Savour these Navaratra thalis in Delhi before the 9-day long festival ends

Navaratri is a nine-day long festival celebrated by Hindus in India and all across the world. The nine days represent the nine forms of Goddess Durga. This is the time the entire Hindu community is busy in prayers and devotion.

While the Navaratri is on, a majority of the Hindus turn vegetarian and refrain from onion and garlic in the food as well. Many people also observe fast on all days or two days, usually in pairs. After preparing all the delicious food at home, they might want to venture out to restaurants to try the Navratra delicacies there.

Usually the Navaratri thali contains Kuttu Puri, Potato curry, Sabudana Khichdi, Soma rice, Sitafal, colocasia, and more.
