Gheeya ke Cheeley/ Bottle gourd and Buckwheat Pancakes

Festivals are a special part of people’s life in India, be it Onam in Kerala, or Baisakhi in Punjab. They embark special emotions in people of the  each region, where they are celebrated and bring along some amazing   spread   of special food, which holds a sacred place in the cook books across the globe.

Celebrating Navaratras here in North of India marks the beginning of a month long of festivities stretching up till Diwali and Bhai Duj

In Navratras people observe Fasting ( read feasting) through nine days with a no cereal diet and only fruits and millets to be consumed along with some dairy products with the idea of Sattvik ( food that gives positive energy due to balanced composition)  intake.

We as kids always had a feast arranged when my mother grandmother and aunts would fast and special fasting food was made which is no less than a feast due to its uniqueness.

Would like to share some special recipes from my mums pandora box.

Fasting is a period of low energy so my recipes are quick, no fuss, minimal on fat and off course full of love and flavours…

Happy Fasting!!
