At my home every year in the auspicious month of Shravan we have Satyanarayan puja.
It’s a very popular ritual in many of the states of India and done yearly in many homes.This pooja is incomplete without offering special tirth and prasad to the lord.
This sheera which is made as prasad has a distinctive flavour,It is believed that any day other than Pooja,if you make this prasad with same measurement and technique still it won’t taste the same.
Traditionally it is made with equal measure of all the ingredients,and mostly 1.25 either cup,glass or kg.
