Shivratri Fasting recipes Pratibha Jani
So, today as I woke up this morning, I thought of how we used to gt up early in the morning and cook fasting recipes for the day. We also used to cook for the members of the family who did not fat so we did two set of cooking on that day. Fun right? Yup. Actually it was. Then, once all the kitchen was taken care of, we used to go to Shiva temple. Any temple close to home works just fine.So many times I was also very lucky to be a tour guide at the famous Elephanta caves in Mumbai on the day of shivratri. I loved it so much.
I still do my temple visits here even in NJ. We are lucky to find Shiva temples in our area that do the special Pujas and follow the Hindu calendar days to perform the Puja.
Really it doesn’t matter if you follow the physical visit to the temple social /cultural/religious set of customs or if you can just take some time for yourself in introspection and try to reach your inner self, to find that YOU within your self, and /or try to tap into the higher authority that makes the universe and beyond go around. Take a few minutes for yourself and just be at peace with yourself. Meditate and do some pranayam. Do some Shiva chants/shlokas, prayers , aartis, what ever works for you but do something. So here are my this morning’s fasting recipes: cooking recipes all ready to enjoy and share. This morning I made

Let me know how your day goes today.
