Shri Krishna Jayanti 2011 - Appam, Nippattu, Poha+Sabudana Kheer - Prasadam for Lord Krishna.

Last weekend on 21st and 22nd August Krishna Jayanti/ Gokulashtami  was celebrated by all Krishna devotees all over the world. I celebrated by doing simple Shri Krishna Pooja and cooked one savory and  two sweet dishes for Krishna Neyvaedyam/Prasadam offering. I made appam and  Kheer with Dagdi Poha(aval)+ Sabudana, combining poha and sabudana gave wonderful texture, taste to the Kheer. For savory dish I made Nippattu (south Indian savory crunchy snack)with some deviation from authentic recipe. I flavored Nippattu with two pot grown American herbs Rosemary and Sage, also replaced chana Dal with split green peas. This twist made nippattu extra delicious.( I will blog detail recipes later). This year it was great joy to use all Indian flowers for pooja  from my patio garden. I used sadafuli (periwinkle), Zandu (Marigold), Aboli/Kanakambaram (crossandra/firecracker). Last year I had made sattvik Vrat friendly dinner for Krishnashtami . Click here to check. Scroll down to enjoy some pictures of Shri Krishna Pooja and his favorite dishes.

May Krishna Bhagwan always shower his divine blessings on all of us.
Jai Shri Krishna!!

sm, I think 100 is good enough because if some one want to further explore posts then they can always click on labels and archive. I always do that when I want to read old posts from realityviews. Thanks for paying heed to given feedback.
