11 Vegetarian Romantic Dinner Ideas Using Kama Foods

Chocolate Fondue

Chocolate Fondue

In Ancient India, special Kama Foods were taken after a romantic dinner. Even today, certain practices such as chewing saunf or fennel after a meal, chewing paan and betel nut after dinner and even drinking warm milk with crushed almonds at bedtime are known to improve ones sex life.

A romantic dinner should be pleasing to all the senses; it should be appealing to look at, aromatic and delicious in taste. Here are a few romantic dinner ideas that use food combinations that will not only please your partner’s taste buds but also prepare the body for the romance to follow. These romantic dinner ideas use ingredients rich in zinc and phosphorous for better sex life. Some of these, such as fennel were also used in concoctions as remedies to boost passion and excitement.

  • 1. Chickpeas Tomato Salad with Honey & Peanuts

Chickpeas aka Chhole are rich kn zinc. These are combined with roasted, crushed peanuts to boost energy and stamina. Tomatoes were known as love apples and had as love potion to increase passion and excitement. They are contain with antioxidant lycopene which is a libido enhance in men and women. Honey has been mentioned in sacred texts like the classic Vatasyayana’s Kamasutra as a magical drink for couples to increase sexual desire. These ingredients combined together along with Asian sesame oil and lemon juice will make a satiating dinner for two in every way.

  • 2. Hummus Platter & Pita

For vegetarians, Kabuli chana or chickpeas is among the richest sources of zinc. Zinc helps boost the male testosterone. It also helps reduction of acne, making your skin more beautiful. Chickpeas are combined with garlic and tahini made of sesame seeds to make hummus. While raw garlic in hummus improves blood circulation, many ancient civilizations used it to heal and increase sexuality and stamina. Tahina is also rich in zinc and great for your skin and hair.

  • 3. Mango Garlic Chili Paneer Sticks – Mexican Style

In Ancient India Mango essence was applied topically on genitals to stimulate desire. That paired with garlic which is known to increase blood flow to both male and female sex organs and boosts libido while chillies added in the dressing are considered a stimulant because they mock reactions similar to sex, like heaviness of breath, heart pounding and as such. Make sure you brush your teeth though, too much garlic breath might be a mood killer!

  • 4. Orange, Fennel & Arugula Salad

The Kamasutra refers to fennels as such, ‘if ghee, honey, sugar and liqorice in equal parts, the juice of a fennel plant and milk are mixed together, the nectar is considered to be holy and provocative of sexual vigor’. Rocket leaves or arugula on the other hand, according to modern research blocks environmental contaminants that negatively impact our libido.

So simply toss some olive oil, orange juice and zest with honey and pepper, both ancient india stimulants, with arugula and orange wedges along with pumpkin seeds and you are good to go for a light romantic supper.

  • 5. Leftover Roti ka Meetha with Almonds & Pomegranate

Almonds are loaded with nutrients, they increase passion, act as a sex stimulant and aid in fertility because they are rich in minerals like zinc. As per Indian tradition the groom is given a glass of warm milk with a handful of crushed raw almonds for his wedding night. This combined with pomegranate, which is a symbol of fertility and love in many ancient cultures and adds to the visual appeal with its reddish pearls is simplest recipe for romance.

  • 6. Chocolate Fondue with Strawberries

Chocolate is loaded with libido boosting methyxanthines. It is a great idea to gift chocolate on a romantic dinner date. Chocolate becomes even sexier when it is melted, dipped in luscious pink strawberry and wiped off with fingers in the end.

Here’s the Recipe

Dark Cooking Chocolate Slab (I used Morde)       250g (1/2 slab)

Cream (packaged)           100ml (1/2 cup)

Cognac (use brandy if cognac is unavailable)        30ml

Dark Rum            30ml

Orange zest (remove shavings from the peel with a zester)         2 teaspoons

Cinnamon Powder          1 teaspoon

To Serve

Strawberry         20

Grapes (I prefer Black grapes)                    1 bunch

Marshmellows                  1 large packet

Sliced Cake, cut into croutons                     1 cake

Method:

Heat a steel bowl with water and bring the water to a boil. Break chocolate into pieces and place the chocolate in a glass bowl that fits over the steel bowl with the boiling water. Melt the chocolate in this double boiler.

Add in cream to the chocolate and stir. Let the chocolate be placed over the hot water but turn off the heat.

Now add in the cognac and rum into the melted chocolate and stir.

Add in the orange zest and cinnamon powder. Stir.

Allow it to stand for a 5 to 7 minutes so the flavor is infused in the chocolate (light the candles meanwhile).

Place a fresh bowl full of hot water under the chocolate fondue and serve with strawberry, black grapes, marshmellows and cake croutons if you like.

  • 7. Makana Matar (Fox nut & Peas) Curry with Roti

Makhana or Fox nut is rich in minerals and is known to increase the quantity and improve the quality of sperm. Makhana tossed in ghee is a specially good snack to boost male fertility and sexuality, particularly in older men. Peas is full of protein and micro nutrients to help boost stamina.

To make makhana matar, simple toss the makhana in some ghee and set aside. Do the same with peas. Make an gravy with ginger, garlic, fried onion and tomato masala. Add in coriander powder, red chilli powder and turmeric powder. Add the sauted peas and makhana into the gravy along with salt. Serve with warm rotis.

We have talked about the properties of garlic that boost your sex life. While the heat and chillies in this desi chinese recipe teases the senses by mimicking similar reactions as sex, like shortness of breat, panting and pounding of the heart. Aside from that it is a filling and delicious meal and your partner and you will enjoy.

  • 9. Watermelon Tomato Chaat with basil & Pumpkin Seeds

Watermelon is now being called a natural Viagra! It is rich in amino acid citrulline, which relaxes and dilates blood vessels like Viagra. In addition to that, both watermelon and tomatoes have lycopene, which are known to boost libido. The salad is made even more refreshing with fresh sweet basil for a fragrant breath afterwards! Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc and know to pump sexual prowess and vigor in the bedroom.

  • 10. Cut Up Banana with Long Pepper & Pepper Cream, Honey & Almonds

Not just for their appearance, bananas are rich in phosphorus, which is good for a healthy sex life and increased sex drive. Long pepper and black pepper with honey was used in ancient india to boost sex drive. This, along with almonds with also give you energy and better stamina, this is a recipe for romantic success.

Here’s a recipe to make Long Pepper cream from the Telegraph UK

5 Indonesian long pepper catkins, snapped, cracked and ground with a pestle and mortar

300ml cream, thick enough to spoon

4 tbsp pure cane brown sugar

5 cardamom seeds, opened and crushed

1 Madagascar vanilla pod, scraped

1 pinch of icing sugar to dust

Mix or whisk the brown sugar, cardamom and vanilla along with the ground long pepper into the cream just before serving.

Sprinkle a little extra sparingly on top at the end and a dusting of icing sugar.

  • 11. Whole Wheat Pasta with Pumpkin Seed & Spinach Pesto

Pumpkin seeds is rich in nutrients, libido boosting vitamins and minerals like zinc that increase your sex drive. This happens to be one of my favorite Martha Stewart recipes. To make this pasta, simple cook the pasta in salted boiling water for 7 to 9 minutes or until it is firm to bite. Combine toasted pumpkin seeds along with baby spinach, parsley, chives, lemon zest, salt, pepper and garlic in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Toss with pasta and cook with1/2 cup of pasta cooking liquid. Garnish with tomatoes and ricotta.
