Prasadam: Food of the Hindu Gods

Nalini Rajan (Author)
Synopsis Prasadam is a cook-book with a difference. From olden times, every community in India celebrates various festivals and the most enjoyable feature of the celebration is to eat one's favourite foods. Every festival traditionally has one or more sweets and savouries to go with the occasion, for example, Payasam for Hindu New Year, Thengai Poli for full moon day of the month of Shravan, Pooranpoli for harvest times, Murukku for Krishna Jayanti, and so on. Likewise, tradition prescribes the cooked savouries and sweets that must be offered to every deity. Indeed, even different foods are offered to the same deity in different seasons. Many legends, myths and tales of mysticism are retold in this book about the deities in the Hindu pantheon. Interwoven with the stories are recipes of sumptuous delicacies that are favourites of the Gods and men alike. This beautifully illustrated book is invaluable to all who are interested in participating in Hindu festivals with exuberance and enthusiasm and who wish to partake of the traditional foods cooked on these occasions.
