Navratri, which literally means “nine nights,” begins amid the blockades, isolation, and quarantine. Although there has been a sufficient supply of food everywhere, people avoid leaving the houses, unless there is an extreme need for the essentials. In such a situation, the use of each item in the home is the need of the hour and that, of course, becomes a struggle for people who use ‘vrats’. During navratri, people worship nine avatars of the Goddess Durga. As part of the rituals, they tend to avoid having various types of food, alcohol, and smoke during these nine days. People, especially those who fast, eat light food and ‘satvik’ during this time. The very common food ingredients consumed during this time are kuttu ka atta, makhana, peanuts, potatoes, sabudana, et al.
