Chawli Bean SubziChawli Bean Subzi

Many seeded vegetables like eggplant (baingan) are avoided as they are considered to be the carriers of new life, owing to the fact that they have many seeds. Even though not all Jains shun eggplant, this is the general thought process behind eliminating such ingredients. Similarly, green leafy vegetables are also avoided during "chaturmaas" ie a holy observance period coinciding with the monsoon season, as the chances of mistakenly eating micro-organisms increases.

Certain other things that are avoided by Jains observing a strict diet is the mixing of raw milk and pulses or eating leftover food the next day. All these rules have the same reasoning of non-violence and balanced lifestyle behind it. Even though these rules exist, not many adhere to it strictly as they only avoid onion, potato and garlic. Strict observance is not forced, but is encouraged.
