First of all, Wish You Very Very Happy Navratri to all my readers, May this Navratri Goddess Durga Maa fulfil all your dreams and brings happiness in your life.
Generally Indian devotes nine days of worshiping goddess in different way in different culture and celebrates with family and friends by fasting on all nine days. The Navratri fast is observed from the first day to the ninth day. Some people confine to milk and fruits during the nine days. Most devotees take a single meal during the day. Non-vegetarian food is totally avoided. Many people also avoid the consumption of onion and garlic for the entire duration of Navaratri. So everyone wants some different recipes on these days that call falahar or fast recipes.
