  2. Gr8 recipes, JFI you might not know, but aloo or any underground veg, dosent come in Jain category.

  3. Yes. I know, but generally, here dishes without onion or garlic is specified as jain dish. That's it. Actually jains substitute raw banana for aloo. Even they make bondas using raw banana.
