Jai Mata Di!!


Today is the first day of navrtras and people have cleaned their house to welcome Mata Rani in their house. Many people keep all the nine fasts and some keep the fasts in "jodis" like, first or last day of the Navratri or some keep last two. Some people get confused about what to eat and what not too. The "Sharad Navratri" known to be as the most important fasts of the year as compared to "Chaitra Navratri" which comes in summer (March or April).

It has been believed that these nine days are the holiest days on the Hindu calendar as it brings prosperity, wealth and health in the house. People read "paths" and do puja every morning and lighten up the diya for whole nine days, which we call "ankhad jyot". There are many dos and don'ts, which people believe these days, especially about food.

Food, which you can have:

Sama ke chawal

You can have only root vegetables or fruits like potato, sweet potato, pumpkin (petha), banana, cucumber, carrots, tomatoes, lemon, arbi and more.
You can have milk products like dahi, paneer, lassi, khoya, malai, etc.
People usually have kuttu ka atta ki roti, sama ke chawal ki khichdi, aloo ki tikki or singhare ke aata ki puri with "aloo ki sabzi".


Things, which you can't have:

Onions and garlic - this is known to be as the most sinful vegetables during these days.

Common salt cannot be used; only "sendha ka namak" can be put in the meals.

Eggs or any non-vegetarian is not allowed in the house. Some people throw or keep their cutlery out in which they used to cook non-vegetarian earlier. They clean their fridge and makes sure that nothing is there which includes egg in it.

Corn, mushroom or any vegetable, which is not a root vegetable, can't be eaten.

Can't use any oil, which is made from seeds. Use only peanut oil.

Normal rice or rice flour can't be used.

Atta, maida, sooji, and besan are totally out for whole nine days.



Every person keeps fasts differently; some have all the root vegetables anytime without any restrictions, some keep fast in which they consume salt once in a day and some keep with only fruits.

At the end of the fasts, people do kanjak in which they do puja of girls because there is a belief that girls are the "roop" of Mata Rani.

Jai Mata Di.
