As we prepare to celebrate the triumph of good over evil, fasting becomes an integral part of this auspicious occasion. But what about our beloved pets who are so used to their daily non-vegetarian goodness. Many pet parents often end up feeling uncomfortable about cooking meat-based dishes at home during this sacred time.

The good news is that there are plenty of nutritious and protein-rich vegetarian alternatives that can satisfy your pet's taste buds and dietary needs. Here are five delicious vegetarian recipes that will keep your furry friends full, satiated and healthy throughout Navratri -
