Upvas (Fasting) Recipes recipes





Fasting on special days like Navratri require you to adhere to certain norms such as not eating cereals, sea salt, etc. Therefore there are some recipes like Sabudana Khichdi or Sabudana Vada that people usually have during upvas. In this section, we share with you not only the traditional faraali recipes but also some innovative ones like Faraali Misal , Layered Handva , Upvaas Thalipeeth, and more.

Sabudana Khichdi is a perfect food for those on a fast – but generally wiped off by others in the family who are not on a fast also, because it is so irresistibly tasty!

A satiating thalipeeth made of rajgira flour is the perfect food to have on a fasting day. Perked up with grated potatoes and crushed peanuts, not to forget some lemon juice and green chilli paste, the Upvaas Thalipeeth is a real treat to your palate too.
