It is a festival popularly known as the festival of worship and dance. The word Navaratri means nine nights in Sanskrit. The nine manifestations of Durga are worshiped over the nine days by holding various rituals, fasts, and feasts. So, let’s celebrate the festival of Navratri and relish your days of fasting with our exceptional Navratri recipes:

Ghatasthapana or Kalashsthapana:

The nine-day festivities begin with Ghatasthapana. This ritual of appealing Goddess Shakti is performed with blessed enthusiasm and devotion during the designated time on the first Navratri day. Also known as Kalashsthapana, it is mostly performed before midday, and never during the night. Several items are required to perform Ghatasthapana, including clay pot, seeds of seven grains, more, supari, coconut, and a red cloth. The first day holds a special significance in Maharashtra. The day devoted to Goddess Durga is considered auspicious to make a new beginning. Students seek blessings by placing their books near the deity.

Worship with flowers:

Fresh garland of flowers is offered to the Goddess on each day during morning prayers. The garlands are not removed until the ninth day. On the tenth day, also known as Dusshera and Vijayadashami, which marks the end of the celebrations, all the garlands are removed together and the idol is immersed in water. Young girls are invited to homes and offered choices of Navratri recipes.
