We celebrated Krishna Jayanthi pooja early today as Sendhil is leaving to Norway for an official trip.My in-laws are here with us and we had a great celebration.My MIL made this Panchamirtham using poha/Aval and mixed fruits.It was so nice.Last year we performed Ganapathi Homam in our house. At that time,priest made this aval panchamirtham to offer in Homam and he gave us as Prasad too.My MIL reminded that and she made it today for Naivedyam as Lord Krishna is fond of both Aval & fruits. It was delicious & it took just few minutes to prepare.She also told me to blog this recipe for people who cannot make deep fried stuffs.It can be prepared even in the last minute before pooja. Friends,if you are looking for some easy,no cook aval recipe for krishna janmashtami,just try this.Offer this to God along with fruits,curd,milk & butter. I am sure Krishna would be pleased and bless us !
