If you have been following us, then you probably know that we tested many new recipes this Navratri. The primary reason was the 9 day fast that my husband observed. The recipes may not be new for you, but were certainly new for my husband as he never ate them before.
It is my pleasure to share the recipes here with you and i hope you will also like to try them in next Navratri days.
Today’s recipe is a famous Paneer dish and is commonly known as Paneer Bhurji. We modified it according to a fast (vrat) specifications and tried to add more weight to it by adding dry fruits and roasting the Paneer a bit to provide enough nutrients and energy to survive the whole day of fast.
