7 Delhi Restaurants With Special Navratri Menu To Shubhaarambh The Festive Season

7 Delhi Restaurants With Special Navratri Menu To Shubhaarambh The Festive Season

We are in October right now (man, 2019 has been flying at Godspeed!) and that means the festive season has officially begun! With autumn in the offing, the nine-day long Hindu festival of Navratri is being celebrated in different parts of the country. Navratras are all about elaborate stage decorations, dandiya and garba nights, fancy clothes and, of course, yummy food. Oh, the food!

Navratri celebrates the battle and victory of good over evil, depending on the region. In the east, for example, these nine days are synonymous with Durga Pujo, whereas, in the north and west, the tenth day after Navratri is celebrated as Dusshera in light of Lord Rama's victory over Ravana. Likewise, in the south, Lord Rama or Goddess Saraswati are celebrated. In other words--regional delicacies from different parts of the country are what we feast on.

But, in some houses, these nine days call for certain restrictions on food choices such as no alcohol, no meat and a long list of other no-nos, besides fasting. Therefore, restaurants have started coming up with a special menu offering Navratri-friendly food so people can enjoy bahar ka khana without any guilt.
