Be it any Indian holiday, it should be celebrated with something sweet. Right after Navratri fasting and Ashtami puja comes Ram Navami, which marks the birth day of Lord Rama. The day always falls on the ninth and final day of the Navratri festival, when devotees who fast for the nine days of Navratri break their fast with a sumptuous meal.

From kheer to halwa, a multitude of sweet recipes can be prepared and served for the enjoyment of the whole family.
