I called/emailed most of the Charlotte-area Indian restaurants today to see how willing they were to prepare a vegan meal. Woodlands, Situl, Bombay Grill, Copper, and The Blue Taj all said a vegan meal would be no problem! I did clarify that a vegan meal meant no butter, no cream, no paneer, no yogurt. Still waiting to hear back from Saffron and Maharani, but I’m guessing it’s not a problem for them, either! So go out … put your fear of ghee behind you … and enjoy exploring a new cuisine!
