In order to make sure that you don't miss a major part of Navratri-festival i.e., the food, here are top 5 Navratri recipes which you must savor with your loved ones:
Kuttu Ka Dosa
Navratri’s food is all about ditching flour, salt, onion, garlic and more and swapping it with healthier substitutes. One of such substitute is buckwheat flour/Kuttu Ka Atta which is used instead of wheat flour. And if you are a dosa-fan, then you must try a crisp dosa recipe made of kuttu ka atta (buckwheat flour) with a potato filling.
Singhare Ke Atte Ka Samosa
Just like the buckwheat flour, water-chestnut flour is also a great substitute for wheat flour. However, the water-chestnut flour is better utilized if used for making puris or pakoras. Ennouugh said, Singhare Ka Atta will also brilliantly work for making samosas. So, what are you waiting for? Get your Singhare Ka Atta and get frying some samosas.
Khichdi is nothing to brag about. Also, you will never hear a food enthusiast ever talking about Khichdi. But if you replace boring old rice with sabudana then what you get is an interesting mixture of flavours which must not be missed. You can a lot of twists and turns in this recipe for creating your very own version of sabudana Khichdi
One of the downfalls of Navratri food is that you get to eat a lot of potato. Potato is in everything. And there comes a time when you want to eat everything except for potatoes. And right there and then God invented ‘Arbi’ for saving you from the boredom. Well, don’t feel bad! The trick is to first boil the Arbi and then fry/bake/double fry it for making your very own Arbi-snack.
Another Navratri special recipe which is immensely popular in Northern India, Badam Lassi can easily be made with at-home. Soak some almonds throughout the night in water and then turn them into a thick paste and then add that paste to your sweetened Lassi. You can decorate you drink with some fresh herb leaves.
