Dal Stuffed Poori

In some communities, people undergo rigorous fasts during Navratri that lasts for all the nine days of the festival. The festival of Navratri culminates in Navami. On this day, Kanya Puja is performed. Nine young girls, representing the nine forms of Goddess Durga, are worshiped. Their feet are washed as a mark of respect for the Goddess and then they are offered food, including poori, channa and Halwa.
