 Serve these with Farali Dum Aloo, Potato and Peanut Bhaji, Ratalu Sabji or Fruit and Nut raita.

Although we fast, we still gorge on food..that's the Hindu religion for you! It is flexible, there are no hard and fast rules to follow. Oh yes there are rules but you are allowed to bend them according to your needs, how cool is that!!

We (minus me) observe fast almost 10 days of the month, certain days of the week is marked for fasting, almost on every festival we fast yet we cook and devour zillion treats. As soon as the fasting season is in the air foodies are always on a hunt for something new or adventurous.

A few months back, I observed fast for some personal reason, and I was trying some healthy farali recipes and tried many, some worked and a few straight away got in a queue to come on the blog. So I generally prepare Rajgira Thepla or Kuttu Ka paratha, but this time to make healthier added grated doodhi and few extra spices and herbs. The result was splendid, so here I am with Farali Dudhi/Lauki Thepla! A perfect dish you to try during Navratri or any other fasting season.

Enjoy fasting the healthy way!

The greatest good you can do for another is not just share your riches, but reveal to them their own.
