Be it Navratri or Shravan maas, many practice fasting during these months, which means onion, garlic is a big no no for many. Fasting practices are different from region to region. I believe “There are no rules in fasting. Some fast on Mondays, some on Tuesdays and Fridays, while others fast only on certain religious days”. While a wide region follows the no onion, no garlic, and abstain from non vegetarian food, some even say no to mustard seeds, stay away from grains and wheat.

Raw tomatoes, ever tasted them? Chances are that you might not like it at all. The texture, the taste, or even the flavour of raw tomato might put you off. We often use tomato as a base for any curry. How about using it as a vegetable itself and not as a base? Processing/cooking raw tomatoes changes it’s texture and flavour and you will be surprised how the otherwise ‘disgusting’ raw tomatoes can turn into a delicious dish! This recipe does not use any onion or garlic in it.
