Jain Catering in Sydney

Jain Catering in Sydney

Taj Indian Restaurant is a 100% Vegetarian Restaurant. Jain Food requirements are taken very seriously amongst all Indian Catering services due to the strict religious restrictions that form the foundations of their dietary requirements. Jainism is an ancient Indian religion which forbids meat consumption and the consumption of fish and eggs based on the principle of non-violence (ahimsa).  Anti-violence practices form the fundamental core of the Jain belief system and which Jain Catering in Sydney must embody as it is extremely crucial to adhere to immaculate food safety and hygiene practices that emphasise using sterile materials to prepare food that has not been in direct contact with meat, fish or eggs.

Jain Vegetarianism also reinforces against the consumption of other root vegetables and anything that grows under the ground such as potatoes, onion, garlic, and mushroom as they are believed to grow in non-hygienic environments. Honey is not consumed because it’s collection process involves disturbance and possible harm to bees. Yoghurt and dairy are not consumed either (Lacto-vegetarianism) due to bacterial life forms that thrive in it. For this reason, some Jains don’t consume food that has been stored overnight and fermented foods as the microorganisms reproduce and increase in number as hours pass e.g. yeast. The strictest of Jains do not consume salt or unfiltered water either. So it becomes evident very early that Jain Catering in Sydney presents a highly comprehensive and challenging process.

The Jain diet is highly lentil and chickpea based and places a huge emphasis on rice, bread, and herbs such as Fenugreek, Green Cardamon, and Turmeric. Common Jain dishes include ‘Jain Dum Biryani’ which is a mixture of rice tossed in various aromatic herbs and spices that add colours and flavour due to a limited taste palette. Jain Cholar Pooriyan is also a popular choice served by Jain Catering in Sydney and consists of a rich semi-dry chickpea curry served with fried circular bread that turns gold and crisp when served fresh.

Although Jain Vegetarianism is on the stricter sectors of the vegetarian dining experience, Jain Catering in Sydney has evolved with the aid of technology and best hospitality practices to keep presenting new varieties to its clientele.
