, baati, churma, and vegetarian dishes including paneer makhani and kathal masala, accompanied by rice, salad and roti. Finish with the rich shahi tukda, fruit custard or moong dal halwa.

Cafe Turtle

A book cafe to boot, Cafe Turtle serves the very best of coffees and teas. For a meal, though, we’d recommend their Moroccan Couscous Salad, Shiitake Olivia and their special Gazpacho. Having a wide selection of sandwiches and cakes, this is also the place for tea on a pleasant Sunday evening.

Idliss

A place to hangout for students, Idliss is best known for its economical prices and Depaul’s coffee. A complete meal at lunchtime at the mere cost of INR 70 is no longer just a dream!

We recommend their fried idlis, fresh nimbu soda and Idli Manchurian.

Bhaja Govindam

With an expansive menu, Bhaja Govindam is the perfect spot to go to after a movie at Delite. They have an exquisite Idli Platter with a red, green and orange variants {tomato, coriander, kanjivaram}. Apart from the south Indian delicacies, they also have an exhaustive veggie menu, ranging from paneer to aloo to gobhi. We are major fans of their Afghani and cheese pulaos. A must-try, this.

Suruchi

For a Chowki-Dhaani experience in Delhi, we’d recommend Suruchi. With their all-you-can-eat thalis, Suruchi is the gastronomic experience you’ve been waiting for. Apart from the Gatte Ki Subzi, Dal-Baati-Churma, and Bajra Roti, the pao bhaji is pretty mouthwatering, too.

The hospitality here always has us feeling all warm and fuzzy. This is your entry to the world of true vegetarianism.

Devang House

Devang House, in addition to being vegetarian, is also completely organic. Home-made pesto, sun-dried tomatoes and fresh shots of wheatgrass are common here. Also on the menu are Indian and Continental infusions such as the Sweet Potato Burger, Pumpkin Rasam Soup and a beautiful iced-filter coffee.

The Coffee Bond

The Coffee Bond is an all-vegetarian cafe in the Uday Park neighbourhood. They do a bunch of sandwiches, salads and tortillas, but the star of the show here is really the Pumpkin Pesto Pizza. Pair it with their peppermint or chilli-hot chocolate, and you’re all set.
