Navratri starts today and since it is a period of fasting, there are many ingredients that people can't eat and use in their dishes. It is also why they have to alter their recipes in more ways than one. Some people rely on consuming traditional food during the season but others who find it difficult, may even consider giving up on the activity entirely because they can't seem to find their way around it. Looking for alternative ingredients for dishes that use ingredients that are an essential part of everyday cooking in India is understandably a task but not one that can't be done.
