Egg less Buckwheat Apple Banana Muffin Recipe

Navaratras are always special to me. During these days, the atmosphere  becomes so serene that it takes me to a space within myself, which is so full of joy and wonder. That is the reason I always wait for navaratras. Since my childhood, I have been observing navaratri celebrations in my family. We used to keep fast. My mom used to make a whole lot of dishes for us. At that time, it used to be a feasting time for us. As kids, we didn’t feel the importance of these auspicious days. We only knew that everyday something special will be made which we used to devour like a glutton.

Navaratri literally means ‘nine nights’ in Sanskrit. During these nine nights and ten days, the three forms of goddess – Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati are worshipped. During these days, the puja or havanas we do help to condition our mind to a set of patterns that are conducive to growth. The main purpose of navratri celebrations, though, is the triumph of good over evil. It increases positivity in us and reduces negativity.

Navaratri is celebrated twice in a year- Ashwin navratri at the beginning of winter (between September and October) and Chaitra navaratri at the beginning of summer (between March and April). This year Chaitra navaratri will start from Friday, 8th April and will be celebrated till 16th April.

With the beginning of navaratri, begins the celebration. And no celebration is complete without scrumptious food. In my home, now my kids have also started fasting, so they want different food all the time. In addition to the regular navatri food that I generally make, like samvat pulao, kheer, vada, kuttu atta puri etc., I thought of treating them with muffins as kids love muffins. So I made muffins from buckwheat flour which can be consumed during fasting. I have never made them earlier, so was a bit skeptical that how they would turn out to be. But when they were being baked, first the aroma of cinnamon and apple filled the whole house. When the muffins came out of oven they were so good that we all were finding it difficult to resist the temptation of eating them.

I was feeling elated as my experiment with the muffins was a success. Though the texture and taste of the muffins was different, still they tasted so well that they were gone just after my taking the pics.
