Mahashivratri Indian Sweets

We have some exciting Indian sweets made during Mahashivratrti. Who can resist a ladleful of sheera, even on a fasting day! Well, why not. Here is a lip-smacking Singhada Sheera recipe that is perfectly acceptable on fasting days as well. Roasting the water chestnut flour sufficiently, till it turns golden in colour, is very essential to bring out a rich aroma and do away with the raw smell of the flour.

Rituals during Mahashivratri

On the morning of Mahashivratri, devotees visit Shivalaya ( Shiva's temple) with a pooja thali containing flowers, bilva patra, datura fruit, milk and ghee. They then give a bath to Shiva's pind with ghee and then milk. They then offer ghee Niranjan in the temple.
