On 13th February 2018, Hindus across the world will be celebrating Mahashivratri, the festival that falls in the month of phaguna.
Apart from this, panchamrit is also offered to the God and later served as prasad to the devotees. Panchamrit makes for an important prasad in most Hindu pujas and is considered auspicious and highly-pleasing to the deities. This simple preparation of five ingredients (hence the name) is believed to be a healthy drink that purifies the body.
Panchamrit is prepared using five ingredients that include milk, curd, ghee, honey and sugar. Also known as charnamrit, it makes for a popular prasad in Northern India. Here's how you can make this prasad at home on Mahashivratri 2018.
