Gujarati Faraal Food

Faraal food is basically food that is permissible on fasting days. These Gujarati faral foods are usually energy-dense, made with ingredients like potatoes, peanuts, sago and flours, and without using some ingredients like turmeric powder and cereals depending upon personal preference. Some people also do not consume salt and rice during fast. This section covers traditional Gujarati faraali foods as well as some innovative recipes made by replacing certain ingredients and cooking methods in regular recipes. Keep up your stamina on fasting days with traditional dishes like Sabudana Vada, Sabudana Khichadi and Thandai , as well as innovative treats like Kand Aloo Pakoda, Shakarkand Ka Halwa and Farali Dosa
