Vegetarian recipes for shelter and home animals
can adjust to a vegetarian diet quite easily, particularly if they begin on such a diet as puppies. In addition to the following recipes, they can be fed items such as bread, roti, grains, rice, pasta, porridge, lentils/beans, pulses/dals, milk, curd, cheese, paneer, tofu, rusks, corn, beetroot, carrots, potatoes, apples, bananas, etc.
can also be kept vegetarian. They can be given the same dogs. Supplements such as Marmite (to be mixed in their food), Threptin biscuits, Veg Pedigee pellets, Complan and non-animal origin Taurine powder are more important in a cat’s diet as compared to a dog’s diet.
Do not feed them chocolate, almonds or tomatoes.
Vegetarian Dog Biscuits
The following recipe was specially formulated for BWC by the Protein Foods & Nutrition Development Association of India:
480 grams de-fatted Soy bean flour
160 grams Wheat/gehu flour
160 grams Millet/bajra flour
160 grams Maize/makai flour
20 grams edible Oil 10 grams skimmed Milk powder
5 grams dried Yeast powder
5 grams Salt
The mix may be cooked with sufficient water and made into small chunks or rolled out into chapattis and
baked as biscuits.
Khichadi with Soy Chunks
For one dog
200 grams Rice
100 grams Moong dal
125 grams Soy chunks
1 Carrot, Cauliflower, Onion (all optional)
1 teaspoon whole Barley (optional in summer)
In about 1½ litres of water cook the above for about 30 minutes.
Nutritious Broth with Rice or Rotis
For approximately 40 dogs
Vegetables like Carrots, Spinach/Palak saag, French beans, Potatoes or Cabbage
4 - 5 tablespoons Mustard oil
500 grams chopped Onions
100 grams chopped Garlic
3 - 4 tablespoons Turmeric/Haldi powder
Heat the oil for 10 minutes. Add the cut onion and garlic and stir till very light brown. Add the cut vegetables and slow fry for 10 minutes, after adding the turmeric/haldi powder. Add salt. Add 4-5 litres of water, cover the lid, and allow it to cook till vegetables are tender and soup looks presentable. Keep it aside.
The base of the tadka, i.e., the mustard oil, garlic, onion, salt, turmeric/haldi, is mandatory. So are the potatoes.
Khichadi or atte ki roti is added to the above soup, which is mixed well, and then distributed to the dogs in their individual dishes, ensuring that there is enough soup for easy mastication.
Khichadi: 2 kilograms rice and 2 kilograms moong daal or channa daal (both are pulses) are boiled in water with some salt and turmeric/haldi to a soft semi-dry consistency.
Atte ki roti: These are flat ‘bread’ made of wheat/gehu flour and cooked over fire on top of a flat saucepan-like utensil. Approximately between 80 to 100 rotis are cooked for one meal and broken into pieces and mixed into the vegetable soup, again ensuring that there is enough soup for easy mastication.
Either of the two is used in the soup to add variety to the food.
