Because the struggle is real
Cravings tend to get unbearable at times and when they do, this Navratri you can feast on these delicious vegetarian dishes. Heres presenting to you a list of vegetarian dishes that are just as good, if not better than the non-vegetarian counterparts.
Mr. Batliwalas Patra Ni Paneer @ The Bombay Havelli, Charni Road
Don't be pale around the gills if you crave some fish. Head to Charni Road, bang opposite the station is this lovely palatial style inspired restaurant: The Bombay Havelli feat on Mr. Batliwala's Patra ni Paneer. Fillet like cottage cheese is enveloped in green chutney marinade and neatly wrapped in leaves. It's cooked just enough for it to be tender and slightly succulent. If you love Patra Ni Mach, this is the closest you can get.
Crispy Aromatic Mock Duck @ Umame, Churchgate
Mr Batliwalas Patra Ni Paneer at The Bombay Havelli
Duck meat is pretty exotic and Umame at Churchgate is the place to try it out sans the guilt. Done just as beautifully as an actual duck, the Crispy Aromatic Mock Duck is served with Mandarin Pancakes and Hoisin Sauce.
Panko Crusted Bhavnagari Chillies @ True Tramm Trunk, Juhu
Cheese Stuffed Bhavnagiri Chillies at True Tramm Trunk, Juhu
Okay, maybe not exactly a dish that has a nonveg variant, but this is a mouthwatering treat that goes very well with your tharra cocktails at True Tramm Trunk.
Soya Keema Tikka Burger @ Above & Beyond, Andheri
Soya Keema Tikka Burger at Above & Beyond
Who says vegetarian burgers are bad? This meatless burger has a soya keema patty. It's just as good as any other non-vegetarian version. This hearty burger is made using fresh ingredients and makes for a rather healthy choice!
Eggplant Schnitzel@Imbiss, All Outlets
Who couldve possibly thought of this? The meating joint famous for its Chorizo Rice, Beef Burgers, and Bratwursts serves a sumptuous yet comforting Eggplant Schnitzel for the rather rare vegetarian patrons. Slices of eggplant (aubergine or brinjal) are crumbed and fried until crisp golden.
Reshmi Soy Champ @ Turban Tales, Powai
