South Indian, North Indian Navratri Recipes for 9 days golu at home . In this post, I have framed a list of Navarathri prasadam recipes of Tamil nadu, Andhra and North India for nine days as per my readers request. Last year I made a detailed post on how to keep golu at home. At that time, many of my readers asked me to make a post on Navratri naivedyam recipes list. So today I have come up with the list of prasad recipes like rice varieties, sweets, sundal recipes/snacks based on South Indian and North Indian Navratri festival. Hope this post will be helpful to you all.

Here is the picture of our last year’s Golu!

Navratri recipes for 9 days golu at home



Do refer my Navaratri recipes collection for more ideas.

TAMIL NADU RECIPES FOR NAVARATHRI

In Tamil nadu, during Navarathri people worship Goddess Durga for the first three days, Goddess Lakshmi for the second three days and Goddess Saraswathi for the last 3 days. People used to offer some sweets and sundal recipes for God in front of Golu. Even though navarathri is a 9 days festival, the day that comes before Navarathri i.e Amavasya and the day after Navratri where we celebrate the victory of good over evil as Vijayadasami, comes to 11 days. Married ladies & young girls are invited to home and we give thaamboolam along with a sundal variety or sweet as Golu prasadham. We usually keep the golu on Pradhamai day evening. So we offer sweet pongal/sakkarai pongal and chana sundal/kondakadalai sundal for neivedyam and we offer some fruits, rock candy on Vijayadasami day.

I have shared this table of naivedyam recipes by referring Nataraja Deekshithar’s blog post. He had given a clear explanation about Navaratri celebration in temples and its importance. He has also mentioned the list of flowers, leaves, kolam, fruits, Neivedyam and Raaga to be used for Navratri 9 days. I took the neivedyam recipes, added 2 more recipes for each day morning & evening neivedyam and framed this table. I have given different sweet recipes, rice variety and sundal recipes for 9 days. You can alter the sweets and sundal varieties based on your liking. But the rice variety given here is as per the tradition according to Deekshithar’s post. So you can follow the same. I have linked all the recipes to my post. You can click on that to view the respective ones. I am yet to post few sundal recipes in this list. I will do it this week.  I hope this table would be useful for people who wants to get some ideas for Navratri recipes. Ok, lets check the table below.
