Farali Chaat

 Are you observing Navratri this year? Are you bored of eating the same fasting food over and over again?!? don’t worry because I got you!! Try this farali chaat, it will literally come together in like 10 minutes and satisfy your craving. You can call this farali chaat or bhel! This Farali Chaat is perfect for any past you observe, Navratri, Ekadasi, Shivratri, Janmashtami…etc. You get the point lol. This is something fun and a little different than your normal fasting food. 

This is the green chutney recipe I used, omit the garlic and use sea salt. That will make it fast/ upvas friendly! I used Swad tamarind date chutney in this, you can also use homemade. Pomegranate seeds add a tarty flavor to it and love the crunch it gives.Here are some other upvas recipes you might like: Sabudana Khichdi, Sabudana Vada. I hope you will give this a try and amplify your fasting game!! ALSO this is good even if you are not fasting. Super versatile. If you make this don’t forget to tag me and tell me how you liked it @zheelicious! I can’t wait to see your creations!! 

Stay happy, stay hungry!
