The country is all geared up to celebrate the Sharad Navratri that begins on 7th October and ends by the 15th of October. The nine-day festival is spent in the devotion to Goddess Durga and hence many devotees abstain from meat and alcohol. Many will be observing a fast in honour of the nine forms of Goddess Durga and stick to sattvic or no-onion, no-garlic meals. Ingredients like onions, garlic, grains amongst others are avoided during the fast and we often feel that limits our meal options to sabudana khichdi and kuttu ki puri. But not anymore! Because what we bring for you today is a handpicked list of some unique and exciting breakfast options you can enjoy while observing the fast. These dishes are so yummy and easy that you will be making these even when not a vrat.
