Ekadashi: A fast observed by young and old

Ekadashi: The right things to eat

Ekadashi: For the Pious

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. 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).

That said, fasting does not mean staying hungry all day. There are some rules as to what can be eaten and what cannot, on a fasting day. This may vary from community to community. Many avoid grains like rice or wheat, some do not even have greens like coriander, while others shun curds. While formulating these recipes, we have kept most of the general guidelines in mind, but depending on the rules followed by your family, you can tweak the recipe slightly or skip some ingredients.

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.

We have got many more fasting recipes on our website, which you can check out to keep yourself satiated not only on Ekadashi but also during other fasts like Navratri.
