5 No Onion-Garlic Breakfast Recipes For Navratri

Choosing a breakfast without onion and garlic for the auspicious nine-day holiday of Navratri requires plenty of thought. The foods, which include onion and garlic, are restricted to many Navratri adherents. It may be difficult to decide what to eat for breakfast during this auspicious month, but there are plenty of tasty and healthy options. Listed below are five mouthwatering breakfast options that are ideal for Navratri as they do not contain onion or garlic. 


Semolina (rava) or rice flour is the main ingredient in the classic South Indian morning meal known as upma. You won't even miss the onion or garlic because of the mustard seeds, curry leaves, green chilies, and shredded ginger that give it a flavour blast. Upma is a healthy way to begin the day because it is packed with veggies. As a satisfying Navratri breakfast, serve it hot with coconut chutney.  


In addition to being a well-liked sweet dessert, halwa may also be a delicious alternative for breakfast during the Navratri festival. Semolina, wheat flour, or tapioca pearls are among of the components that are used in its preparation. It is then cooked in ghee and sweetened with either sugar or jaggery. Both its flavour and its nutritional content are improved by the addition of ingredients such as chopped nuts, raisins, and saffron. The fact that this sumptuous meal not only fulfils the desire for sweets but also offers energy makes it an excellent option for the morning of Navratri. 


Appe, also known as Paniyaram or paddu, is a South Indian dish prepared from fermented batter. It is often made with rice and lentils and cooked in a specific mould to make little, round dumplings. These dumplings are healthful and simple to digest. By removing the onion and garlic from the batter and flavouring it with cumin seeds, curry leaves, and green chilies, you may make a tasty and satvik breakfast for Navratri. 

Fruit Salad with Honey-Lemon Dressing 

A fruit salad with honey-lemon dressing is a delicious and healthful breakfast option during Navratri. In a dish, mix together seasonal fruits such as apples, bananas, grapes, and pomegranate seeds. Drizzle them with a honey-lemon juice sauce and a sprinkle of black salt. This colourful and flavorful will satisfy the taste senses, and also contains essential minerals and vitamins to help you start your day on a healthy note. 

Kuttu Dosa 

Kuttu, or buckwheat flour, is popular during Navratri because of its satvik properties. Make Kuttu dosa with this gluten-free flour to enjoy a delicious morning. Combine kuttu flour and water to make a smooth batter seasoned with green chilies, ginger, and rock salt. Pour ladlefuls of batter onto a hot griddle, spreading thinly and cooking until golden brown. These crispy and savoury dosas are a nutritious breakfast alternative for Navratri fasting.
