On a scale of 1 to 10, how excited are you about the long list of upcoming festivals? If you asked me, I'd say my level of excitement is too high to be measured. Suffice it to say, we're currently stark in the middle of my favourite time of the year. Because October onwards, the calendar is packed with one reason to celebrate after another. And considering the trials and tribulations of 2020, some celebration is certainly worth being psyched about!
Festivals have a way of stirring up our usual lives, don't they? Fabulous festive feasts, chances to shop till you drop, and so much time to be spent with those we love, I'm so grateful for all the occasions in the near horizon. The days of Navratri have already begun, and as we speak, a lot of us are mid-fasting. In a way, Navratri also revolves around self-control, don't you think? No alcohol, no meat, no garlic, the list of things we CAN'T do, is staggeringly long.
Thankfully, treating yourself to some delicious festival-appropriate food does not make a feature on that list. You are allowed to treat your tastebuds, so long as you abide by the festival rules and customs. So, in keeping with that sentiment, we compiled a list of the 6 best Navratri special thalis in Gurgaon city, that you can devour this festive season!
