Jain Osaman

Jain vegetarian diet is practiced by the followers of Jain culture and philosophy. It is one of the most rigorous forms of spiritually-motivated diet on the Indian subcontinent and beyond. The Jain cuisine is completely vegetarian and also excludes anything that is grown underground like onions, potatoes, carrots, radishes, yam, garlic etc.  Inspite of this Jain food is extremely tasty and flavoursome.
Jain objections to the eating of meat, fish and eggs are based on the principle of non- violence (ahimsa).
