There is a tradition of worshipping Ganesha and the Moon by placing all the material of worship on it.

People have been celebrating the Chaurachan Puja in this sense for centuries. All the people present in the worship keep some fruit in their hands like cucumber and banana and worship and see the moon. During the worship of Chautchandra, the curd is made in a special pot of clay, which is called Athara in Maithili. The taste of this yoghurt is distinctive and unique.
