    What you are doing is really nice.. Encouraging Jains all over the world! I’ve eaten Jain food all my life and I thank my Parents for it.. My Mom has always made all the Jain western dishes from mexican to chinese to italian, right from my childhood days, so my brother and I never felt we are missing out on anything! Now living in the States, after marriage, to get Jain food outside is difficult but not impossible! I love your site and commend you for what you’re doing in this day and age! Thanks!

    I believe someone posted your recipe on their FB page without giving you credit. Go to the “No Animal Deserves To Die For Ur Taste Buds” community page on FB. Just thought you should know.
