Jain cuisine is one of the most disciplined forms of completely vegetarian and spiritually motivated food. And there is a reason behind this ideology as well - Jainism is a religion principled on non-violence. This non-violence is directed towards everything: people, animals and even plants. Did you know that people who follow this religion diligently don’t even eat potatoes and root vegetables?! In Delhi, many restaurants cater to such foodies. So, check out this list of places serving the best Jain food in town!
