Navratri is a significant Hindu festival celebrated twice a year in India to worship the goddess Durga and her nine incarnations, each representing a unique power. Many people fast for up to nine days during the festival, which occurs at the beginning of spring and fall. As part of the fast, non-vegetarian foods, onions and garlic are excluded, and instead, people consume light, easily digestible foods such as kuttu atta, singhara atta, fresh vegetables, milk, yoghurt, and makhanas.

Sendha namak is preferred over table salt as it is considered purer. For vrat-friendly sweets, nothing beats delicious ladoos, which can be made with any ingredient. As the festive season approaches, indulge in delectable coconut rose ladoos that can be consumed during fasts or served as bhog for rituals. It features coconut, almonds, rose syrup, dried fruits and nuts, rose petals, and condensed milk, making it a delightful treat for both your taste buds and eyes.
