Randhan Chhath- A Day to Prepare Offerings
3rd September 2015 (Thursday)
 

Randhan Chhath, also known as Randan Chat, is a festival celebrated by the people of Gujarat in the month of Shravan (July-August), according to the Hindu calendar. It is celebrated on the sixth day of the dark fortnight of the month. It falls a day before Sitala Satam as it is not a festival in itself but a day to prepare various delicacies for Sitala Satam. Women do not observe any fast on this day nor there is any ritual to follow but they do gather together and prepare food that is to be used the next day to offer goddess.

 
Significance of the Day
 
Devotees assume that the food should not be cooked on the day of Sitala Satam as the goddess like only cold food and curses the kitchen in which food is prepared. Only those items are prepared which stay fresh for next twenty-four hours. As the day involves cooking, only women get involved in the event. They all share happiness and eagerness. Some people cook spicy food and some opt for fried items. Two of the most important sweet dishes that are prepared on the day are Kheer It is a sweet pudding made up of rice, broken wheat, milk and sugar. It is often flavored with dry fruits and cardamomand Thekua. It is a sweet snack made up of whole wheat flour, coconut, jaggery, clarified butter and cardamom. It is extremely popular in Bihar and Jharkhand  After the preparations have been made, the utensils and the earthen hearth is cleaned only using cow dung.
 
Randhan Chhath, and the next day, together bring luck in the life of married people and success in the life of children. Success and wealth is also a wishful outcome of these two days.
