Panchakhadya

This recipe has been shared by Mints for ICC.



Ingredients
  • 1 cup grated dry coconut
  • 4-5 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp poppy seeds / Khus Khus
  • 4-5 dried dates (Maharashtrians call it kharik)
  • 1/2 tbsp cardamom powder
  • 4-5 tbsp coarsely powdered mixed nuts (almonds,cashews, pistachios)
  • pinch of nutmeg powder

Method
  • Dry roast grated coconut on a very light heat and set aside
  • Dry roast poppy seeds and grind them coarsely after cooling them for 5 minutes
  • Take the seeds off the dried dates and grind them coarsely as well.
  • Mix all these ingredients and nuts powder, cardamom, nutmeg, powdered sugar together and offer to Ganesha as prasad
Changes made by me:
Since I didn't have cashews & pistachios I have added some dried cranberry and almonds
I have not added nutmeg powder.
