It's that time of the year when the festivities officially begin. Navaratri 2018 begins on October 10 and many people would begin seven to eight days of fasting from this day. One of the essential ingredients eaten during the Navratri fast is sabudana. Sabudana is a good source of energy and is, therefore, a preferred food during upvas.

Sabudana can be used for making various dishes like khichdi and even kheer. Dishes made out of sabudana taste delicious if the ingredient has been properly soaked. For perfect consistency, ideally wash your sabudana on a strainer overnight, sprinkle water on it about three-four times before you sleep and cook it the next morning. In fact, even before cooking, sprinkle water on the sabudana twice or thrice in shorter intervals till you finally cook it.
