Those who fast during Chaitra Navratri follow different rituals during the nine days of fasting. Some eat food once a day, some eat only falhari food (fruits) once a day, some eat food with no salt, some with only sendha/rock salt, some eat only fruits, some only drink water or milk and otherss eat only satvik food. In fact, every family has its own rituals but ultimately, what brings everybody together is the energy and positivity. My family eats satvik food once a day during the festival.
