Jain customs require them to follow strict rules regarding what and when they eat. In general, ingredients like onion, garlic, potatoes and other root vegetables are totally avoided by Jains. This often makes people think that their cuisine is uninteresting, which is not so. Most dishes, ranging from traditional to modern, can be prepared tastily without using these ingredients. You just need to know the proper substitutes and intelligent methods of preparing the dishes.
This section opens up a world of Jain-friendly recipes ranging from all-time favourites like Paneer Tikka Masala and Jain Pav Bhaji to must-try treats like Quick Paneer Subzi and Sev Tameta. Lose yourself in the tongue-tickling treats that this section holds in store for you.
Paneer Tikka Masala : Juicy green peas and chunky paneer are coated with a peppy mix of veggies and spice powders to make a tongue-tickling treat! A flavourful marinade of assorted spice powders and dried fenugreek leaves makes the succulent cubes of paneer quite exciting to bite into, while a readily-available Jain tomato ketchup helps bind the many wonderful ingredients of the Paneer Tikka Masala together in a convenient way.
