Navratri, a festival filled with joy, happiness, positivity is all here! It’s the time when we fast for 9 days, pray to god, play garba-dandia.. Talking about the fast, people follow different rituals for it, Some eat food once a day, some eat only falhari food once a day, some eat food with no salt, some with only sendha/rock salt, some eat only fruits, some only drink water or milk, some eat only satvik food.. Many other rituals are there, all families follow different things but what brings them together is the God & the energy & positivity God gives us while fasting!
My family follows to eat Satvik Food Once a day in the festival. So, today is the Day 1 of the Nine Day Festival, and here’s the Satvik thali I made for today 🙂
Today, its Day 5! I am not fasting, but my mom is, and i am also getting to enjoy this lovely spreads that i make for her..
People fast in different styles as per their preference, some fully avoid the grains and pulses and eat only fruits and specific flours. Though, my mother follows a satvik diet as we feel it is the best choice.
I was feeling lazy, so dint make anything special today.. Ofcourse, the reason behind the simple spread was also that from past 2 days mom was feeling that the food was on the heavy side.. So, this day was pretty simple with no much on the meal but with a starter, I hope you like it. Do drop in your comments!
What’s in there?
Mix Dal, Masala Alu Beans, Rice, Roti, Sabudana Vada(Starter) with Green Chutney, Potato Chips and Fryums and Malai Pedas
