If you are looking for an Indian inspired Thanksgiving menu to serve your guests, I have got you covered with these Indian vegetarian recipes. I got introduced to Thanksgiving only after I moved to the US. My favorite thing about this holiday has to be the food, and I love incorporating Indian flavors to almost everything I make.
While many traditional sides on Thanksgiving like mashed potatoes, roasted carrots etc. are vegetarian, in this menu you will find some flavorful mains like the vegetable paneer lasagna or the roasted whole cauliflower tikka. The sides include apple chutney and tikka masala mac and cheese (look for mac and cheese recipe on my Instagram page, the whole recipe for this is shared in the captions with the video there).
Putting an Indian spin on desserts is something I absolutely love and the masala chai cheesecake and gulab jamun tiramisu are the best example of when Indian flavors meet western desserts. All those wonderful spices in the masala chai cheesecake make it the perfect Thanksgiving dessert.

Roasted butternut squash is tossed with pears, walnuts, dried cranberries and drizzled with a creamy dressing made with tahini, maple syrup and olive oil. The pomegranates on top add to the festive touch!
These Tandoori Mushrooms have a cheesy and spicy filling and are baked to golden perfection in the oven. They are then cooked over direct heat until a little charred for that smoky flavor! Makes a great vegetarian appetizer for just about any occasion.
Layers of rose flavored mascarpone cheese topped with coffee soaked gulab jamun, dusted with cocoa powder and garnished with edible gold leaves and pistachios, this Gulab Jamun Tiramisu makes a delightful festive dessert!
