Women rise early as the fast starts from sunrise. They feast on Sargi, a meal prepared specially for them by their mother-in-law. After this meal, for the entire day they don’t eat anything and ideally, should not drink water till moonrise. Women also offer prayers to Lord Shiva, Lord Kartika and Goddess Parvati. In the evening, women perform a pooja, offer eatables to the deities and pray for the safety and longevity of their husbands.

After moonrise, women will look at the moon and then, their husbands through a sieve and the men will offer their wives water to break their fast.

Ahoi Ashtami Vrat is observed for the well-being of children after four days of Karwa Chauth.
