Jain Recipes, Jain Food, Jain Dishes

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. Dry snacks like khakhra and papad poha can be made in bulk and store in an air-tight container. A cup of masala chai with a scrumptious snack is surely a match made in heaven!

Jain Soups

A soup can be anything from an appetizer to snack or even a full meal. When it comes to the job of appetizing, nothing performs better than soups. They are generous with the spices and can be made using any ingredients from vegetables to dal or a combination of both. They leave a really warm taste on your palate and are extremely comforting. Here are some lovely Jain-friendly soups like the Cream of Tomato soup, Moong Soup and Cucumber and Lettuce Soup that will tantalize your taste buds!

Jain Main Course

The main course is generally a flatbread (roti, paratha, puri) along with subzi, a bowl of dal/kadhi and rice. Along with that a side of Pickles / Chutneys / Raita / Salad perk up the meal and leave you with exciting, contrasting flavors. Snacks come in handy and make a party snazzy, help beat hunger strikes and are easy to prepare. Jain Naashtas like capsicum rings, corn pakodas, Rice and Cheese Balls are some tongue-tickling delights you can munch on. Our section of Jain Roti and Jain Subzi gives you a wide choice of rotis and parathas, subzis so you can make a different combination each day. Have a go at delectable options like the Cabbage and Paneer Parathas, Green Pea Parathas, Kela Methi Nu Shaak, Sev Tameta.

Complete your meal with this delectable Baked Layered Coconut Rice with Curry which has a soothing flavour and pleasantly spicy aroma or Ges, an authentic Jain preparation of curd and rice topped with methia no masala. Also, khichdi made with a myriad of ingredients is a comforting dinner option. One dish meals made with rice are wholesome and satisfying, try our Jain Rice recipes to explore more options that can be enjoyed with Jain Dals Kadhi.

Popular street foods of Mumbai can be easily made into Jain versions like the Jain Vada Pav, Jain Pav Bhaji where the potato is substituted with raw banana and are just as awesome as the original, and you will not find anything amiss! Not just Indian, international recipes too can be made Jain friendly. Try your hands on Baked Rajma and Macaroni with Cottage Cheese Balls, Vegetable Fried Rice, American Chopsuey, Cheesy Pepper Rice.
