Navratri is the time of the year when idols of goddess Durga are decorated and morning prayers are offered accompanied by synchronised bells.
It is one of the biggest Hindu festivals and is celebrated twice a year with great fervour across the country. Devotees worship the different avatars of Goddess Durga for nine days and most people observe fasts. It is celebrated twice a year, at the beginning of spring and during the onset of autumn.
During Navratris most people give up non-vegetarian food while many others also eliminate onion and garlic from their meals. The aroma of pure butter or desi ghee delicacies fill up the space.

Your standard mushrooms-on-toast gets an upgrade with lashings of fresh green pesto, sundried tomatoes and oozing melted mozzarella. This dish makes an indulgent Sunday breakfast in bed but it can just as easily lapse into a lazy vegetarian lunch or perhaps a quick, meatless weeknight dinner. And remember, the fresher the mushrooms, the better.
This easy recipe turns a simple pasta bake into a green veggie feast. Pasta, broad beans, watercress and artichokes are all cooked in a rich and creamy mascarpone sauce with a golden halloumi topping. Fresh chilli adds a little spice, but you can leave it off if you prefer.
