Have you ever tried Jain food?
No, I haven’t. What is Jain food?
Jain food is a type of vegetarian cuisine that follows principles of non-violence and compassion. Jain food is mainly plant-based, filled with vegetables, fruits, grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds.. root vegetables like onions, garlic, and potatoes are excluded. Jains believe that uprooting these plants harms them.
Interesting. What can we eat in a Jain restaurant?

Are these dishes spicy? I can’t handle too much spice.
Jain food is usually mild in spice. You can ask the restaurant to make it less spicy if you prefer.
That’s good to know. Is there anything else I should keep in mind when ordering Jain food?
Yes, you should avoid dishes that contain onions, garlic, or root vegetables. Also, some Jain’s do not eat after sunset, so the restaurant may close early.
