Right after Navratri, Ashtami, and Dussehra people are ready to celebrate the festival of Karwachauth. This festival is mainly celebrated by married women but is associated with everyone. 

On this day married women observe Nirjala fast (fast without food and water) from sunrise to moonrise for the prosperity and long life of their husband. They start their day by eating Sargi in the morning before sunrise and then drink water only after sighting the moon in the evening. Sargi, a pre-dawn meal holds great importance in this festival. Sargi basically contains dishes and desserts in which the most important sweet dish is Feniya which is basically a vermicelli pudding made from the thin strands of vermicelli or soot feni. 

Here is how you can make Feniya in a very easy way for your sargi. The ingredients are easily available and you can cook it in a very short time.


• 1 pack of soot feni

• ½ liter milk

• 2 tablespoon ghee

• Sugar as per taste
