In spicy news for animal-lovers, St Kilda's Babu Ji  restaurant is about to add an all-you-can-eat vegan feast to its weekly calendar. Every Tuesday from 19 June, you'll be able to settle in for as much curry and cumin-infused rice as you can handle — for just 25 bucks.

Babu Ji's plant-based offerings will vary from week-to-week. Among the dishes you're likely to find are dal makhani — a mix of black lentils, ginger, garlic and garam masala that's cooked for 12 hours — and aloo baingan, an eggplant and potato curry with roasted pine nuts and raisins. As well as being vegan, it's all gluten-free — including the naan (just ask for the GF version).

Apart from the obvious deliciousness, owner Mani Waraich hopes the vegan menu will showcase a new side of Indian cuisine. "We're launching vegan Tuesdays, not only because we should all be eating less meat, but because Indian food has so many vegan options that are so naturally tasty and nutritious," he says.

Your $25 includes all the vegan curry and cumin-infused rice you can eat, as well as a papadum. Plus, all proceeds raised on the first vegan night will go to Sacred Heart Mission.
