Fasting and Hinduism
Indians do a lot of intermittent fasting.Some fast once a week while others on special days.Usually,we fast on ekadashi(11 th day of the month) or Poornima (Full moon night).There are many who do it once in 6 months.One such fast is that of Navratri.It is a 9 day fasting.We celebrate it twice an year.(Mar-Apr) in spring and (Sep-Oct) in Autumn. Some people also fast on an yearly basis like each monday in rainy season or Saavan.
Usual diet during fasting
Most people eat one meal a day.Usually we eat at sunset.
Generally, we eat only gluten-free flours,root vegetables,dairy and fruits.
We can consume only certain spices. Ginger,dried mango powder, green chillies and black pepper are allowed.
We use rock salt instead of sea salt.
Here is a recipe of Vrat sev puri-dahi puri(SP-DP) which you can easily make at home.
Sago and waterchestnut flour make it healthier instead of plain maida.Yet,they taste as good as your store bought ones.
Afterall,store bought ones gives no nutrition to kids.
They love street food and adore such tangy and sweet snacks.
Furthermore removing'maida' diskettes ensures you use all the fasting flours after the fasts are done.
Almost all of us do not know what to do with the gluten-free flours once the fasting period is over.
Probably,end up wasting them later.This is a great way to use it.
