Saatu teej is celebrated on the third day of hindu calander month bhadraprad. It is celebrated all over india by maheshwaris specially in rajasthan. Teej is incomplete without saatu pinda because after seeing the moon, the husband cuts the saatu the same way as we cut cakes on birthdays and then tastes it and the wife breaks her all day long fast. Though this is rich in calories, it is eaten with great pleasure.
