Hi Priya,
Jainism, their way of life and their cuisine has always awed me ever since reading about Mahaveer and his followers, I am speechless about the dicipline and strictness in their diet.
Though the cabbage sabji sounds simple, it's a must try good to have saatvik food more often :) Thanks dear.
