Jain Roti Recipes

Jain roti recipes. This section gives you a wide choice of such rotis and parathas that even Jains can eat so that they can make a different dish each day. The most basic and most common out of this is the phulka roti or as Gujaratis call it, Rotli. This is had on a daily basis with different subzis like Bhindi or gobi.  Another type of roti is Thepla which is made by adding different masalas to the whole wheat dough and is cooked in oil to make it very soft. A very popular variant of thepla is Methi Thepla.


Usually rotis are made in oil or ghee, but sometimes you can use everyone's favorite, butter, and make Makhani Rotis to eat alongside different subzis. Not only does it taste amazing, but the texture turns out great as well.

Another type of basic roti is the Padvali Roti. This is a pair of really thin chapatis that are usually served with aamras during the summers. The thin rotis are gotten by sticking two small dough balls and rolling them out together to get 2 thin layers.  You can even try adding coriander to the dough to make these beautiful Coriander rotis.

Jain Paratha Recipes

Jain paratha recipes. Parathas are thicker than rotis and are often made with whole wheat dough as well. Usually filled with a stuffing of different vegetables, you can make many Jain variations of it as well. Cabbage and paneer parathas is quite an easy and wonderful dish to make. The succulent paneer with cabbage is a unique way to incorporate protein in your diet along with a wonderful taste. It is jazzed up with coriander and green chillies and tastes best served hot with homemade butter.

Another mouth-watering paratha is the Masala Paratha. Here, instead of adding the masalas to the dough, the masala is stuffed inside the dough. Not only that, the masala is a not usual,  but a unique mix of cumin seeds, hing, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon and chillies. You can also have a go at delectable options like the Green Pea Parathas and Pudina Parathas.
