Navratri- The traditional Hindu festival.
The festive season of Navratri is about to begin. With festivals, come different opportunities for us to indulge in delectable dishes. This time is both for enjoying as well as fasting. Those who celebrate Navratri, keep fast on all the nine days of the festival. In fact the word ‘Navratri’ itself refers to the the nine auspicious nights during which Goddess Durga is worshiped and most people observe fasts. During Navratri, most of the people give up non vegetarian food as well as onions. But even if these food items are banned, the good part is you can celebrate Navratri with some special items that are only made on Vrat (fast).
