Must Try Vrat Ka khana

Once again it's the time of the year when so many Indian religious festivals are lined up one after the other like Janmashtami or Gokulashtami, Navratri and many more. 

I mentioned before in my previous posts that Hinduism is often described as a religion of fasts, feasts and festivals, again and again I am proving that. We cannot stay away from those delicious and gorgeous dishes which are prepared during fasting period.

So let's embrace the joy of the festivals with the best of our fasting recipes. I have compiled a list of old favourites to newer ones. I N D U L G E in a L O T :)
Happy Fasting  !!!
