Kadhi is made in many ways.I love to have it with steaming hot rice.Today i am sharing a recipe that is perfect to make during Navratri.
Navratri is an important festival celebrated all over Indiain different ways.Nine forms of Goddess Durga are worshipped for nine days. In North India, all three Navaratris are celebrated with much fervor by fasting on all nine days. Devotees avoid meat, alcoholic drinks, grains, wheat and onion during this fast. Grains are usually avoided since it is believed that during the period of Navaratri and seasonal change, grains attract and absorb a lot of negative energy from the surrounding and therefore there is a need to avoid eating anything which are produced from grains for purification .Navaratri is also a period of introspection and purification.May Goddess Durga bless us all!!!!
