The whole nation is all geared up to celebrate one of the biggest Hindu festivals - Mahashivratri. Known as the 'Great Night Of Shiva', this year Mahashivratri falls on Friday, 21st February 2020. The festival is celebrated in the Hindu month of 'Phalguna' every year. It is believed that Shivratri commemorates the consummation of Lord Shiva's marriage ages ago. Staunch devotees stay up all night offering prayers to Lord Shiva and singing hymns and religious songs. Temples are decorated and thronged by people all day and night who make sure to wear new clothes, give bath to Shiva Ling in the temple and make offerings including milk, fruits and bael leaves.
It's also common for many devotees to observe fast on this pious day. Some of them keep the extreme nirjaala fast that required them to go without any food and water. Some people observe phalhar fast, wherein they consume only milk and fruits. And there are some people who keep sattvik fast, which allows them to eat light sattvik meals, including dishes made with pseudo cereals and grains like sabudana singhara or kuttu.
So, instead of having rotis made with regular atta, you can have roti-like dishes made with these vrat-special grains. If you are also planning to observe fast for Mahashivratri but can't go without food the whole day, this recipe of sabudana aloo cheela is perfect for you. Both sabudana (tapioca pearls) and aloo (potatoes) are tremendously satiating and also provide bouts of energy to the body, helping us sated and active all the day long till we break our fast.
