Gujarati Faraal Food
Faraal food is basically food that is permissible on fasting days. These 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 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
Raita is the most versatile Indian accompaniment. They can be made by using vegetables, fruits or a combination of both. Make this seasonal special Mango Raita, that tastes heavenly or Yam Raita made using mashed yam and perked up with green chilli paste and freshly ground black pepper. Enjoy these tongue-tickling delights with Sama Pulao or Dahiwale Aloo Ki Subzi with Rajgira Puri and enjoy a complete meal even on fasting days.
Also, if you are tired of having regular khichdi with pulses and grains then try these Potato Khichdi or Sweet Potato Khichdi made by grating the tubers and tossing with roasted peanuts. It is very easy to make and tastes amazing with Rajgira ki Kadhi.

Who could have thought of Rajgira Paratha Canapés, mini crumbly parathas topped with stir-fried aloo ki subzi and topped with green chutney or Masala Sweet Potato Fries, that cook much faster than potatoes when deep-frying. Try these innovative faraali snacks and jazz up your boring faraal food!
Satiate your evening hunger pangs with these tongue-tickling Faraali Pattice, Kand Tikki, Buckwheat Dhokla, Potatoes and Buckwheat Pakora , Sanwa Dosa with green chutney and Peanut Curd Chutney.
