Navratri recipes

The festivities are about to commence yet again. It is that auspicious time of the year when many pray, observe fast and worship Goddess Durga. Durga Goddess has 108 names and 9 incarnations of Durga are worshiped in these 9 days (Navratri). Navratri, one of the biggest Hindu festivals is celebrated twice a year across india and abroad. Devotees worship the different avatars of Goddess Durga for nine days. All the 9 incarnations of Durga signifies distinct power.  ‘Navratri’ refers to the nine pious nights during which Goddess Durga is worshiped and lot people observe fasts. During Navratris generally people give up non-vegetarian food while many others try reducing intake of onion and garlic from their meals. Next coming navratri commences on 21st Sept 2017.

Autumn Navratri also coorelated to Dandia festival.  Navratri festivities gives one a chance to get back to the roots and cleanse oneself, be it thoughts, or body . It is great way to detox and many observe fast by eating selective fasting food, or vrat food.
Get ready for the joy of the festival with some of my fasting recipes. These recipes are made from ingredients suitable to be consumed whilst on fast e.g. Sabudana / Sago, Water chestnut, Carrot, Paneer, Milk, etc.
