                     On the auspicious occasion of Mahashivratri, Hindu devotees  observe Shivratri Vrat or Upvaas or fast...Devotees observe a strict fast on  Mahashivaratri. They do not consume anything other than the diet formulated especially for the occasion.Some devotees observe nirahar vrat( meaning not eating food and  drinking even beverages like tea, milk or even water).
                    While some people who can't keep nirahar vrat eat a diet which is without anything made with rice, pulses or wheat. The devotees may eat fruits and drink tea, milk or coffee during the fast, if they have not observed nirahar vrat (fasting without the consumption of any form of food).

                        Those who fast, diligently follow the set rules as to what can be eaten and what should not be eaten. The food taken during mid-day consists of non-cereal preparations made without using onion, garlic, ginger, turmeric powder,rai etc. Instead ingredients such as cumin seeds, rock salt and chillies are used.  The sweets can be of milk without the use of lentils .  No meal is taken during the night. After a night long worship of the Lingam, the fast is broken the next morning.

Sendha namak (rock salt) is used to prepare the food for the fast.
