Dhania Panjiri/ Janmashtami Special

Since my childhood, I saw my mother preparing so many dishes for Janmashtami like makhana Kheer,gond panjiri,dhania panjiri,khoya panjiri,buckwheat flour panjiri. All these are must at my house. But in Malaysia I  can’t get khoya so I only made Gond panjiri,Dhania panjiri and  makhana Kheer.

Dhaniya panjiri is usually made for the prasad.
