Karwa Chauth 2019: Post Vrat Dinner Ideas And Restaurants In Mumbai

We are officially in overdrive because the festive season is finally here. And post a very colourful Navratri and Durga Puja, it is time to celebrate the Festival of Lights. And you know what that means. Lots of food, some well-deserved holiday weight and just good food around in general. But we go ham on all that good cookin’, the first thing to hit us is Karwa Chauth. Celebrated by Indian women all over the world, the day sees a woman fasting and praying for long lives for their husbands. They stay the entire day without food and water and break their fast as soon as the moon peeps out of the clouds at night. It’s quite a romantic affair and men, with a woman keeping a fast for you steadfastly, it only makes sense for you to treat her right. And what’s better than a good, romantic meal after all that fasting. Som here’s a list of the restaurants in Mumbai to go to post Karwa Chauth. And remember, keep it romantic.
