Jain cuisine is one of the most disciplined forms of spiritually motivated food that is completely vegetarian. 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, there are many restaurants that cater to such foodies. So, check out this list of 8 places serving the best Jain food in town! 

1. Suruchi Restaurant

Suruchi Restaurant is famous for serving vegetarian food including Jain, Rajasthani and North Indian thalis. The service here is great so if you’re looking for shudh (pure) vegetarian food then this is the place to go. The best bit is that Suruchi is quite pocket-friendly as well! The Maharaja, South Indian, Punjabi, Gujarati and Rajasthani thalis here start at just Rs 385. Cool!
