Sago cooked for Fasting (Sabudana khichdi for Vrati)

Navratri is one of those festivals in India, which is celebrated by about 80 % of the citizen. In this festival, many worshipers, do fasting for first and eighth day of the festival. Some do it for all 9 days, and eat proper food and grains on the 10th day. And in many families, they do not eat and cook Garlic and Onions for the 9 days. I even knew some people, who do fasting for the whole day, and eat complete food including grain, one time at a day mostly after sunset. Some people only eats fruits and some dishes on these 9 days, which are made of sago (sabudana), Makhana, potatoes, etc.
