Chaitra Navratri has started from Apil 6th, 2019 and we have revamp our kitchen shelves for the same. Many Hindus observe ritualistic Navratri vrat where-in they refrain from eating non-vegetarian food and preparations that use onion and garlic, cereals, grains etc. The idea behind Navratri vrat is to promote satvik diet. According to some beliefs, it is advisable to eat light, non-greasy and spicy food, especially during this time of the year. Both Chaitra Navratri and Sharad Navratri are celebrated during seasonal transition. Our digestion and immunity tend to take a beating around this time; eating a satvik diet helps keep your tummy light and happy, according to some experts.
Our humble potato is one of the most loved vrat staples. The ever-so-versatile veggie is a show-stealer in any preparation. From curries, chips and fritters to halwa, you can throw potatoes anywhere and be sure of amazing outcomes. Navratri vrat could prove to be a challenging affair, especially if you have little fussy eaters around in your house. With limited ingredients, you are bound to feel restricted at times. But as long as you have aloo in your house, you need not to worry at all.
