Most devotees observe full day fast on the diet of fruits and juices. Usually people don't mind to have single fasting meal in the evening.
On the next day of Maha Shivaratri, the food which specially includes plain rice and yellow curry made of gram flour is offered to the deity of Lord Shiva and after that it is given to some Baba known as Bham Bole who symbolically represents the Lord Shiva. Only after this offering family members can have the food.It explains how Maha Shivaratri is celebrated and known by most of the Indians. However, there is another strict Vidhi which has been suggested in most religious books.
