Today I am sharing a very delicious ,easy and nutritious Dahi Sabudana / Sago in Yogurt (vrat recipe) recipe. A perfect dish for offering as Bhog to God or to eat on fasting days.As per the Hindu Calendar there are many festivals in a year. There are many festivals when people fast . In some cases people do no take water or food and this is called Nirjal Upwas. There are days when you fast but can eat certain food items. There is a lot of difference in the procedure of observing fasts In North ,South ,East and Western parts of India. Some people religiously follow the rituals even today. On the days I fast i do Nirjal Upwas. You find Cultural change every 500 kms in the same state.India is so diverse with such a rich and beautiful culture.
Why do People Fast?
Our ancestors followed the rituals of Praying and Fasting. Scientifically Fasting has many benefits . Some of them are listed below:
Promotes Blood Sugar
Improves Health of the heart by improving blood pressure and Cholestrol Levels
Aids weight loss by reducing Intake of food
Helps to Rejuvinate
