About the Author

Richa Hingle grew up in India, where everyday food was vegetarian, with a focus on legumes, grains, nuts, and vegetables. Eating fresh, local, wholesome foods was a way of life. Today, she is the prolific and award-winning recipe developer, blogger, and photographer behind the very popular VeganRicha.com. She has a large community of followers who love making her recipes and sharing them with friends.

Richa's instructions are easy to follow and her step-by-step photographs encourage anyone to learn how to make great Indian food. Her eBook Indian Vegan Diwali Sweets was wildly successful because of her ability to create vegan versions of Indian deserts that were previously deemed too difficult. Richa lives, writes, and cooks in Seattle, Washington.

Vegan Richa's Cook books


Purchased cook books as a gift for Christmas. Very happy with purchase.

I purchased this book after trying the Tofu Butter Masala recipe on Richas blog, excited to try more of her Indian recipes. Since purchasing I have cooked so many things from it- It has become a household favourite! While some of the recipes look long they really aren't hard - most of it is just a long spice list & they are so worth it! Super tasty and super fun to create- would definately recommend!



My new favourite cookbook


This is my new favourite cookbook! Richa's recipes have transformed my Indian cooking. I have learnt so much about spices and techniques and I am looking forward to using this book many times again. My husband says the meals I have made from this book are all restaurant quality. I have found the ingredients to be easily accessible, the recipes much easier than I expected, and the outcomes are sensational. There are recipes here for simple everyday meals, but also dinner party dishes which will appeal to anyone who likes Indian food. The recipes are healthy, mostly low fat (with options e.g. to bake or fry) and they are also very flavoursome and delicious. My favourite recipes include: Onion Chilli Fritters with Tamarind Chutney, Red Lentil Soup, Assamese Greens and Potatoes, Butternut Coconut Red Lentil Curry, Mango Curry Tofu, Potato Veggie Balls in Garlic Fenugreek Sauce, Butter Curry Seitan, Rainbow Chard and Peas in Creamy Sauce, Tofu in Spinach Curry, Puffy Restaurant-Style Naan, Dosas with Masala Potatoes and Coconut Chutney and more. I also love the desserts including the Gulab Jamun, Sandesh and Pistachio Cardamom Cookies. I highly recommend this book.
