The festival of Navratri has begun from today. This Navratri is also known as Chaitra Navratri, Vasant Navratri and Ram Navratri. This Navratri will be celebrated from April 2 to April 10, 2022. During the festival of Navratri, nine forms of Goddess Durga are specially worshipped.
The rules of Navratri fasting may vary but the basic premise is that the food during the fast should be healthy and light. Fasting should mostly consist of things like buckwheat flour, singhara flour, nuts, fresh vegetables, fruits, milk, curd and makhana. Rock salt is used in place of salt.
Obviously, this festival is in the summer season, so fasting can also increase the risk of weakening the immune system. This is the reason why you should consume such healthy things during fasting, which will give strength to the body and keep you healthy. Priyanshi Bhatnagar, Head of Detoxpri and Dietitian, tells you some such homemade recipes, which can be helpful in keeping you fit these days.
Shake of Rajgira
For this, first soak the seeds of Rajgira in hot water. Heat a non stick pan, add 1 tbsp dried rajgira seeds to the hot pan. Peel and cut along with banana, strawberry and pomegranate. Cut dried figs, almonds and keep them aside. Add 1 to 2 tbsp curd, 5 tsp honey. Then make a layer of fruits. Later add dried figs, almonds.
Sago and Yogurt Shake
Sabudana is one of the better sources of carbohydrates. Sabudana contains a good amount of iron, a small amount of protein along with a good amount of calcium, vitamins and other minerals. Consuming 100 grams of sago can provide up to 350 calories with 85.5 grams of carbohydrates and 0.2 grams of protein. To make this, soak tapioca pearls in water for about 4 hours. After that boil it. Keep all the fruits ready and cut them. In a bowl, mix boiled sago with curd, fruits and nuts. Sprinkle honey over it.
Apples with Ramdana or Rajgira
You can prepare a perfect dish by mixing rajgira, apple and curd. This can easily be made at home. Apart from being delicious, it is highly nutritious as it contains nutrients like carbohydrates, fiber, protein, calcium, iron, vitamin B6 and magnesium in Rajgira seeds. About 100 grams of ripe Rajgira seeds provide 103 calories. It is also a good source of manganese and phosphorus.
