12 Easy Recipes for Navratri (Navaratri) 2012

I have vague memories of amma celebrating Navarathri (or Navratri) when I was a child. We would make a few types of sundal, some vadai, and payasam for the festival and for me, it was all about the food anyway. 

TH's family, being Brahmins, celebrate in a different way with golu and one type of sundal for each of the 9 days of navarathri. Golu is a very special thing that the entire family comes together for and on the final day, more food is made - like vadai and payasam and snacks for distribution. Married women are also given small tokens or gifts as blessings. I have especially been interested in the golu that's done for navarathri, having never really seen one or arranged one in person. One day... :) 

Anyway, here's a list of easy Navarathri recipes for 2012 from Edible Garden. Navarathri dates for 2012 is from Oct 16 to Oct 24th. Festive greetings to all of you celebrating.
