Today, is the first day of Navaratri and I wish all my blog readers, a very happy Navaratri. This is the first day/night of saradiyo durga Puja. May Maa Durga bless everyone with happiness and prosperity. People in many parts of India observe fast during these nine days and break there fast after the evening prayer to Maa Durga. The food prepared for the people is generally with very few spices and oil. It is light for the stomach and is rich in minerals and vitamins. Eating lots of fruits and water is recommended. I have a common Indian snack that is prepared widely during these festive season. Its Aloo Tikki, normally Aloo ki tikki can have onions, garlic and ginger etc added to it, but during Navaratri, onion & garlic is not used. So, here is a simple recipe of it, that you can prepare and enjoy.
1 large potato - boiled
1 green chili
2 tbsp coriander leaves chopped
Sendha namak/salt as per taste
Smash boil potatoes, add coriander leaves, salt, chili and form small small balls. Heat a non-stick tava/griddle. Place these potato roundels and let is cook in medium flame. Add little oil and turn it. Keep turning and cooking tillboth sides turn brown. Serve hot with coriander chutney.
