Sundal

From the traditional sundal to payaru pongal, we bring you recipes for some of the commonly served snacks during Navratri.

With the onset of Navratri, the festive season gears for a colourful start in the country.

Navratri meaning 'nine nights' is traditionally marked with Hindu women praying to Goddess Durga and observing fast throughout the nine days.

While most women who fast give up on rice, wheat and dal, they take to fruits and low-calorie snacks during this time.

These snacks are distributed among young women and children after the morning and evening prayers.

We bring you the recipes of some of the snacks cooked and served during Navratri season.
