Navratras are a period to observe austerity and discipline. A lot of us fast for these nine days for various reasons which include appeasing deities, detoxification, to knock off the extra kilos or just because others are doing it. As someone once said, fasting is just a change of diet. Some people manage to survive nine days by simply eating fruits or on a glass of milk but a foodie like me needs two meals a day. But here we have some options to make your Navratri meals exciting as well
