Navratri Treats


Festivity is in the air and you can almost taste it! 

Despite the strict diet of no onion, garlic and non-vegetarian foods, I always feel the colourful festival of Navratri calls for pleasing the Hindu Goddess Durga without displeasing our taste buds.

Because who says you cannot feast when you fast!

One look at my “Navratri special” faraali recipe and you will know that faraal foods can be even more sumptuous and much more flavourful than everyday meals!
