Sapapda Bhakshya is a perfect prasadam that makes the taste buds dance
Sapada is the favourite sheera Prasad that is exclusively offered at Satyanarayana Vratha/Pooja. It is an extremely good, delightful, and delectably delicious dessert. As a prasadam, only a spoonful of Sapada is served which only leaves you wanting more of it. Since, the quantity offered is not enough, here is the recipe to enjoy the Sapada at home. When semolina is cooked with ghee, milk, and banana, the incredible flavour and scent are enhanced, yielding an extremely lip-smacking dish. The dessert is well-balanced and powerfully packed with raisins, cashews and bananas. The Sapapda melts as soon as it goes. Make this sweet dish whenever you want as it is simple to cook with easily available and affordable ingredients. Prepare this overwhelming Sapada as a snack, for brunch, for tea or at night.
Sapada comes from Sapatha. The concept underlying Sapatha is ‘sama patha’ or equal portions of all elements. In other words, everything is simply assembled and prepared in even proportions. The divine Sapada Bhakshya, aka Satyanarayana Prasada, is traditionally prepared with exactly 5 ingredients – semolina, milk, banana, ghee and sugar. In North India, it is widely called ‘Sooji ka Halwa’ and is prepared during the 9-day festival, Navratri. Apart from being a prasadam, it is happily relished on festivals or on special and happy days. Follow the dimensions and instructions below, nevertheless, if you want flawless Sapatha paksha.
