The Chhath Puja festival will take place from November 8-11 this year. Dedicated to the sun god Lord Surya and his sister Shashthi Devi or Chhathi Maiya, the festival is celebrated in Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand, as well as in the southern part of Nepal, beginning six days after Diwali.

The festival is celebrated with great pomp and fervor throughout its four-day span, with the third day, falling on November 10 of this year, being marked as the main day of the festival. People perform fasting rituals, stand in the sacred river, and worship the setting and rising sun.

The festival also sees several delicacies prepared in honor of Lord Surya. The festival is famous for the traditional sweets offered as prasad and the strictly vegetarian food prepared during the duration of the festival, which does not contain common salt, onions or garlic.

Here are some traditional recipes to prepare for Chhath Puja 2021:

Thekua:
