karwa chauth is around the corner… so i would like to share some recipes which are already posted on my blog.
on this day begins at dawn and we have gobi paratha or aloo paratha with raita and some sweet dish… usually suji halwa or vermicelli kheer or feni.
sometimes we have chaat recipes. if not parathas than we have aloo gobi with phulkas.
all these delicious food are consumed before sunrise. i also have tea and then lots of water too. coz the whole day goes in fasting or vrat without eating anything and even drinking water.
after the rituals and pooja are over during the day we wait for the moon to come up. after seeing the moon through a seive and offering water to the moon we seek its blessings. the wives are given the first sip of water and the first morsel of food – usually mathri by their husbands.
plan your karwa chauth menu in advance. so your whole day goes smooth and hassle free. eg. you can make the chutneys a day before. also mathris can be made a day or two before.
enjoy making the recipes and having them so that you are able to fast the whole day………
please note that some of the recipes listed below have onion and garlic in them as i did not make them on the occasion of karwa chauth but on some regular days. if making these recipes on karwa chauth, then do omit the onions and garlic from them.
i pray and hope everyone has a fulfilled karwa chauth and this karwa chauth adds more harmony, understanding and love into the marriage. I hope both partners help each other in the inner and outer well being of body, mind and soul.
