Four Janmashtami Bhog Recipes
1. Dhaniya Panjiri
The celebrations of Janmashtami are incomplete without making dhaniya panjiri. It is among the most delicious and essential Janmashtami prasad recipes and is distributed among devotees after the bhajans (devotional songs) and puja (offering prayers).
Prepared using coriander powder, boora chini (powdered raw sugar), ghee (clarified butter) and nuts, this is a mouth-watering prasad.
Charnamrit is a sweet milky concoction, and we distribute it as prasad. Also, it is one of the easiest Janmashtami recipes.
3. Mishri Maakhan
We cannot celebrate the birth of ‘Nanhe Maakhan Chor’ without making his favourite ‘safed maakhan’ (white butter).
A special bhog of maakhan mishri is prepared to be offered to the deity and is among the easy and quick Janmashtami recipes.
Mishri maakhan is ready. Offer it to ‘Ladoo Gopal’ and enjoy with paratha and poori as prasad.
The famous ‘Mathura ka peda’ is divine in all senses. In taste, flavour and also the fact it comes from Mathura, Krishna’s birthplace. Also, we offer this sweet delight to Krishna with devotion and to break one’s fast.
Peda is prepared by cooking together mawa (khoya), milk, sugar and ghee. Adding cardamom powder and coarsely ground pistachios enhance the flavour of the mithai. It is among the most searched for Janmashtami bhog recipes.
Offer the pedas as prasadam and feel one with the Lord.
So, these were some of the popular Janmashtami bhog recipes. Do try them and show your devotion to the naughty Krishna.
Bring in Janmashtami with a bhajan on your lips and a prayer in your heart.
