Paratha Vrat Treat
Singhara Paratha Recipe

This flour is used to prepare foods for religious festivals, including Navratri. It is an allowed food during fasting days because it is not made of grain.

Singhara/Water chestnuts are a perfect food to form part of a healthy food during navratri fast. They are high in nutrients and low in calories and almost fatless. Half a cup of water chestnuts contains just 0.1 gram fat. All this makes them a healthy food option.
