In India, our yearly calendar is enriched with hues of festivity and various auspicious occasions which we continue to celebrate throughout the year.
Maha Shivratri is one such grand day of festivity, where the devotees of Lord Shiva gather around to appease their beloved deity with abounding offerings.
The auspicious occasion of Maha Shivratri is celebrated in honour of the conflux between Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati and the day is usually observed by the fasting of the devotees all through the day.
The fast too, comes with variations and whilst some prefer to go on an absolute fast without even a drop of water, others usually prefer dishes which can be taken during the Vrat.
As for the dishes, as the day is usually celebrated by going to temples and offering milk, curd and ghee as Abhishekham to Lord Shiva, we generally opt for lighter cuisines that will keep us energized without being heavy on the stomach.
Hence, we have shared 25 such dishes - ranging from sweet to savoury, North Indian to South Indian - which will keep your hunger pangs at bay while you stand on the long queues to offer your prayers.
So, take a look at the list below to know what can you indulge your taste buds in this Maha Shivratri. Our dishes are simple, easy to make and we lend you step by step instructions as well, so that you could make them without any sort of a trouble.
