Recipes for Karwa Chauth

Karwa Chauth (Karva Chauth) is a popular festival from Northern India predominantly celebrated in the states of Rajasthan, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Punjab. On this day, married women observe fast for long life of their husbands.

Karwa Chauth Vidhi, Karva Chauth Procedure

The word Karwa Chauth has been derived from Hindi word “Karwa” meaning “a small earthen pot” and “Chauth” means “fourth”, referring to the time in which the festival falls. Before the sunrise, women eat fruits and sweets. The fruits and sweets are sent by their mother-in-law and this ritual is known as 'sargi'.

All the women observing fast, come together and sing songs and perform puja. They do not consume anything during the day except for water. The fast is broken only after seeing the moon.

Once the moon rises, the women see its reflection in a thali of water through a sieve or dupatta. The husband then offers her wife with a sip of water and thus breaks her fast. They offer water to the moon and seek blessings for prosperity and safety.
