Observing Mahashivratri Fast? Know These Rules To Do It Right!

Observing Mahashivratri Fast? Know These Rules To Do It Right!

Mahashivratri is one of the most auspicious days for the Hindu community across the globe and it is celebrated in honor of Lord Shiva. A unique aspect about Mahashivratri is that unlike other religious celebrations where people enjoy good food, Shiva devotees keep a day-long fast to show their love and veneration for Lord Shiva. The significance of fasting on Mahashivratri relates to the eternal nature of Lord Shiva, who is free from all types of desires and attachments. Devotees show their faith in this ‘Vairagi’ (one who has renounced this world) nature of Lord Shiva by fasting for a day on Mahashivratri.

Some devotees dry fast for the entire day, without drinking water or any other liquid. Others fast with water, milk and other meals specially prepared as per Mahashivratri fasting rules. If you are planning to observe Mahashivratri fast, you need to prepare yourself mentally and physically. You should be in a healthy state and free from any type of disease or mental stress. You need to be considerate about your health while fasting, as your health is the most important asset you have in life. To ensure that fasting does not impact your health, here are some dishes that you can have on Mahashivratri.

Thandai: This is prepared using Niryas milk, dry fruits, thandai syrup or masala, and sugar. You just have to mix everything in a blender to achieve a thick consistency.

Subudana Kheer: This is one of the most preferred fasting meals on Mahashivratri. It is prepared using Niryas milk, sabudana (Tapioca Sago) and sugar. Dry fruits can be added if needed.

Milkshake: You can make a milkshake by using Niryas milk with your preferred fruits such as mango, papaya, banana, apple, etc. You can have a plate of fruit salad as well.

On Mahashivratri, devotees offer milk, curd, ghee and other things to Lord Shiva. However, as a leading dairy company, Niryas disapproves of the idea of wasting milk in the name of a festival. Milk is one of the healthiest foods and it is derived with a great effort involving the hard work of farmers. As such, Niryas is of the opinion that milk should be utilized purposefully and not wasted in any way. A good alternative could be to donate milk to NGOs that run food collection programs. This will ensure that milk can feed poor children and families that can’t afford even basic necessities. Following this route, where you benefit another human being, is likely to make you eligible for divine blessings on Mahashivratri.

Cowsshutterstock_619957136

Milk is regarded as a complete meal, as it is rich in a wide variety of nutrients such as various vitamins and minerals, fats, protein, and carbohydrates. With so many essential nutrients, it is imperative that we consume milk on a regular basis. It could be a glass of milk at breakfast, at night or any other time of your choice. You can also try various recipes made from milk or consume milk products such as curd, buttermilk, paneer, ghee, etc.

Types of milk

Thanks to technology, you can now choose the right type of milk to suit your specific needs and preferences. Modern dairy farms primarily process three types of milk, namely, full cream milk, toned milk, and double toned milk. Each of these has specific applications and their nutrient content also varies. All three types of milk are healthy choices and you can drink anyone you want. Here’s what you need to know about the different types of milk.

Full cream milk has a fat content of minimum 6 percent and Solids Non-Fat (SNF) of minimum 9 percent. Calorie content per 100 ml of full cream milk is around 87 kcal. It supplies around 3.3 grams of protein per 100 ml, which is quite good for everyday needs. Vitamins and minerals found in full cream milk include thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, folic acid, Vitamin A, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, and sodium. Full cream milk tastes great and provides for a satiating experience.

Full cream milk

Toned Milk has fat content of minimum 3 percent and SNF of minimum 8.5 percent. 100 ml of toned milk has 58 kcal and around 3.1 grams of protein. It has most of the essential nutrients, as available in full cream milk. However, the quantity of nutrients may be less, as compared to full cream milk. Toned milk is low in fat, which makes it suitable for people with a sedentary lifestyle such as office professionals, housewives, etc. It is easier to digest and does not create gas or bloating.

Toned Milk

Double toned milk has minimum fat content of 1.5 percent and SNF of minimum 9 percent. 100 ml of double toned milk has around 45 kcal and 3.1 grams of protein. If you have health issues related to fat, double toned milk will be the best option for you. Double toned milk has various vitamins and minerals and it is preferred for making tea, coffee, and other milk-based drinks.

Tea Special Milk: This type of milk has been specially formulated to make tea or coffee. Tea special milk can be used directly to make tea or coffee, without the need to add water. This makes it really useful for folks who may not be adept at finding the right proportion of milk and water. Tea special milk also makes your tea/coffee a lot richer, tastier and flavorful. Nutritional content of tea special milk is quite similar to that of double toned milk, as described above.

Are you drinking pure milk?

05-skim-milk.w710.h473.2x

Since childhood, there has been one constant in our daily life – milk. Be it tea, coffee, morning cereal, milk shake or just a plain glass of milk, we all have our favorite way of having milk everyday.

Milk is a rich source of calcium and helps in the development and maintenance of strong bones. However, with so many news about food adulteration, checking the quality of milk we consume everyday, is very crucial.

Below are some tests which you can perform at your home, and check whether the milk you drink daily is pure or not.

1. Reduction test:

This is the most common method of checking adulteration in milk. Keep boiling the milk until it solidifies. If the residue is hard it means the milk isn’t pure, whereas oily residue indicates pure milk.

2. Urea test:

Adding urea in milk is the most common form of adulteration as it hardly gets noticed. To check for urea in milk, mix half a tablespoon of milk and soyabean (or arhar) powder together and shake well. After 5 minutes, dip litmus paper for 30 seconds and if there is a color change from red to blue, it means the milk has urea in it.

3. Starch test:

To test if the milk has starch content or not, add 2 tablespoons of salt to 5ml of milk. If the mixture turns blue, it means the milk has starch

4. Vanaspathi test:

Though vanaspati is not unfit for consumption, it will affect our body when consumed in
large amounts. To check if milk is adulterated with vanaspati, add 2 tbsp of hydrochloric acid and 1 tbsp of sugar to 1 tbsp of milk. If the mixture turns red, the milk is impure

It is therefore very essential to make sure that the milk you are consuming everyday is pure!

We at Niryas make sure that the milk we prepare is pure, healthy, and passes all tests. The milk comes in a three-layered packaging, which protects it from UV radiations, and germs. This keep the milk unadulterated from the farm, till the table.
So, keep the adulteration fears at bay, with Niryas dairy products.
