This year Krishna Janmashtami is celebrated on both 18th and 19th of August; but the fast will be observed on the 19th of August. This is because according to many pronounced astrologers, The Ashtami tithi will be Udaya tithi on 19th of August.
Rohini nakshatra under which lord Krishna was born is not falling on Ashtami tithi this year.
Quite similar rules are applied on the food recipes of Janmashtami as of Navratri.
So, now let’s take a look at food items that you can consume during your Janmashtami fast.
Sago, or a delicacy of sabudana or Tapioca pearls. Sabudana khichdi is a combination of potatoes and peanuts. It is a gluten free dish that you can eat during the Navratri, ekadashi and Mahashivratri fast as well.
A Savory delight is a combination of barnyard millet and potatoes; and is high in nutritional value and you can eat during the fast.
Quick and easy to make recipe is kuttu khichdi which is made from buckwheat groats, potatoes and peanuts is a super food to be consumed while fasting.
This delightful dish of mashed potatoes made without onion or garlic is a quick bite.
Kaddu or Pumpkin dish is a very delicious and easy vegan option, blended with spices and herbs. This is a satvik recipe without onion or garlic.
Another tasty hit for the occasions of fasting is vrat ke jeera aloo that are not just super quick and easy to make but also a very nutritious bite to have while fasting.
Our all time favourite recipe is kuttu ki pooriyan. Rich in nutritional values, crispy and fried, these tasty bites are like a lifesaver.
Skipping breakfast or tea is a very good option as you will be fasting throughout the day; skipping tea or breakfast will avoid acidity or gastric problems.
It is hard to resist the tasty delights of vrat but if you have high cholesterol issues then skipping them for your good health is totally worth it. Instead consuming fruits, milk and juice will help you provide the required nutritions.
Do not consume eggs or meat on this divine day of Janmashtami.
Similar to meat and egg, regardless of fasting or not you must avoid the consumption of onion and garlic on a special occasion as Janmashtami.
