The vibrant festival of Navratri is knocking at the door, and everybody is gearing up to revel in this joyous occasion. So, amidst all the excitement and merrymaking, food is a significant part of this festival. Read this blog, where we bring you our notable picks of three must-try dishes from Bombay Kitchen during the celebrations of Navratri!
Navratri, the auspicious festival of Hindu tradition, is widely celebrated by Indians all across the world. The festival lasts for nine nights, during which we offer our heartfelt prayers with immense devotion to Durga Devi, and the tenth day of the festival is known as Dussehra or Vijayadashami. We consider Dussehra special because this day marks the end of Durga Puja, thereby the festival’s conclusion. During this beautiful festival, people worship Maa Durga, gather with friends and loved ones, and indulge in delectable meals with authentic Indian food on the menu. These delicacies are a must-try if one wishes to experience the culinary side of the festival season in India.
There are several dishes that are considered special Navratri delicacies, and they are just perfect for this occasion as well as for your Dussehra celebration.
