Hello everyone

Auspicious Navratri days are continued and many of us are fasting these days. We too observe fast during every Navratri , on very first day and ashtami . There are many people who used to perform fast all over Navratri period. So the fast special meal we take these days matters a lot. Generally people go for deep fried snacks and ghee laden high calorie dishes while fasting, which is completely wrong and adversely affect their health. We should try to consume lots of fibre and nutrient rich food and let our digestive system rest a bit. So instead of having lots of fried and high calories fast special treats go for some healthy yet filling alternative.

Today I am sharing such a very healthy ,quick , delicious as well as filling recipe with you. Do try and let me know your experience.


Serves: 2 big servings
Time: 10 mins max.


1 medium cucumber, finely chopped
1 medium tomato, finely chopped
2 potatoes, boiled and finely chopped
1/2 apple, finely chopped ( optional but adds extra crunch and flavor, of course)
Black pepper powder, as per taste
Sendha namak ( rock salt) , as per taste
Lemon juice , as per taste
1 tbsp coriander leaves, finely chopped
2-3 green chilies , finely chopped( as per taste)
1/2 cup peanuts, roasted


Mix well everything together in a big bowl, except peanuts. Adjust seasoning as per your taste.
Add peanuts only when ready to serve , to maintain crunch .

* You can also use carrots, sweet potato or any other fruit or veggie of your choice.

* Don't add peanuts too early otherwise they will turn soft and soggy.

This can also be consumed on our regular routine as a healthy snacks or breakfast substitute. If having on regular day then can also use some chaat masala to give extra flavour to it.

* If you are a health conscious and weight watcher fellow then can have it as a meal replacement too.
It's just not a fast special dish but a full nutrition packed healthy meal for anyone anytime.
Not only healthy but it gives just burst of flavours in your mouth and leave you fully filled and satisfied , even on a fasting day .

Hope you all will love this healthy cum delicious fasting treat and  definitely give it a try. Please pour your valuable comments and suggestions here, they meant a lot.

Happy cooking....
