what is ekadashi -Ekadasi is spiritual day in Hinduism and Jainism that occurs twice in each lunar month and is marked by fasting or partial fasting. The name is the Sanskrit word for the number 11. The lunar month is divided into two 14-day periods, one when the moon waxes (sukla paksha) and one when the moon wanes (krishna paksha). Ekadasi is the eleventh day of each of these lunar phases.
Fasting varies by tradition with some choosing to avoid all food during Ekadasi, while others avoid all beans and grains and anything made from those ingredients.
so this cook book explains cooking food items that are non-grain.
