Thank you for stopping by!
As the course title mentions, this course is about cooking oil-free vegan food. I have been passionate about cooking for over 10 years now, and have experienced tremendous health benefits on shifting to a no-oil vegan diet.
I live in the UK, and I spent the first 25 years of my life in India. My first preference of food is Indian, and I realised that Indian food could be easily tweaked to meet vegan requirements, when I first turned vegan in December 2014.
This course will teach you to make 3 fantastic Indian meals, all of them being completely vegan, and made without the use of oil. I have been making healthy food for family and friends, who are all pleasantly surprised to know great food can also be healthy!
This course has at least 6 chapters devoted to help you understand the key techniques used in Indian cooking, and the different ingredients and cookware that you need to make these meals. Your journey will not stop with these 3 meals, the techniques taught in this course will empower you to experiment and cook many more dishes.
I would like to remind you that this course is probably about the price of a meal for two at a restaurant (or lesser!), but has enough content and information to help you build your culinary skills for a lifetime. Hence, your return on investment is guaranteed by the time you complete making the meals in the course – learning to cook oil-free vegan food is an additional bonus for a lifetime!
Hope you have a great time learning and cooking some great food!

Get to learn one of the most important techniques in Indian cooking. This is a fat-free version of the usual method that uses fat for frying.
Learn this technique, and you'll be able to survive anywhere in the world!
This is one of the most important techniques in the course - absolutely essential to make vegan / vegetarian curries, without the use of oil or fat.
You are no longer a novice at Indian cooking, when you finish learning this technique.
Probably the easiest (and the tastiest) Indian dish you will ever make!
Dal - the ultimate comfort food! oil-free, vegan, gluten-free, and lots of protien!
Lemon rice - a south Indian legend!
Use the gravy you made earlier to make tomato rice. Easy to make, and extremely flavourful!
Mango lassi - the vegan way!
oil-free, guilt-free vegan omelettes!
Chole (chickpeas curry) - a Punjabi classic, made the healthy way!
Easy to make, and great food to have with dal or curry!
Hello, I am a passionate food enthusiast and home chef for over 10 years now, regularly churning out lovely home-made meals for 15+ guests.
I turned vegan in December 2014, and have been one since then. A few months later, in April 2015, I also completed a course on ‘Plant based nutrition’ from Cornell University. The course offered me brilliant perspectives on plant based nutrition, and my fundamental outlook on food and nutrition has changed ever since.
I have now combined my passion for cooking great food, with my recently found 'moment of truth', to create exciting zero oil vegan food.
Looking forward to make some great courses on low-fat vegan food for the Udemy community.
