The 36-hour fast of fasting women starts from this day itself. After Kharna, all the fasting women consume food and water only after offering Arghya to the rising sun. In such a situation, women who are going to observe Chhath fast for the first time should know how to prepare Kharna Prasad. Let us tell you that on the day of Kharna, Jaggery Kheer is made with milk and jaggery. Let us know its simple recipe –
Rice- 500 grams
Jaggery – 150 grams

Kharna Prasad is made on a pure and new stove. Although Prasad should be prepared on an earthen stove, people living in cities can also use gas. Provided that the gas or stove is clean and new. To make Kheer Prasad to be offered in the worship of Kharna, first heat the milk. Now add about a glass of water to it. While it is still lukewarm, clean the rice thoroughly with water.
