The day of Mahashivratri is very special for the devotees of Bholenath. According to beliefs, the festival of Mahashivratri is celebrated to commemorate the marriage of Mother Parvati and Lord Shiva. In such a situation, Mahakal is worshiped in temples with great pomp on this day. Every year Mahashivratri is celebrated on the Chaturdashi day of Krishna Paksha of Phalgun month.

Talking about this year, this year this date is falling on 8th March. In such a situation, people have also started preparations for it. On the special occasion of Mahashivratri, people worship with all their hearts and also observe fast. Especially unmarried girls keep fast on Shivratri to get their desired groom.

If you are also thinking of observing a fast on Mahashivratri this year, then definitely offer a fruit plate to Bholenath on this day. In this article, we are going to tell you about some dishes of fruit thali.

Buckwheat puri
If you want to make something during the fast that will keep your stomach full, then definitely make Kuttu ki Puri. Buckwheat Puri is the best option to complete the fruit plate. The special thing is that it is also very easy to make.

Cheese curry
Although people often make only potato gravy vegetables during the fast, if you are thinking of making something different, then you can make Paneer Lababdar without onion and garlic.

Samak rice
