Navratri 2018 is already here, and so, is the excitement which lasts for 9 long days.  The festival of Navratri is celebrated differently in different parts of India but one thing that binds us all together is fasting for the divine goddess Durga. While some look forward to give their body a much-needed weight loss, others make a peace with their cravings for that lip-smacking vrat food, right?

During Navratris most people give up non-vegetarian including onion and garlic from their meals. Instead, people switch to special Navratri food ingredients like Sabudaana, Sendha Namak, Kuttu ka Atta, Singhare ka Atta, dairy products and certain vegetables. While dishes like Sabudana Khichdi, aloo chaat and cutlets are prepared in every home, try these different food recipes to pamper your taste buds this Navratri!
