Chaitra Navratri Spring Workshop (virtual)
With the arrival of the Indian heat, comes the festival of Chaitra Navratri, a nine-day Hindu festival that marks the transition from spring to summer. The festivals of Navratri in general occur at times of seasonal change, with both Chaitra Navratri and Sharad Navratri (the one that occurs in the fall) happening when the length of the day and night are similar. Both are times of eating particular foods, fasting, and/or eating smaller quantities of food to support our bodies through seasonal changes. In the Hindu context, fasting does not necessarily mean no consumption of food. Often it is eating a special diet of food and fasting foods can be quite tasty. Join us in this Chaitra Navrati workshop to learn how to make a faraali (fasting compliant) Gujarati dish.
