Jain Recipes, Jain Food, Jain Dishes

Jain recipes. Jain food recipes.  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 jain 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!

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.
