What is your favourite dish to cook during Navratri? we asked and pronto! India’s top Chefs shared their favourite dish to cook during Navratri along with the recipe, so all food lovers can make it in their home for their loved ones.

We wait all year for celebrating food for the Navratri festival in mid-April. The 9-day of festivities puts a spotlight on what is traditionally known as Navratri fasting food but these meals are probably some of the most nutritious and diet-friendly meals in the world.

Chef Vikramjit Singh Ahluwalia, Radisson Gurugram, Udyog Vihar shares two of his favourite dishes to cook during Navratri, both of which are great for snacking too.

Till or Sesame seeds make a wonderful ingredient as they are rich in Calcium, Iron, Zinc and Protein. Khajoor or dates are sugar free, have lots of fibre and are a good source of calcium, potassium, magnesium and phosphorus. Peanuts are loaded with fibre, good fat and magnesium among other nutrients.

Happy Navratri! Happy Cooking with recipes of Khajoor Aur Till ke Ladoo and Moongfali Aur Till ke Laddoo by Chef Vikramjit Singh Ahluwalia!
