With the weather being so pleasant, we know you must be planning to snuggle up this weekend. But let us remind you that this weekend is going to be full of preparations. Why, you ask? Don’t tell us that you have forgotten that Mahashivratri is just two days away. You’ll need to prepare for the puja and the nirjal vrat too.

Mahashivratri will be celebrated on 1st March by Hindus across the globe and if you are one of them, then we have got you covered. One of the most vital parts of the celebration is the nirjal vrat and millions observe it to express their devotion towards lord Shiva. However, if one cannot observe a nirjal fast, they can surely keep a phalahar fast that involves eating sattvic food throughout the day. If you are observing a fast for the first time, we understand that you might fret. If you are afraid that you might feel fatigued and weak at the end of the day, then we have got you covered with some high-energy foods that will keep you full and enlivened all day. Check them out:

1. Vrat Wale Dhokle For Breakfast

We all love light and spongy dhoklas when it comes to a wholesome breakfast. Although you can’t eat cereal during a vrat, you can always make spongy dhoklas with vrat-friendly samak rice on Mahashivratri.

2. Sabudana Khichdi And Vrat Wale Aloo For Lunch

Sabudana is the OG vrat food in India and one can’t deny this fact. The easy-to-digest and nutrient-rich food is perfect to energize you on the big day. Make some sabudana khichdi for lunch and serve it with vrat waale aloo on the side for a filling meal.
