Punjabi cooking includes a wealth of vegetarian and vegan dishes. Around 75% of people in the northern Indian region are vegetarian, and Punjabi cuisine reflects this.
Punjabi cuisine is known for its richness, incorporating a range of ingredients with deep, buttery flavours. Some of the most well-known dishes you’ll find on Indian restaurant menus in the UK originate from Punjab including daal, biryani, and much more.
