Panagam, Neermore and Kosmalli (No Fire Recipes)

Ram Navami is celebrated to proclaim the birth of Lord Sriram, the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu. It is very auspicious to offer Panagam, Neermore and Kosmalli as Naivedhyam and seek his blessings. This year Sri Rama Navami is on April 15. And also no doubt that these dishes are very good for our health, especially to beat this hot summer....

Take 1/4 kg of Jagerry, powder it  and dissolve it in 300 ml of water. Once the jagerry is well dissolved filter it and remove the dust and dirts.

  1. Please refrain from using Hindi words... Why don't you use English words like Asafatetia, instead of Hing.
