Ekadashi Recipes, Ekadasi Vrat recipes, Ekadashi fasting recipes. Ekadashi vrat is considered to be one of the most ideal fasts. Occurring twice a month, Ekadashi is considered to be a very auspicious day and fasting on that day is believed to absolve one of sins and helps them to gain some brownie points with God!

The fast is observed all over India by many communities but specifically in Maharashtra. Young and old, and even Indians living elsewhere in the world fast on Ekadashi day. Some elders say it is the ideal fast for 8 to 80 (that is, young and old).

Potatoes, kand and sabudana are some of the common ingredients used during fasts because they taste good, make you feel full and also give you loads of energy. Crushed peanuts work wonderfully as a taste-giver for fasting foods.

From paratha and thalipeeth to khichdi and Green Chutney, you can make several dishes that are permitted on fasting days. Snacks like Kand Aloo Pakoda and Kand Sandwich not only boost your energy levels but also add a dash of fun to the fast.
