Vegan Baking Made Easy with Orgran

This is a problem most vegans face at some point- how to replace egg in cooking. Orgran offers a pretty extensive range of vegan baking mixes and egg replacers. You can bake everything from moist chocolate cakes, brownies, cookies, pastry and shortbread without using any wheat, dairy, egg, yeast or gluten. (They even have a gluten replacer!) 

Orgran is available easily in India in Nature's Basket stores in Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Bengaluru, Hyderabad. The price isn't too bad either- between Rs 210 to Rs 375.

Oreos and (Soy) Milk!


Late night binging would be so difficult if oreos weren't vegan. They may not be the healthiest food in the world but they certainly hit the spot when you're struck by a 3 am dessert craving. I recommend dipping them in a glass of cold Silk Vanilla Soy Milk. Milk and cookies- veganized!

Vegan Momos on a Rainy Day

Momos are the ultimate antidote to a bad day at work, a gloomy monsoon afternoon or a sudden realisation that life sucks. The vegan momos at the Emami market in Calcutta are exactly what a dumpling should be- small, wrapped in a thin outer layer, and served with a super hot sauce! Stuffed with cabbage, ginger and onions, every mouthful reminds me of childhood afternoons spent in Darjeeling

At Rs 40 a plate, this vegan snack is a healthy option compared to its fried counterpart. 

Note to self: Must learn how to make momos at home.
