Consuming grains is a big no-no during Navratri for people who are fasting. That’s why pseudo cereals like Kuttu (Buckwheat) and Singhare ka Atta (water chestnut) are consumed. Keeping 9 days long fast can take a huge toll on health and so it is very important to eat mindfully, that’s where Kuttu comes to the rescue. Since Kuttu ka atta is made from fruit seeds, it is perfect for falahar fast.
