What a blast of flavours and textures! The combination of fried noodles, boiled noodles and sautéed veggies gives this recipe a wide range of textures, while a medley of sauces gives it an exhilarating flavour.

This recipe does not use boiled veggies. Raw veggies are simply sautéed with salt for a few minutes and added to the sauce, in order to retain their crunch and natural flavour. This is a totally Jain -friendly recipe, but when you taste it you will never find out that it does not have ginger, onions or garlic.

Serve this Jain-friendly American Chopsuey immediately upon preparation, in order to enjoy the crispness of the fried noodles and the juicy crunch of the veggies.

Corn and Cheese Quesadillas , Lebanese Minty Rice Soup , Mexican Vegetable Faheeta , Olive and Tomato Pasta and Spinach and Cottage Cheese Quiche are a few other Jain-friendly international recipes.

Tomato ketchup has garlic in it. Even in the link it says so. This isn''t a pure Jain recipe.
