On this day, women wake up before sunrise to observe the rituals. They start their day with sargi, which consists of a heavy and nutritious meal consisting of ghee-laden halvah, dried fruit, and fresh fruit given to them by their mothers-in-law. After that, they observe a rigorous fast without food or water for the whole day. Only after seeing the moon do they perform further rituals with their husbands and worship the celestial body to break the fast.
According to Drik Panchang, Karwa Chauth coincides with Sankashti Chaturthi – a day of fasting for Lord Ganesha.
