Navaratri 2021 is about to begin! This year, we are celebrating this religious festival from 7th October 2021 to 15th October 2021. Every year, this auspicious festival is celebrated by praying to the Goddess Durga's incarnation. Each day is marked for worshipping one of Goddess Durga's nine avatars. People celebrate it by conducting pujas and holding fasts throughout the nine days. This religious fast restricts one from eating salt, atta, onion and garlic. Therefore, we have decided to find a recipe for you that you can enjoy during Navaratri without breaking your religious fast, kuttu khichdi.
