Vegan Chef Ravi G. Dadlani grew up in Mumbai, India. After he graduated from college in 1988, he started work in Taiwan, also known as Formosa, and has been living in Taiwan ever since. With encouragement from his relatives and friends, he opened the first all-vegan bakery café, “Fresh Bakery and Café,” in Taipei, Formosa in 2012. Then in 2016, he relocated the cafe to a more convenient location and renamed it as "Vegan Taipei." Let’s now watch Chef Ravi make an authentic Indian cuisine step by step. "Today, we are going to cook the most common dish in the Indian household: Mixed Vegetable Curry Rice & Indian Masala Chai." "In our busy daily life, we do not have time to cook food everyday. So today, we will be preparing a big pot of curry that could be stored in the fridge for up to 2-3 days. So now, we’ll start preparing the food." "Now we have finished dicing all the vegetables." "First, we heat the oil a little bit on medium to low fire. And we start putting in all the spices: the curry powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, salt, turmeric, and red chili powder. We sauté this for about two minutes." "Notice the spices are starting to get a little bit brownish, so it’s about time to start adding the other ingredients, but we need to add them one at a time." "We need to constantly stir it every two minutes or so, so that it doesn’t burn at the base." "The portion of the gravy and the vegetables has to be 1:1 when serving. This is the best way to eat curry." Now, vegan chef Ravi is going to show us how to make a delicious vegan Indian milk tea, known as Masala Chai, using Indian spices. "We are going to cook vegan Indian masala chai. The ingredients are nutmeg, dried ginger, cloves, cardamom, black pepper, and cinnamon…"
