Various dishes are made on this day to offer to the deity. We made chawal ki kheer as a bhog (prasad). Rice Kheer or Chawal ki Kheer is a milk based sweet and this creamy dish that is offered to lord Krishna on the auspicious occasion of Janmashtami.

This tradition is going on my mom side, so I followed the same tradition. As we all know the story goes Lord Krishna was very fond of butter and all dairy products. So dishes using milk, or milk products like dahi, white butter are included in the prasad(bhog).

On the auspicious occasion of Janmashtami,I am praying for your happiness and prosperityMay Lord Krishna bless you today and foreverWish you a Happy Janmashtami 🙏🙏

Kheer is an Indian pudding where rice is cooked with milk until creamy texture. Traditionally kheer is seasoned with cardamom and saffron.

Kheer is an all time favorite Indian dessert. All of us, in fact have grown up, enjoying it with the family and for all festivities, it's a must sweet at our home. Rice Kheer also brings back many memories of my childhood. I've learn this thick & creamy texture rice ki kheer from my papa(dad). Whenever we visit to my hometown, my dad make chawal ki kheer for us(for all siblings) and that will be finished in same day only. 😜😋😋
