Vrat, Falahari and No onion No garlic Meal Planner

Vrat, Falahari and No onion No garlic Meal Planner

Navratri is a very auspicious time of the year and is celebrated over a period of 8-9 days. During this time period, devotees observe fast from the first day to the ninth day.

People eat only one meal a day, prepared with grains and vegetables that are healthy and easy to prepare. Besides grains and vegetables, nuts, fruits, and fruit juices/smoothies can also be consumed.

Cooking a meal is easy but planning that meal can be a daunting task. Meal planning is my routine and I do meal planning every Saturday and shop accordingly.

Not only it saves time, but it also saves some money too. To help you get started I have penned down my this year’s Navratri VRAT MEAL PLANNER. Feel free to make alterations and move around the recipes to suit your taste buds.

During Navratri, many Hindu families avoid eating onion-garlic meals. Why avoid onion-garlic meals during Navratri?

In Hinduism, food is categorized into three categories – Tamasic, Rajasic, Sattvic.  Follow this link to learn more about No onion no garlic cooking. 

Not all people in the family observe fast. Below is the no onion no garlic dinner meal planner that me and my family will follow during Navratri.

Feel free to shuffle around the recipes to suit your busy schedule.
