Four Janmashtami Prasad Recipes | Delectable Janmashtami Recipes | Celebrating Lord Krishna

Excited to welcome ‘Bal Gopal’ to your home? Searching for lip-smacking Janmashtami recipes to celebrate the Lord’s love for food?

Krishna Janmashtami or Gokulashtami is just around the corner. Celebrating the birth of Lord Krishna, the festival falls on 24th August this year. 

There is an air of piety in the air. Positivity and happiness prevail, and many households are gearing up to offer the traditional ‘Chappan Bhog’ to the Lord.

Every home has its unique Janmashtami recipes, and are getting ready to prepare delicious traditional dishes as an offering.

Among these are the Janmashtami Prasad Recipes. From the famous Mathura peda, dhaniya panjiri, to charnamrit and Krishna’s favourite maakhan mishri, all are prepared with much zeal and enthusiasm.

Here are four Janmashtami Prasad recipes that will both delight you and give you a sense of being close to the Lord.

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.  

Quick Recipe

  • Roast ½ a cup of coriander powder in 2 tablespoons of ghee.
  • Take off burner ad let it cool completely.
  • Now, mix in 1/4th cup of sugar, chopped almonds and raisins and mix well.
  • You can also add desiccated coconut to the panjiri to enhance its flavour and taste.
  • Distribute delicious dhaniya panjiri among devotees with love and devotion.  This prasad is usually accompanied by ‘Charnamrit,’ a sweetened drink made with sliced bananas.

 

2. Charnamrit

Charnamrit is a sweet milky concoction, and we distribute it as prasad. Also, it is one of the easiest Janmashtami recipes


 

Quick Recipe

  • Take ½ a cup of milk. To it, add 1/4th cup yoghurt and mix well.
  • Add two tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon each of ghee and shakkar (jaggery) and mix well.
  • Add chopped banana and makhane (Fox nuts).
  • Charnamrit, a symbol of Lord Krishna’s blessings, is ready.

 

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.


 

Quick Recipe

  • Take 1 cup unsalted and cold fresh cream or malai.
    • Whip it for a few minutes till the butter forms in a lump and separates, leaving behind buttermilk. 
    • Drain the buttermilk 
  • Add 1/4th cup mishri (rock candy) to the butter

Mishri maakhan is ready.  Offer it to ‘Ladoo Gopal’ and enjoy with paratha and poori as prasad.

 

4. Peda

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.

Quick Recipe

  • Mix 500 grams khoya with 300 grams powdered sugar and one tablespoon of milk in a pan.
  • Cook over low heat, stirring continuously.
  • Cook till the mixture becomes thick and gooey.
  • Now take it off the flame and leave it to cool.
  • Once cool, add cardamom powder and pistachios and mix well.
  • Divide the mixture into equal portions and shape into round balls and press slightly to flatten a bit.

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.
