On this day, women wake up early in the morning to eat sargi, which is a traditional meal they receive from their mothers-in-law. Here's what Shilpa Shetty shared on her Insta story. 

Pheni is an important part of the Sargi thali. It is flaky rice-flour roasted in ghee. Pheni is also known as Khaja sweet or Suterfeni or Laccha. Dry fruits are known to be packed with energy and nutrients. Mathri or mathiya is a Punjabi flaky bread munchie which is spiced with carom seeds, black pepper, dry fenugreek leaves and jeera.

History, Significance and Importance of Karwa Chauth in India

The origin of Karwa Chauth can be traced back to Mahabharata when Savitri begged the God of Death, Lord Yama, for her husband’s soul. Another episode in the epic talks about Pandavas and their wife Draupadi.

Arjuna went to the Nilgiris to pray and meditate for a few days, worried about his safety Draupadi sought her brother Krishna’s help. He advised her to observe a strict fast just like Goddess Parvati did for her husband Shiva’s safety. Draupadi adhered to it, and soon Arjuna returned home safely.

When is Karwa Chauth in 2019?

Observed mainly in states like Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Rajasthan and parts of Uttar Pradesh, Karwa Chauth falls on the fourth day of the Hindu month of Kartik in the lunisolar calendar. This year it is being observed on October 17.
