Tips for Preparing Perfect Panjiri For Janmashtami Prasad

– Choose Top-Quality Products: Start with whole coriander seeds, dry fruits, and besan while making Coriander Panjiri. Make certain they are well-cleaned.

– Eliminate Moisture: To achieve the greatest outcomes, think about exposing the coriander seeds to sunlight.

– Coriander should be lightly roasted before being used to make Coriander Panjiri. Ghee should be used in this process.

– To retain a coarse texture and prevent a powdery consistency, grind the coriander slowly in a mixer after it has cooled.

– Depending on your choice, prepare the dry fruits by either roughly grinding them or simply mixing them into the Panjiri after they have been fried.

– Add Sugar Candy Powder: To give your Panjiri Prasad a sweet touch, finely powder some sugar candy and combine it with the remaining ingredients.

– Complete mixing: Use a hand mixer to fully incorporate all the components.

– When creating flour-based panjiri, be sure to roast the flour until it turns golden and releases a mild aroma.

– Cool Before Adding Sweetener: To keep the correct consistency, the flour needs enough time to cool before adding dried fruits and sweets.
