As far the prasadams (offering to God) go , the Indian festival of Rama Navami has got to be the simplest. While growing up as a kid, it used to be quite a let down for me given how much I would look forward to all the different savories/sweets that's normally prepared during festivals. I am not big on sweets hence Krishna Jayanthi
was my favourite. All those Murukkus
- mmm ....Y.U.M. But as the years have gone by, I have come to appreciate the simplistic approach, where minimalism provides the maximum benefits. The traditional dishes made during Rama Navami being such an example. None of the dishes are heavy or time consuming yet are completely appetizing. This festival comes during the hottest time of the year and hence the offering is extremely heat friendly that could be put together in a jiffy.
