It’s known for being India’s tech capital, but Bengaluru is also arguably the country’s best city for vegetarians and vegans, with a truly vibrant meat-free dining scene. From buttery dosas drenched in coconut chutney to fluffy idli dipped in mild yet addictive sauces, South Indian snack food is luscious and languid, with flavours that sing of the Keralan coast and spicing as mellow as Goa trance music. Hajra Ahmad shot the colourful feature, here showing vegan cheese pizza with tofu and house sauce made at Carrots restaurant.
