Vakra-Tunndda Maha-Kaaya Surya-Kotti Samaprabha, Nirvighnam Kuru Me Deva Sarva-Kaaryessu Sarvadaa ....Wish U all a HAPPY Ganesh chaturthi...On this auspicious day, an authentic prasad offered to lord Ganesh in most part of Odisha is – “Chudaa Ghasaa” (a recipe made with crushed poha as main ingredient). All Ganesh pendals visited by devotees are greeted with this form of prasad. I also made this today for lord of knowledge and sharing with you all..
Chuda/ Poha/ beaten rice - 2 cups ( serves 2)
Desi ghee- 5tsp
Grated coconut- ½ cup
Powdered Sugar- ½ cup
Cardamom powder -1 tsp
Black pepper powder- 2tsp
Til/ rashi ladoo- crushed ( optional for better taste..i didn’t have in my kitchen so couldn’t use)
Fruits (sliced apple, banana, cucumber, grapes)- 1 cup
Grind Poha coarsely. Pour them to a big thali/ any flat container. Add Desi ghee & sugar to it. Mix well. Now it’s time for some exercise. Rub them with the help of your palms to make an even mixture. Add the grated coconuts & again mix well. Then add black pepper powder & cardamom powder to the mixture. If it is dry u may sprinkle little bit water to the mixture to make it soft. Now it’s time to add the fruits & til ladoo. Mix all again & now it is ready to offer as a Prasad.
