WHEN IS MAHASHIVARATRI CELEBRATED?
Every month in Hindu calendar has listed the thirteenth day of the darker half of the month as Shivaratri i.e. ‘Shiva’s great night’. Shivaratri falls on the Krishna paksha, in the month of Magha and is celebrated all over the country as ‘Mahashivaratri’. It is believed that on this night Shivji performed the Tandava or the prehistoric creation, preservation and destruction dance.
Here are some of the Mahashivratri vrat recipes that you can enjoy during fasting. I follow a very simple diet and refrain from consuming onion and garlic dishes during vrat. But I do understand that some follow a very restricted diet and avoid eating few spices and veggies that are mentioned in my recipes.
DISCLAIMER – Some families follow a very restricted diet and do not consume veggies like carrots, peas, and beans. Feel free to omit them and plan your meal accordingly.
Likewise, spices like amchur powder, mustard seeds, haldi , chaat masala, kalonji are also not consumed. Please leave them out and follow your family vrat guidelines. Mahashivratri Vrat Recipes
