Dhaniya Panjiri- a very healthy,nutritious sweet made with Ghee roasted coriander powder, nuts and powdered sugar
Dhaniya panjiri is often made on festival ,pooja or any auspicious occasion .The recipe is quite easy and simple as you need just few easily available ingredients and then roast the whole coriander or use powdered coriander/ dhaniya and then roast it in pure ghee till it turn fragrant and when it cool down slightly then add powdered sugar or boora and lots of dry fruits .
It is also a must for the prashad for Krishna Janmashtami pooja . Most of the temple distribute this dhaniya panjiri as prashad on this day . My mother also make this dhaniya panjiri and Mewa paag on every Janmashatmai along with so many other falahari dishes like this- Rajgiri poori , Sabudana khichdi , Sama aur aloo ki tikki and Aam papad ki chutney to serve along these snacks .
Janmastmai is a Religious celebration so whole day so many dishes are made and offered to lord krishna as Naivadhya and then at mid night the birth of Krishna is celebrated with pooja , bhajan and Panchamrit snan and then Naivadhya or prashad is offered to krishna kanhaiya and then it is distributed among the devotes and to the family members
This Dhaniya panjiri is healthy and nutritious so you can also have it when ever you wish to have some thing sweet . This is also good for lactating mothers and a very good post natal food.
