Janmashtami, the festival of birth of Lord Krishna, falls on the eighth day of Krishna Paksha in the month of Bhadrapada. This year it will be celebrated on Wednesday, 6th and 7th September. Devotees of Lord Krishna observe fast throughout the day and perform puja at midnight when Lord Krishna is believed to be born. On this occasion, various types of dishes are prepared and offered to Lord Krishna. Since Lord Krishna loves milk and butter, you can include banana and cashew kheer in the offering.





Jaggery Powder Pistachio

Preparation of Banana and Cashew Kheer:

Start by heating milk in a saucepan.

Mash half a banana and make a paste with half the cashews. Mix this paste in milk.
