Zee Khana Khazana launches ‘Jain Jalsa’

MUMBAI: India is famous for its regional and religious delicacies. And keeping the special section in mind, Zee Khana Khazana has come up with a new show which will focus on Jains’ taste buds.


The show, Jain Jalsa, is hosted by chef Gautam Mehrishi. With the show, the channel aims to showcase Jain food in a new avatar and debunk all myths about the cuisine being bland.


Zee Khana Khazana business head Amit Nair said: “With Jain Jalsa, we want to break the myth that Jain cuisine is all about vegetarian dishes made without onion, garlic or potatoes as portrayed in stereotypes. Jain people are big foodies and have been experimenting with food with whatever ingredients they are permitted to use. We were fascinated by this aspect and wanted to show it to our audiences too. Chef Gautam will take viewers through an exhaustive range of healthy and tasty recipes pertaining to this unique style of food consumption.”


The chef will adapt international dishes (Japanese and Far Eastern to Egyptian and Mediterranean) to a Jain palate and project a healthy, fun way of enjoying Jain dishes. Jain Jalsa covers the entire gamut of cooking while also portraying innovative new Jain recipes without compromising on the basic premise of healthy, satvik food.


Chef Gautam Mehrishi, who also hosts Food ka Mood on Zee Khana Khazana, has a history with Jain food. Having lived in Rajasthan for many years, he has been connected to Jain Food and Jain culture for a long time. Everything he cooks on the show will be absolutely vegetarian, have mild spices and will be all about fresh food.


The series will air thrice a week (Monday/Wednesday/Friday) at 12pm with repeats on Monday Wednesday Friday at 8:30pm.
