Potato-Yogurt Vrat Chat

Happy Navratri to everyone... This is one of the festivals, for which most of the Indians mostly like me, wait for the whole year...10 days of celebration, with so much of good food... Though many of us, are in fasting mood. Every family has their own traditions.... Some people, do the fasting of all 9 days, and eat only dairy products and fruits... Some of them, do the fasting by eating fruits in a day time, and takes 1 complete meal in 24 hours.... Some eat everything, just substitute regular Salt with RockSalt.... And Some do fasting, only for any 2 days....

Well, we follow a different tradition.... We stop eating Onions and Garlics, for full 9 days... All the curries and soups and cooked without Onions and Garlics... No eggs and non-veg, for these 9 days... And, on 10th day, in our ancestral house, a flag is hosted on the name of Goddess ShitalaDevi early in the morning... Everyone in family worships her, and we celebrate by cooking feast on 10th day i.e. on Dushhera... 

When I got married, and got to know about these rituals... The biggest trouble for me, was how to cook meal without onion and garlics, and that to, it should be yummy as well...

So, in the process of learning and experimenting, I learnt quite few things.... Sharing, 1 of the easiest and yummiest snack, which I make on these days.... You can increase the quantity, and make a full meal out of it...
