Is it alright if people take specially prepared delicacies on the day of fasting?In North India, the Navratri festival has begun since yesterday. Many people observe 'fasts' during Navratri. It may range from observing fasts only on the first day and last day of the Navratri to observing fast on all the nine days.
I have noticed that specially prepared delicacies are sold in the market for 'celebration of fasts' days. Such delicacies range from special sweets to deep fried spicy delicacies. Some of such dishes are Singhare ke Atte ka Samosa, Kuttu Ka Dosa, Kele ka Kebab, Dry fruit Kheer, Badam Laddu, Kaju Katli and what not. Many people enjoy such dishes on the pretext of observing fasts.
