There are many religious movements in India where no animal products are eaten. Most Indian restaurants are therefore familiar with the vegan phenomenon, although they will not call it that themselves. It is therefore rarely a problem to get a dish without animal products in an Indian restaurant.

As a vegan it is wise to pay attention. Paneer, for example, is sometimes confused with tofu, but is actually a type of cheese. In addition, Indian cuisine uses a lot of ghee (clarified butter). There is also vegetable ghee, but there is little chance that it will be used. Naan bread contains yogurt or milk. It is often the case that a curry is topped with a scoop of yogurt or curd. So indicate in advance that you do not eat dairy.
