About No Onion Garlic Food
India with it's rich cultural heritage has so many variations in it's language, costumes and dressing, customs and religious practices. With so many variations due to geography/landscape, customs and religious practices there are bound to be variations in food also.
Many Indian communities avoid onion and garlic in food. There are many auspicious days/month like Shraavan month when many people follow a no onion garlic diet. There are also festivals where people fast ( Shivratri, Navratri, Janmashtami) and avoid grains and cereals like wheat, rice, many legumes and cook food without onion and garlic.
Many people also avoid spicy, heavy curries with onion and garlic in summers due to high heat which disturbs the digestive system.
Why No Onion No Garlic Recipes
As mentioned above other than the religious reasons that people follow a sattvic diet., many follow Ayurveda style of living. As per Ayurveda, onion and garlic along with various meats and few other vegetables effect the constitution of our body and increase the body heat.
