Panchamrutham Recipe – Palani style

Panchamrutham recipe, palani style

Panchamrutham from Palani

Palani the temple abode and one of the six famous among  the ones for Lord Muruga, in India. One of the  most famous offering at this temple is , of course the Panchamritham which is use for Abhishekam ( ritual bathing of the idol). The Panchamrutham recipe from Palani was perhaps the most sought after during our childhood. My  maternal grandfather too had a secret stack of this as he was a stunch believer. Yet for his own temple and pooja functions he used his own recipe which was near perfect. So this one is is based on his  Panchamrutham recipe.

Panchamrutham is one of the easiest naivedyam or offering recipe you could prepare on a busy festival day. With Thai poosam nearing, perhaps these memories prompted me to bring back his memories and this lovely recipe.This recipe calls for five sweet elements you find in most Indian houses – Banana, dates,raisins, honey and jaggery. So gather up your ingredients and lets start cooking…
