Curd ..... 2 tbsps
Honey ... 1 tbsp
Ghee ..... 1/2 tsp
Banana ...2 tbsps (mashed)
Tulsi leaves .. few
1. Combine all the ingredients together in a bowl.
2. Add some Tulsi leaves.
3. Serve a spoonful as Prashad after offering to God.
This is very traditional in all Hindu ceremonies for bathing the gods and serving as prasad.ReplyDelete
We add milk, yoghurt, sugar, honey and ghee never banana, its interesting how it differs from region to region.
In South India they add sometimes and my grandma used to add to reduce the sugar quantity and also enhance the flavour. It gives thickness alsoDelete
I always look out for Panchamrut prasad while I attend any Hindu religious ceremonies. Here in UK we add saffron but never seen banana.ReplyDelete
Saffron must be giving a lovely flavour and colour.. nice to know that.Delete
