Vedic texts such as the Bhagavad Gita categorize foods in three different systems: Sattvic, Rajasic, and Tamasic, and only sattvik vegetables should be consumed during Navratri fasts or any other fast.

Ingredients with prana or a life force, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, constitute Sattvik food.

On the other hand, Rajasic or Tamasic foods that are generally bitter, sour, pungent, salty, or dry should be avoided in order to prevent negativity, dullness, and restlessness.

As a result, we adopt a simple lifestyle during the Navratri fasts or any other fasts and turn to sattvik bhojan.

These vegetables like spinach, broccoli, cabbage, Potato, Sweet potato, Pumpkin, Colocasia, Raw banana, Raw papaya, Bottle gourd, Tomatoes, Ginger, Lemon, Yam or Suran, Carrots are sattvik in nature, provide lots of energy, keep you hydrated and have mild flavors.

Vegetables you should avoid in Navratri fasting or any other fast are Onions and garlic as they are tamasic in nature. Other vegetables that are considered tamasic may include leeks, shallots, and mushrooms.

You can use any other atta that is used for fasting if you can’t procure singhara ka atta.
