All these recipes reminded me of my parents home :-)
Now I don’t fast for many years, but keep making them for the sake of taste :-)

I am glad my post took you back to your parents home, I have learned all these recipes from both my mom & mom in law. I do fast during Navaratri, but I try and have a feast while I am fasting…:)!

A great blog with lovely pictoral and detailed easy to follow recipes I think the section about Navratri Fast food recipes wis really wonderful , hats off ! If a section O
of low calories items without frying etc can be included one could derive the double benefit of fasting with remembrance to Ma Durga and also trim ones waistline in the process as in any case one is letting go of much of the non prescribed food during these days . A small list of the allowed foodstuff should be there along with the taboo items and a line why some others are not allowed as I wonder why green vegetables are not allowed in Navratri but Pauli, kaddhu , Khera , tamato , alloo are thanks alka

Thank you so much Dr Alka Jayaswal,I am glad you liked my space. Your suggestions are very valid and will surely help us all, I will keep adding to this list all that is suggested out here by you :)! It’s just each post takes a lot of time starting from planning,cooking,clicking and then writing it in the blog but will slowly increase the list.Thank you onces again for your suggestions :).
