Jain Naashta recipes
Life without snacks would be real boring. They make a party snazzy, help beat sudden hunger strikes and always make tea-time more interesting. Working within the rules of Jainism, it is possible to make scrumptious snacks like Cheesy Cornflakes, Chana Dal Seekh Kebab, Capsicum Rings, etc.
Perfect Chana Dal Seekh Kebab, made with the ideal proportions of chana dal, raw banana and chopped cabbage, excitingly flavoured with mint, green chillies and spice powders, can be served as a starter or as an accompaniment to tea. What makes this recipe different from other kebab recipes is that the chana dal is neither soaked not cooked, but roasted and powdered before adding to the dough.
A perfect tea-time snack, these Capsicum Rings are made by deep-frying capsicum rings coated with a plain flour batter that is aptly perked up with black pepper. A sprinkling of chaat masala gives these Jain -friendly crispies a truly snazzy flavour that tickles your taste buds.
