So, the season of festivals is on the way. This year Navratri starts on October 5th and ends on October 13th. This is a festival full of worship, dance and music.
Navratri festival celebrates the worship of 
Goddess Shakti ( the warrior Goddess), 
Lakshmi ( Goddess of wealth ) and 
Saraswati ( the Goddess of knowledge ). 
Each goddess is worshipped for three days in turn. The festival culminates with Dussehra ( Vijayadashami ), the victory of good over evil, on the tenth day.
During this traditional occasion, a range of dishes are prepared. Every region in India celebrates this festival in its own way. 
In South India, people do worship of deities, keep Golu and make sundals or sweet recipes to offer as prasadam. In North India, nine days fasting or vrat is observed for peace, happiness and harmony.
