Probably shouldn't have rated this because I used the recipe to make chicken stock, not veal. However, it's a nice balance of ingredients and could be used in Hindu cooking (see hnpatel321's comment).

As a hindu I don't eat beef or veal... where recipes call for using veal stock, what would make the best alternative?
