Navratri is a nine-day long festival celebrated mostly by Hindus across the country. One of the biggest festivals according to the Hindu calendar, the festivities are observed twice a year, once right before summer starts and the other before Dussehra and Diwali, towards the end of the year. During this festival, people celebrate goddess Durga and her nine forms. Each of the nine days is dedicated to a distinct form of Durga. People observe a nine-day long fast during this festival and consume only selected ingredients, dairy products and fruits and refrain from consuming meat, alcohol and grains and pulses.

A typical Navratri meal is made with low levels of spices and oil and contains high amounts of fibre and essential nutrients. The ingredients of the traditional Navratri meal include potatoes, fruits and nuts, sabudana, coconut, amaranth and select vegetables. Restaurants in Delhi and Mumbai are joining in the celebrations by offering authentic Navratri meals this year. Though people wish to celebrate the festival in its true form, time constraints and other reasons are factors due to which many are unable to make the traditional Navratri meal at home. Restaurants are, hence, offering an authentic meal without compromising on the flavours of the ingredients in the meal.

Here are some of the restaurants serving Navratri meals this year.
