India is celebrating Chaitra Navratri - one of the most auspicious festivals among the Hindus. It is dedicated to Goddess Durga and her avatars and devotees mark the occasion with much grandeur. Well, today is Maha Ashtami, the eighth day of Navratri, dedicated to Goddess Maha Gauri. Apart from the regular puja, devotees prepare bhog on this day and offer to the Goddess. A quintessential Ashtami bhog thali includes halwa, puri and chana. Crispy puris, mixed with sweet halwa and spicy sookha chana, makes for a super delicious platter. And let's agree, we fall it every single time we eat. It seems to be no different for Bollywood actor Kriti Sanon. She recently shared a glimpse of her special Ashtami prasad and wrote alongside, “Happy Ashtami.”
