Panchakhadya is a tradtionally a Mahastrian Ganpathi prasad. Maharastrians make this using dried dates, rasins and nuts. Traditionally it is like the panchamirtham we make with five ingredients.In karnataka also they make a similar one like this with different ingredients. I have tasted this many times in my friend's place, but never asked her for the recipe. This year i wanted to post this simple recipe for ganesh chaturthi and asked her for the recipe. I just made the way she told and it tasted nice too. Wishing all my readers a very Happy Ganesh Chaturthi. May this festival brings you all a lot of abundance and joy.
