laxmi vummadi,

You can eat fruits. But you may omit the dal.

You can eat Sabudana Kheer.Don't put raisins, almonds etc. (I think if you have this Kheer and chapathis with some curry you will feel better. My friend use to do Santoshi Puja regularly for many years. What I observed was when she was unable to do complete fasting she use to have bananas and milk. She use to eat this Kheer, chapati (No salt) and some curry in the evening.

1 tbsp Sago (Sabudana) 2 cups Milk Sugar - to taste


Wash and allow sago to fluffy up in the drained moisture.Mix into the milk and put to boil.

Stir continuously till boiling is attained. Cook on low till the sago is fully cooked. Stir occasionally.The sago should easily press flat between thumb and finger to be done.

Stir in the sugar.Boil further 2 minutes, serve hot.


Fasting is a Hindu tradition to please God, by controlling and curbing one's desires. Fasts most commonly known as Upvaas or Vrat are the days when devotees refrain themselves from regular food.

You can eat only restricted number of food items, and at restricted times like phalahaar (Fruits) or non-cereal food.

Essentially, this means no lentils or grains.

Also salt is restricted to Sendha Namak or rock salt. As for masalaas and vegetables, different people follow different rules.
