Probably the most upbeat and happening Indian festival, Navratri is a festival dedicated to Hindu Goddesses. Precisely translated, Navratri means “nine nights”. During these nine nights, the nine Hindu deities are worshipped. Navratri occurs two times in a year and as this appears in the months of March and April, it is known as “Vasanta Navratri”. The beginning of this Navratri also marks the beginning of the new year according to the Hindu mythological lunar calendar.

With a new deity to worship to preach, another day to fast, garba nights to have fun at and a different color to wear every day, this festival is colorful and fun. But that’s not what Navratri is all about. Where there is an Indian festival, there is also always a tasteful array of dishes. As this is traditionally a Gujarati¬† festival, a Thali are a must have. A thali is meal made up of various dishes that cover all six flavors – salty, sweet, sour, bitter, astringent and spicy.
