In a previous post I mentioned learning that Indian restaurants may use eggs in their naan. Yesterday, after meeting with the owners of Mayura, I discovered that eggs can also be used as an ingredient for roti.

Mayura, a South Indian restaurant in Culver City, uses eggs in both their naan and roti.

The breads which they serve that are eggless are paratha, puri, and chapathi.

All other vegetarian items on their menu are without eggs, including the ice cream used in desserts. They do not use lard. They state that they have two separate kitchens, one for vegetarian dishes and one for non-vegetarian. The plates and utensils for serving are common to both kitchens.

Here is a list of their vegetarian dishes that are prepared in a separate kitchen:
