Now its the season of navrathri. Most of the people will be taking fasting for navrathri. Navrathri fasting rule in north India is different from the fasting rule in south India. In south India people will just avoid nonvegeterian foods, but in north India, apart from nonvegeterian foods people will avoid many food items. Some flours and grains are not allowed during fasting. Even while preparing curries people won’t add many ingredients during navrathri fasting. I will list here some of the ingredients that we should avoid adding, while preparing north Indian based curries during navarathri fasting
1.Onion and garlic are strictly avoided
2. No lentil and legumes
3. Turmeric powder, Coriander powder, Garam masala powder, mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds and asafoetida are not allowed in curries
