Annotation:Mahias’ case study on the Agraval Digambar Jains of Delhi illuminates the gender-specific roles behind Jain cuisine. Utilizing demographic studies and her research on food products, forbidden foods, fasting, meals content, meal preparation, and dietary conventions, she demonstrates how gender roles fit into an overarching tension between religious values emphasizing spiritual liberation and social values focusing on the sharing of food.
