Dear Readers,

This is festive season. We will have Karva Chauth, Ahoi Ashtami, and then will come the five day long Diwali festival. Diwali is my favorite festival - I will write about Diwali and start posting the Diwali recipes soon.

This year Karwa Chauth is on Oct 27th/28th- On this auspicious day women keep fast for the long life of their husbands. If you want to know more about Karwa chauth please check wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karva_Chauth

In our family, it is a tradition to make gulgule for the Karwa Chauth Pooja. Also, traditionally vaishnav food is made for all the festivals and fasting days. So we do not use any onions and garlic in Karwa Chauth feast. Here I am sharing recipes without onion and also with onion as many of Pujabi friends don't mind onion and garlic. Please follow your family tradition....

Ahoi Ashtami falls just after 4 days of karwa Chauth. This year Ahoi Ashthami will be observed on Oct 31st. On this auspicious day women keep fast for the long life and well wishing of their kids. Diwali falls just after a week after Ahoi Ashthami.

Upcoming festivals are-

Karva Chauth is on Oct 27/28th
Ahoi Ashtami is on Oct 31st
Dhanteras is on November 5th
Narak Chaudas is on November 6th
Diwali is on November 7th
Annakoot/ Padwa will be on November 8th
And Bhai Dooj is on November 9th

So first let's make some special food for karwa chauth.

Happy Karwa Chauth!
