The sixth day of Navratri is dedicated to Goddess Katyayani, who is one of the most powerful forms of Shakti. Also known as the warrior goddess, Katyayani is considered to be the most violent forms of Goddess Parvati. She has four arms and carries a sword fearlessly. She is the daughter of Sage Katyayan and rides on a lion. Many devotees offer honey to the Goddess on the 6th day of the Navratri as it is considered to be the symbol of both health and sweetness.
Keeping the same in mind, today I have prepared a unique recipe known as the crispy honey Arbi wedges. Check out the full recipe below:
