The grains mostly allowed during vrat are Singhare ka atta (water chestnut flour), Kuttu ka atta (buckwheat flour), Rajgira ka atta (amaranth flour) and rajgira (amaranth), Sama ke chawal ka atta (barnyard millet flour), Vrat ke chawal (barnyard millet), Arrowroot flour or paniphal flour.

The vegetables that can be consumed during fasting or vrat are Potatoes, petha or pumpkin, shakarkandi or sweet potato, arbi or kachalu or colocasia, suran or jimkand or yam, raw banana,raw or semi ripe papaya,
Some people also use tomatoes ,spinach (palak), bottle gourd (lauki), cucumber (kheera) and carrots (gajar).
