The second day of Navratri is dedicated to Maa Brahmacharini.
Brahmacharini appears in the form of a maiden girl filled with wisdom. She has two hands carrying a rosary and a kamandal. She is believed to bless the devotees with eternal knowledge and bliss. Goddess Brahmacharini is a lover of simple food and offerings. To worship the goddess, the devotees serve a bhog of mishri /sugar and fruits. Keeping the same in mind, I present you with a simple and easy to prepare bhog recipe that is made up of banana sugar and dry fruits.
All of us are very much aware that bananas are a healthy source of fiber, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and various antioxidants and phytonutrients. On the other hand, dry fruits are traditionally known to be a powerhouse of all essential nutrients. Below, check out the entire recipe.
