Janmashtami Fasting Recipes | Janmashtami Recipes

Krishna Janmashtami falls on 17th Aug 2014 this year also known as Gokulashtami, Ashtami Rohini, Srikrishna Jayanthi and many other names is celebration to mark birth of Krishna, eight avatar of Vishnu. All over India Janmashtami celebrated in different manner like in maharashtra dahi handi is played and popular which one can see in lots of Hindi movie. In most part of India swings and cradles place outside home or in pooja room to mark Krishna's birth and childhood. In North India fast is observe for full day and devotee eat after mid night which belived to time Krishna was born. In my home full day fast is observe without eating anything or only fruits are consumed but you can also follow and make Vrat (fasting) food to observe fast (image from google).
