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. The detoxification and spiritual value not with standing, fasting also helps break the usual diet pattern and encourages us to try new ingredients. However, there’s still no reason why this fasting period in Navratri cannot be used as an excuse to feast as well.
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. The first meal is in accordance with the navratri rules which include no food grains, salt, onion, garlic. The ingredients that can be used are certain vegetables, potato, sago, and kuttu /singhade ka atta. Noida being a gastronomical paradise keeps its citizens hogging on fantastic fare with amazing Navratri Thali even during this austere fasting period.
