Be it any Indian festival, it has to be celebrated with something sweet. Right after Navratri fasting and Ashtami puja, comes Ram Navami, which marks the birth day of Lord Rama. The day always falls on the ninth and last day of the Navratri festival, when devotees who fast for all nine days of Navratri break their fast with a lavish meal. There are many people who fast on Ram Navami too and consume sattvik food after evening prayers. And the happy occasion calls for some celebratory sweets. From kheer to halwa, a host of sweet recipes can be prepared and served for the whole family to enjoy.
