Janmashtami is the grand celebration of Lord Krishna’s birth, and it is an occasion that draws devotees into a spirit of joy and togetherness to offer their prayers and delicious Prasad to Kanhaiya. The Prasad includes some traditional delicacies specially prepared with milk products, and after the puja, the devotees relish these dishes. So, this blog brings you some popular milk-based delicacies and products from Rajbhog Foods for you to make offerings of some divine delights during the festival of Janmashtami.
Janmashtami, or Krishna Janmashtami as it is widely known, is a jubilantly celebrated Hindu festival that is regarded as the birthday of Lord Krishna, the avatar of Vishnu. During the Janmashtami celebration, people gather with their families and loved ones, offer their prayers to Kanhaiya, and indulge in lots of merriment by decorating their homes and hosting various activities such as Bhajans, short plays replicating a specific period of Lord Krishna’s life, and several more in honor of the deity.
But when it comes to Janmashtami Puja, besides the decorations and devotional ceremonies, one most important things is the prasad. As we all know, little Kanha is the ‘natkhat’ child who used to love makhan, so we offer him pure, lip-smacking traditional dishes made out of milk. Therefore, during the Janmashtami festival, it is a tradition to serve Lord Krishna a prasad full of divine milk delicacies to satisfy his soul and earn his graceful blessings.
In this blog, we bring you some milk products, traditional sweets, and mouthwatering desserts from Rajbhog Foods that you can use to prepare the Janmashtami prasad and serve Lord Krishna on this beautiful occasion.
