Navratri 2022: The festive season is here. Navratri started on September 26 and will go on till October 5. Translating to nine nights, Navratri worships Goddess Shakti or Goddess Durga. Celebrated in most of the states of India in various names and rituals, Navratri is one of the largest Hindu festivals of the country. People come back home to spend these ten days with their families, friends, enar and dear ones. The streets deck up in colours and lights and people deck up in new clothes. Goddess Durga’s return to her maternal house with her four children – Goddess Lakshmi, Goddess Saraswati, Lord Ganesha and Lord Kartik is celebrated.

Navratri is also the time of the year when the special dishes are prepared at home. Some people keep fast during this time and do not eat food containing onion or garlic. Women fast and offer their puja to the goddess to seek her blessings for their families. During this time, lip-smacking desserts are also prepared at home to be relished with everyone. Malpua is one such dish which is unanimously loved by everyone, and is considered apt for a festive evening.
