Navratra Special / Vrat Special / Fasting Recipe

Navratras are approaching and so the preparations are in full swing to celebrate the Festivities and relish the food to their best. Come October and the festivities begin.I just love this month.Its full of excitement,action,celebrations,happiness,birthdays and best of all feasting!!. Food preps go hand in hand with all other paraphernalia. And Food preparations are my favorite part. I learnt this recipe from my mother-in-law. I love this dish and hope you all too.Do try this khatta meetha kaddu. During,Fasting days we make it only with jeera and tomatoes. It gets its “khatta/sour” flavor from the tomatoes and meetha from sugar. Otherwise,on a regular day,i add fenugreek seeds,garlic and onion too.But the satvik version is equally tasty.
