Reading through Indian mythology it quickly becomes evident that societies grew and explored various food habits. There is a predominantly place for food preparation presentation. This was thereby classified as naivedyam or prasadam. This is nothing but the offering to the favorite deity. Each deity therefore had preferences based on regional cuisine and popular food patterns. With Krishna there is nothing better than milk, yogurt and butter.
The story of Krishna evolved around the whole world of farming and cow herding. With such lovely stories spun under humble surroundings the details make all the difference. With elaborate description of the milk and various products from it and the elaborate recipes prepared from them provide a curiosity buzz too.Milk, yogurt, butter, cream, cheese,buttermilk, whey all add up the fullness of life. the preparations to celebrate the birth of Krishna also make sure of the use of these elements too.
Now to the recipe
This gopalkala recipe has been on my previous blog for quite a while. I have retained the same picture. This simple and easy recipe is not just perfect for a nivedyam but also is very useful for a quick no cooking lunch or dinner. The softening of the rice flakes in yogurt and cucumber juice makes it quite adaptable for the young and adults alike. It’s perfect for a hot weather.
