  6. What is black chana sundal?? Similar kind of aloo with pooris we used to get in Kanya bhojan on Ashtami of Navratri….other than tomato and green chillies, the sabji had turmeric, red chilli pow, asafoetida in it…satwik food is simple yet tasty. I am a Maharashtrian grew up in Indore and there are many Jains there…i grew up having many foods which dont even require onion and garlic to make them tasty..You should try some Jain recipes. 🙂

    • tanvi, sundals are usually made in south india during navratri festival. in south india they don’t fast during navratri. at my mil place they make dry kala chana for kanjak pooja too which you are referring in ur comment. below is the link for dry kala chana which is made at my mil place for kanjak pooja. https://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/kala-chana-dry-kala-chana-dry-recipe/

      satwic food is very good for mental harmony, peace and ideal for spiritual growth. but i like to have fried food also at times.

  7. I really admire your website.
    Enjoyed your insight on veg recipes and most of all your pictures.
