panchamrut prasad is served at religious festivals like janmashtami and any pujas at home like satyanarayan puja or ganesh poojan.

In Sanskrit panch means 5, as in 5 ingredients used and amrut means nectar which is the drink of gods. Panchamrut is believed to be purifying and nourishing and is used during the pujas and later given as prasad too.

Those who come to darshan or pooja, only have a teaspoon of panchamrut.

A garnish of basil leaves gives the Panchamrut a nice flavour and aroma too. Enjoy this panchamrut prasad at home during religious festivals.

We are told never to mix equal quantities of honey and ghee. It is according to the Ayurveda, Virodhi Aahar and is toxic. Either of them should be increased and made unequal.
