Mavinkai Pachadi (Ram Navmi Prasadam)

Posted on Updated on


Ram Navmi is the birthday of lord Rama and falls exactly 9 days after the Chandramana Ugadi. It is celebrated in most of the temples like most Hindu festivals. After the pooja the typical prasad offered to the lord is the Mavinkai Pachadi (raw mango) and the Jaggery Panaka. I am putting both of them today.
