Preparing these dishes isn’t a difficult task especially for breakfast, lunch and dinner. But difficulty intensifies while thinking about evening snacks as we are acquainted with eating something chatpata. So, to get you covered by satisfying your cravings during Navratri here’s a Vrat-friendly Samosa recipe. Try it out this Navratri season and thank us later.

· ½ tsp cardamom powder
