No-Onion No-Garlic

Some religious followers such as vaishnav, jain, some budhists and swaminarayan sect people consume food without onion and garlic. The term satvika often implies Indian food without onion and garlic. Make no mistake, onion and garlic do have medical benefits but for spiritual beliefs, some people avoid using it. In addition to a vegetarian diet, followers do not consume onion and garlic because these substances induce the rajas and tamas gunas, which are known to lead to spiritual regress.
