The festival of Navratri has started. One of the biggest Hindu festivals, Sharad Navratri began on September 26, 2022 and will end with Dussehra on October 5, 2022. It is a nine-day extravaganza, where people worship nine avatars of Goddess Durga. Devotees also observe vrat and prepare bhog for their beloved deity. They also indulge in light, sattvik food during these nine days. From sabudana khichdi to halwa, we prepare a wide range of food to offer to Goddess Durga and eat as Prasad. But what remains the most popular dishes on a bhog thali are halwa, chana and puri. Hence, we thought of sharing a detailed recipe of the quintessential Prasad with you. Let’s find out.
