    1. Jalepenos are pickled chillies. They are long ,mild chillies cut in slices and dipped in vinegar.It is used as a pickle and tastes good when added as topping on pizzas, salads n sandwiches

    1. Cheese can be jain – there are various kinds of cheese available in the market and most of them are processed in a manner which we can have. However if you still insist, paneer is an alternative or I will also provide a recipe to create cheese at home.
