Sankashti Chaturthi Vrat Recipes, Fasting Foods for Sankashti Chathurthi Vrat

Sankashti Chaturthi Vrat Recipes, Fasting Foods for Sankashti Chathurthi Vrat. Sankashti Chathurthi Vrat is considered the ultimate vratha for devotees of Lord Ganesha. Observed on the 4th day of the Krishna Paksha (4th day after each Poornima), this vratha is believed to remove all obstacles and absolve your sins. It is also known as Sankat Hara Chathurthi or Sankasthahara Chathurthi. There are several stories associated with the greatness of Sankashti Chathurthi.

Panchamrut, Panchamrit

Panchamrut, Panchamrit

One story revolves around how Indra was once grounded because a sinner set sight on him while he was flying across King Shurasena’s kingdom. His vahana could start flying again only after he gained the merits of a person who had observed the Sankashti Chathurthi Vrat. In another story, the moon loses his lustre when he becomes egoistic about his good looks and teases Ganesha about his trunk and pot-belly.

Thereafter, he regains his lustre by worshipping Lord Ganesha and begging his pardon. There is one more fable about a sinner who went to heaven because she was ill and could not take food on Sankashti Chathurthi day. On feeling better, she had a morsel of food after moonrise. Even though she did this without her knowledge, she still gained the merits of this vratha and was taken to heaven upon her death! Indeed, there are innumerable stories about the greatness of this vratha. So, how should it be observed?

Morning of Sankashti Chathurthi

On the morning of Sankashti Chathurthi, devotees rise early, take bath and declare their intention to observe this fast. Throughout the day, they observe a full or partial fast. In the evening, at the time of moonrise, they visit a temple and participate in the puja, or they do the puja at home.

The traditional puja includes worshipping Lord Ganesh by chanting his names, offering flowers as well as traditional prasad like Modak, followed by the aarti. Some people also have the practice of reading different fables about the greatness of this vrata, a different episode for each month of the year. Sankashti Chathurthi, when it falls on a Tuesday is considered especially auspicious. It is known as Angaraki Chathurthi, as Mars or Angaraka is the presiding deity of Tuesdays. Those who wish to start observing the Sankashti Chathurthi vrat for the first time prefer to start from an Angaraki Chathurthi.

Sankashti Chaturthi

 on 05 Jan 18 12:10 PM


Today is the day of Sankashti Chathurthi. I Cleaned our Devahraa (place where home God idol''s are kept & worshipped everyday). Decorated & Offered the flowers & garlands to lord Ganesha with true & pure heart. Here at TarlaDalal.com very nice information & importance about Sankashti Chathurthi Vrat and the food recipes we can have on account of this Vrat. I liked Sabudhan Khichdi, hence my wife most probably gives me Sabudhana Khichdi in tiffin. My Colleague also enjoyed eating this... Potato Khichdi, Faraali Misal, Faraali Pattice is the other dishes which i liked very much.
