Pazhani Panchamritham

Pazhani is one of the famous abodes of Lord Muruga.Panchamirtham is used for Abhishekam which is then offered as Prasatham.It is belived that this Panchamirtham has medicinal properties as well since it is used for Abhishekam and also stays good for a longer period of time without refrigerating.The taste and flavor is unique here.
Pancha - Five Amritham - Nectar indicates that this prasad is made of five major ingredients.There are various versions of Panchamirthams with different ingredients (e.g curd, milk, rasins etc). I got the basic information of Panchamirtham prepared at Pazhani at http://www.palanimurugantemple.org .It is said that Virupachi banana is used that has less water content  mixed with Kandasari sugar.
I am posting a simple Panchamirtham recipe which can be prepared in minutes and ideal for all the poojas at home




Ingredients
Ripe Banana: 2 medium sized (Hill banana)
Chopped Dates: 4
Grated Jaggery : 2 tablepoons
Honey: 1 tsp
Ghee: 1 tsp
Cardomom: 2 pods


Procedure:
Step1:
Mash the banana


Step2:
Add the finely chopped dates


Step3:
Add jaggery and mix well


Step4:
Finally add honey, ghee and cardomom and mix well.At this stage you will definitely feel the divine aroma



Thanks to Priya of NowServing for reminding me of a classical melody of Sudha Raghunathan
"Kumara malai kuyilinam koovum isai ketkuthu' where she sings about Pazhani Panchamirtham
"Pazhani malai panchamirtham naavile inikuthu..."
