Indian Party Menus ~ Navarathri Bhajan Bhojanam

Some delicious options for different occasions, that’s Indian Party Menus. In the hope that you would find this new series helpful when planning your party food menu.

*****

From a beginning of handful of people last year, my community women’s group, Sindoor Sangham, has grown to 30 member strength now. For sharing ideas and activities, and for keeping the communication open we also have a private website. These days I spend considerable amount of time and energy in developing and maintaining the burgeoning Sindoor Sangham. We plan and do different activities throughout the year. For this year’s Navarathri, we had Sri Lalitha Devi Bhajana sessions on each day of 9 days at a sindoor’s residence. At my place the bhajan session was followed by bhojanam. Had to put an extra effort for preparations, but it was worth sharing and celebrating the festival and the feast with Sindoor members.

Here is the menu for the Devi Navarathri bhajana bhojanam.
