India is gearing up for the celebrations of Chaitra Navratri and how. Navratri is one of India's most widely celebrated festivals. Nine forms of Durga are worshipped on nine days of this festival, which is why many people refrain from meat and alcohol as a mark of devotion. Many also observe the ritualistic Navratri vrat, wherein they eat light, vegetarian, Sattvik food. As we all know, grains, pulses and cereals are prohibited in this fasting regime so many people struggle with options.

This delicious and quick recipe by food vlogger Parul is ideal for a quick and crispy breakfast. It is so yummy, you would be making it even when not on a vrat.
