During the ongoing Chaitra Navratri, many people fast on all nine days of the festival while worshipping Goddess Durga's nine forms. In special vrat meals, it is customary not to use onion or garlic One of the foods that many people love to consume during this fasting period is sabudana (sago or tapioca pearls). It's thought to have a lot of health benefits. Carbohydrates, calcium, fibre, protein, iron, and Vitamin K are all abundant in sabudana.
