This year, we will celebrate Karwa Chauth on 19th October 2016. Earlier Karwa Chauth was popular only in North India but now throughout India specially you beautiful ladies who got married in past 10 years also celebrate this festival no matter from which location of India you are from.
My mom is South Indian and we never celebrated this festival. I got married 5 years back to a North Indian family and it’s one of our important festivals. On my 1st Karwa Chauth my mom in law told me that it’s important to prepare Kadhi as it’s offered to moon god and later consumed as prasad. Rest I can prepare anything I wish. Initially I was very confused but somehow I managed.
On my 1st Karwa Chauth, I prepared 11 dishes for my dearest hubby and yes among these dishes majority are my favorite too. Here are easy and best recipes for this Karwa Chauth.
