Require suggestion for various recipes of strictly non milk product (eg:-milk,cheese, butter, curd etc..) & non spicy.

I need to suggest loads of dishes for my sister who is a vegetarian cannot eat any food with milk products in it as she is suffering from ulceritiscolitis non spicy food.

I was hoping i would get her to taste food without such ingredients.

  1. Any ingredients you want to use? Type of dishes you want to make?
    I can give you loads of ideas, but would be best if you provided some direction.

    1. re: haiku.

      Thanks for replying...not specific about any ingredients. In india our daily meal i.e lunch and dinner is generally wheat Chapathi with cooked vegetables with or without gravy. Along with this i was also looking for some desert. Haiku, i have never cooked in my life, just wanting her to taste some good i have decided to give my shot on cooking. So directing would be difficult. But all i can say is that we stay in the northern part of india which distinguises our eating habbits from southern part of india and anything will do at the moment. I hope the scenario is not misleading. I would appreciate any suggestion from your end. It would be great if you suggest five dishes each and i m sure i would get the reciepe on CHOW.COM...


      Certain types of foods may worsen diarrhea and gas symptoms, especially during times of active disease. Diet suggestions include:

      Eat small amounts of food throughout the day.

      Drink plenty of water (drink small amounts throughout the day).

      Avoid high-fiber foods (bran, beans, nuts, seeds, and popcorn).

      Avoid fatty, greasy or fried foods and sauces (butter, margarine, and heavy cream).

      Limit milk products if you are lactose intolerant. Dairy products are a good source of protein and calcium.


      living in the states i can't be certain my market and yours carry the same stuff, lol. however, it seems as though steamed or roasted low-fiber veggies, like mushrooms, eggplants and tomatoes, and eggs need to become staples in her diet. will she eat eggs? or do we mean vegan? small amounts of olive or coconut oil, and ghee as garnishes.

      1. Tadka dal is always flavorful and comforting. The hing in the tadka should also aid digestion, but make sure not to add chilies. Mjadara, rice and lentils, will also be flavorful, as well as offer needed protein and nutrition. You can continue cooking vegetable curries, but do not add chili and try to use a minimum of oil as this might also irritate her system.
