Sentient food platter- sattvic food for navratras

Navratras or Durga Puja or Dussera, and many more names to the 10 day Hindu festival during Autumn. Celebrated throughout the world by innumerable traditions, customs and rituals.

Food is important part of all the rituals. With 29 states, 7 union territories, 780 languages and more than 2000 dialects, India packs quite a punch !!! 😉 There are 15 languages endorsed on every currency notes in India. Constutionally, we majorly speak in 22 languages !! We are a secular country with a majority of Hindus. So many states/regions, languages, religious practices and a history of almost 5000 years, more or less, food, culture, traditions, rituals have evolved !!

Bengalis during Durga Puja consume a lot of non -vegetarian food, on the other hand, majority North Indians consume vegetarian food.

Even the type of food consumed changes from region to region as per their climate and the crop produced.

That is why it is said for India ‘Unity in Harmony’ 🙂

Presenting here today a Sentient food/diet platter or what we call ‘Sattvic bhojan’.

      It is a little tricky to handle 😉 Start simple by making crepes or pancakes. Use non stick pan. Will be easier to handle. Go, Go , Give it a try 😀 It is gluten free and healthy.
