Navratri Food thali

There are certain food items that are meant to be eaten during the fasting season. Sama ke chawal, sendha namak, Kuttu ka aata, singhade ka aata etc.

Since I kept fast on once of the days, I made this meal for myself. Kuttu ke aate ki poori, Dahi aalu and Sama ke chawal.

Here is a how to make-

Kuttu ki Poori: You shall need- [Feeds 2]

3/4 cup… Kuttu ka aata

1…Large boiled potato

1/2 tsp… Pepper

1/2 tsp… sendha namak

few tbsp water [Optional]


  • Mix the pepper, aata and sendha namak.
  • Add mashed potato to it and mix well.
  • Dont add water, let the potato be the binding agent.
  • If it feels really dry, half a tbsp of water at a time and make it managable.
  • On a plastic surface/with wet hands, make a poori.
  • Slide it in the oil for frying.
  • Cook until nice and brown-ish.
  • Serve

Dahi wale Aalu: You shall need [Feeds 2]

This one is similar to the recipe here. However there are a few changes.

2… Boiled potatoes, cut in cubes

3 tbsp… Dahi

1…green chilly

Sendha namak


1 tbsp… Oil

1/2 tsp.. Jeera


  • Heat oil in a pan. Add the jeera and green chilly.
  • Add the potato cubes and the salt.
  • Stir for a few seconds.
  • Add the dahi and cover and cook for 5 min on medium flame.
  • Remove the lid and let the water escape.
  • Serve with corriander on top.

Sama ki Chawal. I made them with the help of recipe from here. [Ghar ka khaana from Sheelu Agarwal]

Apologies for fewer images 😦 The puja n cleaning of mandir were my priority for the day 🙂
