Panchmewa Pag (Dry fruits fudge) : Krishna Janmastami Special

Hello everyone, today I will be showing you all, how to prepare Panchmewa Pag or dry fruits burfi. This goes as a bhog to Laddogopal (Krishna Bhagwan) on the occasion of Janmashtami. Janmashtami is on one of the very important festival in our house. During my childhood we used to decorate the entire house with balloons and other stuff. Mummy used to prepare various Prasad items like Panjeeri, Charnamrit and Pag. After Marriage I too celebrate it every year and make prasad like my mom does. 

As the name says, Panchmewa Pag is prepared with five types of dry fruits like dried coconut, Fox nut or Makhana, Charoli or Chironji, Green raisins and Melon seeds. But being in London, I usually don't get many things easily. Hence I make it on my own way since few years and it tastes amazingly good. Its a quick recipe and can be stored for 15-20 days in an air tight container. So lets quickly run through the ingredients following the method.

Ingredients :
  • Dried coconut shredded : 2 cups
  • Green Raisins : 3/4 cup
  • Chopped Walnuts : 3/4 cup
  • Chopped Almond : 3/4 cup
  • Chopped Pistachios : 3/4 cup
  • Sugar :1 & 1/2 cups 
  • Water : 3/4 cup
  • Green cardamom : 3-4 pods crushed
Method :
  • In a pan take sugar and water, heat the mixture and continuously stir unless sugar is dissolved.
  • Once dissolved, let is cook unless you get single thread consistency. I have shown in the video that how to check for one thread consistency.
  • Once you get it, add the dry fruits and give a quick mix and turn off the gas.
  • Transfer the mixture on to a greased plate or in a tin as shown in the video. Level it a bit and let it sit for half an hour.
  • Once set, cut it into desired shapes and your prasad is ready :)

Notes :
  • You can take any dryfruits of your choice or on your availability.
  • While making syrup one thread consitensy is very important, otherwise your pag will not set.
  • If not set, no need to worry, put your mixture again in the pan, heat up and again set.
