In my childhood days, we all use to go to all the Krishna temples( Bhagwan kojhula julne). I used to be up till midnight to get the Panjiri Prasad, Krishna Ji’s birthday used to be just the excitement used to be on a whole different level. This year, even though I can’t go to the temple, I prepared this Panjiri for my kids to enjoy.
Coriander Powder (Dhaniya) – 150gm
Sugar Powder- 100gm
Small Cardamom – 5
Cashew Nuts- 15 (Chopped)
Almonds- 15 (Chopped)
Dry Coconut- 1 Cup (Grated)
Raisins (Kishmish)- 5 gm ( optional)
Clarified Butter (Desi Ghee)- 2tbs
Gond ( edible gum ) 1 tsp
- It is a simple and quick recipe, but with that, it is very much healthy!!
- Firstly heat up half of the desi ghee (clarified butter ) in a pan and fry gond on medium flame and take aside.
- After that take it out in a plate or bowl, and after it gets cool crush them with hands.
Now in that ghee only roast cashew, almonds and dry coconut on low flame for 2-3 minutes. I usually use chopped dry fruits but you can also grind them. Now transfer them also in a plate.
- After that put rest of ghee in pan and roast coriander powder (dhaniya) in it and roast it on low flame.
- Roast dhaniya for few minutes till it changes its colour and starts spreading its aroma. At the time of roasting add cardamom seeds to it so that its aroma also get locked in it.
- After roasting it transfer coriander powder to a mixing bowl and add everything else into it, sugar powder, cashew, almonds, dry coconut, and gond.
Mix them all properly and our Janmashtami special Dhaniya Panjiri is Ready
- Taste your nuts before toasting. Rancid nuts will spoil the whole recipe.
- If you want you can add Foxnuts and rasin too.
- Bitter taste in Panjiri? If coriander powder is not roasted well, it will leave a slightly bitter taste. The key to avoiding bitter taste is to cook the coriander powder until it turns darker in shade and begins to emit a nutty aroma.
