The Editors at Today’s Traveller asked India’s top Chefs to tell us what was their Favourite Dish to cook during Navratri. We requested them to share the recipe and ingredients, so all Navratri fast observers and foodies, in general, could make it in their home for their families.

The Navratri festival in mid-April is a paradoxical one wherein you fast and then break the fast with delicious food prepared from special vrat food. This 9-day festival celebrates what is traditionally known as Navratri food. Interestingly, these meals are right at the top if you were to rank nutritious and diet-friendly meals anywhere in the world.
