  6. In South we make Panchamirtham with banana, honey, jaggery etc., I didn't know about this North Indian panchamirth until one of my friends made it on Janmashtami. I totally loved the taste and flavour of it. She add makhana too. From that time I love this humble prasad.

  9. The most important requirement for any religious ceremony or Pooja. Signifies the five nectars of God. I always wait eagerly for the panchamrut prasadum after Poojas.
